Half-off for a night at the movies at Kent Theater

Just because summer is over doesn’t mean it’s time to stop going to the movies. After all, we’re still a few months away from Hollywood’s typical late-winter toxic waste dumping season. And before that, comes the fall and winter rush of big movies like the Thor sequel, the Hunger Games sequel, the Secret Life of Walter Mitty and The Counselor which is blessedly not a sequel or based on a book. Why pay top dollar to see one of these though, when you can pay less than the cost of two tickets for the tickets, two drinks and two popcorns?

With this Amazon Local deal, for $17 you can see one of Hollywood’s recycled ideas come to life on a glorious large screen. Bigger than your laptop anyway, which is what you’ve been watching those illegally downloaded movies you naughty consumer you. For context, two tickets at Kent will cost you $18 on their own, so you’re already coming out ahead before you’ve grabbed your medium popcorns and sodas. Bring a flask with some whiskey, and suddenly your ordinary night at the movie becomes a drunken opportunity to yell to Thor to look out behind him or argue over who spotted the Brooklyn in Anchorman 2 first. Actually, don’t do that, don’t be a loud movie jerk.
