The Golden Age of Hollywood was a result of and born during the Great Depression of the 1930s.  In the depths of the Great Depression, between 60 and 80 million Americans went to the movies once a week or more.  It’s time to escape again, and our local movie theaters are making it easier than ever to indulge in a little celluloid escapism.  Read on to hear about deals from 2 local faves!

New Deal Tuesdays! Laemmle Playhouse Movies for $6 bucks! Popcorn for $1

Laemmle Theatres is pleased to announce New Deal Tuesdays. Every Tuesday they’ll charge only $6 for tickets and $1 for small popcorns. The offer is good at all of their theaters, for people of all ages, for any screening on Tuesdays, open to close, special engagements excluded. They haven’t had general admission prices this low in about twenty years, and popcorn prices this low since the ’70s. It is a limited time offer, so take advantage!  We love the tongue in cheek reference to FDR’s “New Deal!”
