MIDNIGHT MOVIE MADNESS!

Way back when, movie theaters held midnight premieres for popular films on their opening weekend. We don’t do midnight screenings anymore, but here’s a little know tip, we have 7 p.m. showings on Thursday nights before opening weekend! Wow! Shocker! I know, but a lot people don’t realize this and don’t take advantage of it. And a lot of times, theaters host special events for new movies. For example, a few months back we screened the first two Planet of the Apes movies before the third sequel premiered.

This past week Thor: Ragnarok premiered. On Thursday night at 6 p.m, we held a special fan event where guest could pay a certain price to watch the new movie in 3D and received a special lanyard and a collectable Thor coin.

And even thoughnot all Thursday night showings are fan events, they are still premieres. Since a lot of people don’t realize we have showings the night before the advertised release date, these shows don’t sell out so there’s plenty of room for you!

Keep this in mind for the next big blockbuster you want to see! Elmwood Palace 20 in New Orleans has a Star Wars double feature on December 14; StarWars: The Force Awakens followed by Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

December is stocked full of blockbuster releases! So go ahead and pre-order your ticket for a Thursday night showing!

“There’s only one way to go from here, and that’s UP!” -SING

2017 was supposed to be a HUGE year for Hollywood. Unfortunately the movies haven’t lived up to all the hype. The “summer blockbuster” season managed to only give us sequels from a long line of other sequels (Transformers, Pirates of the Caribbean, Planet of the Apes), the third installments for two kid’s movie franchises (Cars, Despicable Me), and the third full reboot of Spiderman. Can you see why ticket sales were down for the summer? And the movies Hollywood claimed were new, weren’t actually new e.g The Mummy, Dark Tower, and King Arthur. With only three months left to 2017, I’m hoping Hollywood gives us some gems that make a year of okay movies worth having watched.

Here is a list upcoming movies for the next three months that I’m expecting and, let’s be honest, praying will be fantastic and redeem 2017 of it’s first 9 months of box office blah!

  •  Geostorm (Oct. 20)
  • Tyler Perry’s Boo 2! A Madea Halloween (Oct. 20) 
  • Jigsaw (Oct. 27)
  • Bad Moms Christmas (Nov. 1)
  • Thor: Ragnarok (Nov. 3)
  • Murder On the Orient Express: (Nov. 10)
  • Justice League (Nov. 17)
  • Wonder (Nov. 17)
  • Star Wars: The Last Jedi (Dec. 14)
  • Jumanji (Dec. 20)
  • Pitch Perfect 3 (Dec. 22)
