Movies are fucking expensive. Seriously, finding a theater that will let you escape reality for less than $12 in this city is practically unheard of. It’s not just tickets: I recently paid $4.50 for a bottle of Dasani (102 degree heat wave, I was desperate okay?) at a theater in downtown Brooklyn. That is some bullshit.
But there are ways to avoid having to take out a second mortgage in order to enjoy a Christopher Nolan-approved date. Free movies in parks aside, it’s helpful to know the theaters that will hook patrons up with deals. Enter Cobble Hill Cinemas.
Cobble Hill has matinee prices before 5 pm like other theaters, but if you don’t feel like sitting in a room breathing in the heady bouquet of old people to save a few bucks, they also offer $7 tickets ALL DAY on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Get there early, though, for popular shows – when I tried to go see Inception there last week, it was sold out and I was forced into the five-dollar-water ghetto. Don’t let that be you.
