Vacation, All I Ever Wanted

Sorry, no posts this week as I am enjoying a much needed vacation with my darling, ever-so-supportive wife. I’m looking forward to knocking two more countries off my bucket list (Belize and Honduras) and finally sharing our love of cruising with my oldest and dearest friends.

Spectre

I hope to be back to a full slate of posts next week and while I won’t have the opportunity on vacation, I am very much looking forward to seeing Spectre (I already have three FREE tickets for it).

No Mr. Bond, I Expect You to Buy!

I love going to the movies (duh!) but it’s expensive. I try to finesse every FREE ticket offer and discount to keep my costs down and allow me to attend more often.

Spectre

Best Buy currently has an endcap of single James Bond titles for $7.50 each. Each one contains not only a Blu-Ray but also a digital HD copy AND $7 movie money towards Spectre.

The $7 Spectre coupons are also on many of the Bond films at Target. Many Targets also have cheap Bond Collections with digital HD copies (but no Spectre coupons).

I got the Sean Connery, Pierce Brosnan, and Roger Moore collections from Target, along with Quantum of Solace which had a Spectre ticket. I bought The Living Daylights and Licence to Kill, each with Spectre tickets from Best Buy.

So now I have three tickets for Spectre and all of the canon Bond films on digital HD/UV/Vudu except for George Lazenby’s single turn as Bond in On Her Majesty’s Secret Service.

Wal-Mart and Best Buy (and likely Target as well) have Peanuts movie cash on various children’s features (the Ice Age series, the Garfields, Penguins of Madagascar, Epic, etc) as well as on some DVDs of Peanuts specials.

Lots of Special November Theatrical Showings

November is shaping up to be a good month for movie viewing.

Mockingjay Double

On the 18th, Regal and other chains are showing a Mockingjay double feature. The first feature begins at 4:30. For some reason, my regal (Biltmore Grande) has this listed at a whopping $26.75 as though it were a full marathon and not a double feature. The Carmike in Asheville is playing this for a much more reasonable $15.

Roman Holiday

On the 29th and again on December 2nd (both at 2 and 7), Turner Classic Movies (via Fathom Events) is bringing Roman Holiday back to theaters. This 1953 movie showcases the talents of Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck.

A bored and sheltered princess escapes her guardians and falls in love with an American newsman in Rome.”

Home Alone

Fathom Events and Fox are bringing Home Alone to theaters the 8th and the 11th at 4:30 and 7:30 (except Cinemark theaters where the early showing is 2 instead of 4:30).
