I love movie marathons. I love checking out of my life, even though it’s wonderful, for a day at the cinema.
* Cinemark (sadly nowhere near me) is having an Expendables marathon on August 14th with the individual movies at 3:15, 5:05, and 7 respectively. They know how to do marathons right. To wit, regular hot dogs and Dibs are only $2 each during the marathon.
* Also Cinemark appears to sell a refillable drink cup and popcorn bucket that can be used on multiple trips to the theater at a $1 a refill. I think this is a fabulous idea that I would love to take advantage of at our local theaters.
* Cinemark has the $1 kids movies during the summer a la Regal but they offer the purchase of a ten pack of tickets for it at the discounted price of $5
* Cinemark has weekly coupons, Seniors day, Family day, and several other consumer friendly programs. Other cinemas could definitely learn a few things from them.
