Carmike Cinemas is starting a new program, wherein Tuesday nights are dubbed Stimulus Nights and everyone gets popcorn & drinks for $1! We hadn’t realized how expensive movie food had gotten until we accidentally shelled out $11.50 for some nachos and a small drink the other day. We would usually just abstain from movie food, but for a buck, a giant tub of greasy popcorn couldn’t hurt! via Consumerist.
And in even better news, we’ve finally got ourselves a discount movie theater! Carmike is converting its Hickory Hollow 8 (yeah, Hickory Hollow is gross, we know) location to a $1.50 movie theater, and we couldn’t be more excited. But we hope you weren’t too attached to their Madison and Antioch locations, because they’ve been put up for sale. Bye bye, $9 movies and $11.50 snacks! For the grand total of $3.50, we can catch a flick, fill up our bellies on chemicals (on Tuesdays, at least), and dodge some bullets! via The Tennessean.
Will new discount prices get you to the movies more often?
