    The seats are old and falling apart and the sound goes in and out, but you can't beat the price. There's a chain of second run theatres here in Portland that serve beer and pizza. This week, I watched "Zack and Miri Make a Porno", "Happy Go Lucky", and "Role Models" for $3 each. Anyone else?

    Nothing like that around me that I know of, I wish there was. There is a theater that shows all "indie" movies though or movies that aren't shown @ the major theaters (Edwards/Regal).

    We don't have anything like this around me, which is pretty disappointing because I'd love to have a place to check out movies a little later on for cheap.

    We have a chain of them here in KC and it is $2 a movie. They basically went in and opened all the old theaters that closed and only have like 6-8 screens before they had these 20-30 screen theaters.

    "Indie" movie theater here is a real quality place, picture quality and seating is great but the price is outrageous.

    My parents work at an old old theater, one screen, cheap movies....it does well for the town it is in.
