Raised prices at both theatres and also raised the senior age at another from 60 to 64. Heard a few queaks at the senior thing but we had a card for them "I was old and now I am young again!" Good for 6 months. If they live that long.
Also added a 4.50 bargain night. Anyway: while I was on the latest trip to Las Vegas Delta changed two bags to one bag with a 25.00 flat fee . Bottom line: you have to charge enough to stay even and then some. Everytime I raise prices I feel I should have done it six months earlier.

two theatres: one is Thursday night: Last chance!

the other is Monday night.

In any event it will pull some but in that case it may peel off some who'd come at turn away nights?

Oh well. It was a chance to throw the cheapskates a bone.

Last time I asked about a bargin night I was told cetain film co's had it in the master agreement that we could not do it. So that kind of killed the whole thing.

Please post if anyone cares or if you checked.
