Last time I moved to New York I learned that going to the movies costs way more here than it does back in Miami. Going to see a regular movie is maybe $2-3 more, which isn’t too bad. If you want to go to an IMAX, 3D or an IMAX 3D movie you need to plan ahead, and maybe not go out to eat for a week, so you don’t go broke.
We recently found a loophole to New York’s overpriced Cinema (many New Yorkers already know about this loophole). We learned that movies before noon are about $5-7 cheaper. This is where Super Saturday Morning Movies came from.
In the past two weeks I’ve seen two IMAX movies, Iron Man 3 and Oblivion. I have the rest of my time in the Big Apple planned out by which movie I will see each Saturday. Next weekend is the Great Gatsby, then Star Trek, then some more movies and we will finish with Man of Steel.
In college we would do Friday Morning Movies since we never had class on Fridays. Back then movies were $4 before noon, and we would sneak into another one so it would be like paying $2 a movie. Here it is harder to sneak in to a second movie. The theater by us is tough with security.
We could even bring in food (any kind of food), and they were OK with it, in Tallahassee. Last Saturday, I snuck in a muffin, but it was hard work. In the morning they should allow you to bring in outside food and beverages because they don’t serve breakfast food. I’m not going to eat a hot dog at 9am. The only breakfast-y thing they have at AMC theaters is probably cinnamon pretzels, but I don’t want to pay $6 for a breakfast pretzel.
The best part about Super Saturday Morning Movies is that I get to see a movie when I wake up and still have the whole day to do stuff. This Saturday we saw Iron Man 3 at 9am, went to eat breakfast, went to the park, took a nap in the sun, stole a bunch of free smart water, came home, showered, laid down for a bit, went to a BBQ, drank a few beers, ate a few hot dogs, went to a rock show, and then came home at around 3am. It was a long and awesome day, and it all started with IRON MAN 3.
So, I guess what I’m trying to say is, “GO SEE IRON MAN 3 NOW!”
