Since starting this website, I've primarily been watching movies on Thursday nights after work. Rather than doing midnight showings, movie theaters are now playing movies that open Friday on Thursday night starting around 8:00 pm. It makes sense to me, and it's gotta be better for business. Unfortunately Jersey Boys wasn't playing last night, so I had to watch it this morning. There are some perks to going to the matinee, though. First of all, it's way cheaper! Ticket prices are usually about $12.50 around here, and that drops all the way down to $7 for matinee hours. Excellent! So by my calculation, going to the matinee instead will save me over a whopping $400 a YEAR! Boy howdy! You can bet your butt I'll be back for the matinee real soon! Also, as long as your movie starts before noon, you get the matinee price, so you might even get to sleep in a little bit. Sleeping in is 100% 5 Minute Movie Guy approved! And hey, maybe I'll have some more funny stories to share next time.
Oh and to those of your wondering, I chose Jersey Boys over Think Like A Man Too for two reasons. For one, it's directed by Clint Eastwood and has Christopher Walken. That's enough to sell me on any movie. And also, I've already seen 3 comedies so far in in less than a month (A Million Ways to Die in the West, Blended, and 22 Jump Street), so I was being open to trying something different. Plus none of you voted for it in Pick My Flick, so I'm guessing you're probably not too interested in the movie anyway.
