cinemark western hills
The Western Hills cinema complex, which has had numerous owners, has always had Tuesday night as discount night. Tuesday night first-runs are now only $5.50, which is less than a regular matinee costs. The complex must have made this change recently, because I don't remember it being that cheap before.
I went there tonight, Tuesday, Sept. 29, and the place was packed! I've been to a lot of Tuesday night movies and it was never this busy before! It was more crowded than I've seen the theater on a Saturday night. Even though it was a school night, Hotel Transylvania 2 was sold out and there were lots of kids in the theater.
I went to see Everest and it, too, was well-attended, even though it was a weeknight and the movie has been out for a month and is not a blockbuster. Although I didn't care for the movie too much (my comments about the film are elsewhere), I am always glad to see a movie that isn't superheroes-and-CGI-sequels doing well.
