One of the things I love about summer is that it is the season of blockbuster film releases. From Indiana Jones to HellBoy II, the Dark Knight to Iron Man, this summer has seen its share of thrilling action movies. There is nothing like walking down a carpeted hallway with ticket in hand, gawking at upcoming movie posters on the wall, and searching for your theater with an acute sense of anticipation. But if you are bored with going to the same old venue again and again or you're feeling the crunch of a $9.75 movie ticket, I have some suggestions for you to breathe excitement into your summer movie-watching.
For a change from the normal movieplex awash with a sea of people and spilled popcorn, I would like to recommend the Highland Park Theatre at
Another theater that I enjoy is not necessarily about the ambiance, but about value. The Buffalo Grove Theaters at
Last but not least among my suggestions is the special program run by Arlington Theaters at
It doesn’t take a lot of effort to add value to your movie-going experience. Enjoy the silver screen!
