Deadpool at the Kendallville Strand Theater

February 13th, 2016 ·1 Comment

I just dropped my grandson off at the Strand Theater here in town. He’s seeing Deadpool, which probably isn’t my cup of tea, but then we both like Casablanca and classic movies, so it’s not like we can’t talk about anything.

It’s kind of ironic because just a couple of days ago I was telling someone about the old-fashioned, but clean and renovated theater we have here, thanks to Bruce Babbitt. I interviewed him a long time ago and, he really deserves the town’s thanks.

Matinee prices are $3 – and for the evening shows, the price is $4.50. The Martian was here soon after it came out. Star Wars was here when it opened. Did I mention my grandson wore Star Wars themed pants to stand in line for the movie?

Popcorn refills are 75 cents; I think pop refills are a quarter. YOU CANNOT BEAT HIS PRICES.

There are times when people do not realize how lucky they are in the smaller things in life.

Bigger city movie multiples may have lots of bells and whistles, but the Strand is an example of America at its best.

    When we lived in New Mexico our local movie theater would open five minutes before the show and if at least six people didn’t show up they would refund your money and not do the show. They bagged their own candy and had 3/4 of the theater roped off but they were a great place. Clean and cheap. Now where we are in TX we have a smaller home town theater that has kept their prices low and have great service. They recently renovated and we expected higher prices but they have kept them at $6, which compared to the $17 at the other theater (yes, $17!!!!) it is a steal.
