Monday, May 1

All movies are just one dollar at any Wehrenberg Theatre! This includes all showtimes and all titles. Tickets will be sold to auditorium capacity for each scheduled showtime on this day (There is a limit of ten tickets per person.) Tickets will only be available at the theatre boxoffice for performances that day. There will be no prior day advance tickets available and tickets will not be available for sale over the web or Fandango (phone or web). Theatres should plan to open their boxoffices 1 hour before their first advertised showtime. Price templates will be created to address the ticketing specifics.

Tuesday, May 2

Any 20 oz. soft drink is one dollar! Again, this applies to all theatres all day.

Wednesday, May 3

46 oz. popcorn is just one dollar at each Wehrenberg Theatre during the entire day.

They are very proud to be 100-years-old, and the oldest family-owned and operated theatre circuit in the nation. Lets have some fun!!!!

I was born and raised in St. Louis, MO till I was 12 years old and went back there darn near every summer as a teen. Wehrenberg Theatres is synonomous with moviegoing in St. Louis. Hopefully they’ll resurrect the classic 70’s era version of their theme song for this celebration!

I’ve got that theme song online if anyone cares to hear it…

Chris,

Is there a link to the theme song you can provide?

That really is outstanding. Successfully running a business for that long is a big accomplishment.

Congratulations!

Unfortunately, I don’t have a link. The song was sent to me by a friend a couple of years ago.

That’s the one. I forgot it was on CinemaTour.

I wish I could have been home for the big anniversary. Did Wehrenberg play their theme song before the movies that day? If they didn’t, they should have cleaned-up the fim with the logo that the jingle soundtrack was on.

Wehrenberg is and has been a cinema “landmark” of the St. Louis metro area for as long as I can remember. Hopefully, they will continue to be for decades to come.

I don’t know if they played the old theme or not. I live in Orange County, CA and won’t be back to visit St. Louis again until next month. If they play the old theme again, I’ll be sure to let everybody know.
