If the parking validation person in Gambia theatre tries to talk you into validating at the mall because it's cheaper. Don't listen. It's just two buck less but by the time you get out of the show the validation machine is off so parking will be $26! We had to go back to the theatre, which was closed so we had to get security to ask someone in the office to sell us one for $10. So your best bet is buying validation at the theatre and don't let her talk you out of it!
