Perhaps no industry has been hurt as much by the COVID-19 crisis than movie theaters. With the nature of movie-going, it is been difficult for cinemas to adjust to the new normal. But local theaters are continuing to try their best to service fans. On Tuesday, January 19th, Showcase Cinemas will offer free popcorn in Boston cinemas to celebrate National Popcorn Day.
The theater chain offers one free small popcorn with all movie tickets, including private screening attendees statewide. Tuesdays is traditionally the best day to hit the theater due to frequent discounts. Showcase is generous in honoring this tradition. Bargain Tuesdays is a staple of the theater chain. This gives Bostonians a chance to see the newest releases at discounted prices.
Additionally, Starpass members will gain admission with an even lower price. Signing up for the loyalty program is easy and 100% free. Once you become a Starpass card holder, you’ll have the opportunity to earn a 10% reward on most purchases and work your way toward a free movie ticket. Note that Bargain Tuesdays does not apply to the SuperLux in Chestnut Hill.
Also, movie-goers may book a private screening with a group of family or friends up to 20 people. Private screenings are very popular nowadays as they are deemed safer than sitting with a group of strangers amidst the pandemic. It costs $199 to book a private screening for new releases.
Speaking of new releases, Wonder Woman 1984 is both in theaters and streaming on HBO Max. However, the filmmakers are encouraging fans to see it in theaters, the way it was meant to be viewed. And Bargain Tuesdays is the perfect way to make that happen. “It’s an opportunity to get out, off the sofa and enjoy a fun, safe, and affordable day at the movies.”, says Vice President of Global Marketing Mark Malinowski.
Commitment To Safety
Showcase is reopening with safety in mind. The ‘Be Showcase Safe” program educates employees on how to properly sanitize theaters after showings, ensuring the safety of movie fans.
