You asked and pleaded. You waited and eventually gave up. But then…
It happened–movies are coming to The Bobwhite. And they’re way more recognizable and less dated than one would expect.
Nobody had any illusions of seeing box office hits on Foster. Or at least any from this decade (or even last). Not any time soon, at least. All we really cared about was not having to drive up to the Laurelhurst or Academy to enjoy a movie with our beer, popcorn and/or pizza. (We don’t know what concessions will look like, but expect it.)
Well, it’s happening.
Here’s the rundown:
– Tuesday and Thursday movies, with 4, 6, 8, and 10 pm showings
– If ratings allow, 4 and 6 pm showings will be kid-friendly
– Sunday double features for the family
– 21+ for 8 and 10 pm movies
– $7.50 for adults, $5.00 for 14 and under, $10 for double features
I know what you’re all thinking: “$7.50? That’s way more than the Academy.”
Well, it’s a little more than $3.00 to be exact. But wouldn’t you gladly pay an extra $3.50 for Foster to have an operational movie theater? Sure you would. And you will. Especially if it means you get to see Big Trouble in Little China. That’s right, Big Trouble in Little China, as in Kurt Russell will be gracing our muthaf*#&in’ big screen.
Fun starts in October, just after Nick Haas throws a party for the community and to commemorate The Bobwhite’s 90th birthday.
