SAN PEDRO, CA — Hoping to offer locals an affordable opportunity to get out of the house on down to the movies during the week, the Warner Grand is dishing out “Warner on Wednesdays”.

Warner On Wednesdays will run every Wednesday in the Summer, accept July 8. Movies are only $3, and for $10 couples can enjoy a “date night” package of 2 tickets, 2 drinks and 2 popcorns.

The 12 movie schedule includes:
6/17 – [PG-13] The Curious Case of Benjamin Button | 6PM AND 9PM
6/24 – [PG-13] Twilight | 6PM AND 9PM

See the full list and more at PR Log.

What a great idea. This is exactly the type of promotions the industry needs. Its like a throw back to the old days. Good Luck with it.

Indeed, this fantastic, movie palace, operated by a nonprofit organization, is doing something great for the community, and well timed as the recession has cut back everybody’s spending. Bravo!

We need more exhibitors who are related to and part of the community. The corporate big boys will never do it as they are too busy catering to a specific demographic and their investors. Besides their bookers are not familiar with the communities for which they book and it is a rare GM who becomes involved in his community.

It does sound great. I doubt that it will spread to very many theaters.

I agree. Here’s wishing that it would spread to many more theatres in many more parts of the United States, including the Bay State and New England, generally.
