It’s true! 50% of your movie ticket price goes directly back to the distributor to pay for film rights. We rely on our Members to make us complete. And we thank them with significant discounts, free popcorn, monthly raffles and so much more. Over the course of a year, you could easily save more than the cost of membership. So don’t wait a moment longer!
