CHATTANOOGA Tenn. (UTC/The Loop)– It’s no secret the economy is taking its toll on everyone, but this is especially true for the college students. Between tuition, books, parking passes, lab fees, and all the other 1000’s of ways we pay, there is no money left for students to have a “college experience” and a social life.
As crazy as it might sound there are ways to have a good time out in Chattanooga without sending your bank account into the ER for mouth to mouth. One of the best places that students can go to in Chattanooga is the Regal Hamilton Place 10-17 theaters.
The movies are a traditional place to go and hang out, but most of the time it would cost students three weeks’ worth of their plasma to pay for a good time. Not at Regal. The theater offers concession stand and ticket price specials three days a week, as well as three dollar tickets at all other time.
According to the Hamilton County Herald the specials are:
- One dollar feature candies on Mondays (with a Regal Plus Membership)
- One dollar small popcorn on Tuesdays (with a Regal Plus Membership)
- One dollar tickets on Wednesdays (with a Regal Plus Membership)
“I love coming to the cheapies,” Wes Hale, a sophomore from Chattanooga said. “It’s nice to get away from campus and all the responsibilities that we [as students] have to deal with all the time. I love bringing my girlfriend here so we can get out of the house for a few hours and see a good movie for cheap.”
The theater is located in the 2000 Hamilton Place Blvd off of Interstate 24. Regal shows second run movies and has showings until ten every night. Show times and movie selection can be found here.
“This movie theater is great to come to when I don’t have a lot of money,” Hale said. “I hope to see the cheapies stay around forever.”
