For those of you who live in a big city like New York or L.A., the topic of this brief post will hardly come as a surprise to you. For those of you in the other 99% of the country, I wanted to announce that I am no longer a New York City movie theater virgin. I took in a showing of Half Nelson last night (review forthcoming) for the price of $10.75.
There are no discounts in this city. There are no special matinee prices. $10.75. Each and every showing. Take it or leave it.
Best part is, for that price you get to watch a movie during which, at intervals of every 15 minutes or so, the entire building and screen shake and a deep rumble competes with the soundtrack as a subway just below the seats thunders past.
Take it or leave it.
