I admit that it’s been a while since I’ve been to the cinema. Even before covid, I hadn’t been there in ages. It’s not that I don’t like a good movie, it’s just that the prices seemed so high. Tickets got expensive, snacks got expensive, and I could watch movies at home. It wasn’t a party, but I saved some money.
When I was a kid, I went to the movies almost every weekend. It was a cheap way to spend an afternoon with friends. Movies only cost a few dollars back then. After the movies, we could grab a bite to eat at a local fast food joint, and for less than 10 bucks, you saw a movie and ate. Easy and cheap. What if I told you that there is a way to always see a good movie and spend an evening without spending an arm and a leg? Well, there are.
Upstate Films just announced $5 Wednesday Movies. Yes, you read that right. On Wednesdays, the Starr Cinema on Montgomery Street in Rhinebeck and the Orpheum Theater on Main Street in Saugerties will offer $5 tickets for everyone on Wednesdays, excluding special events. That’s what I call a good deal. An evening that won’t break the bank.
Upstate Films, which operates both the Starr and the Orpheum, is one of the most respected organizations in the Hudson Valley and beyond. Their mission is to “connect the Hudson Valley through transformative cinematic experiences,” and it’s something they do quite well through their movie theaters and pop-ups throughout the region.
