College Night at Aksarben Cinema

You’ve crammed for that Biology exam, obsessively written that English paper, and feel totally prepared for your speech in Public Speaking. Don’t you think you deserve a break? We certainly do.

At Aksarben Cinema every Thursday is College Night. That means discounts and great movies for you, while you take a brief break from the hectic college student lifestyle.

You might wonder what could they possibly offer me to make it worth the break. How about $2 small pops or sodas (if you’re from the South), $2 popcorn with all the butter you could ask for, and $2 hot dogs, and $3 Bud Light draws with a Premiere ticket purchase using your student ID.

Just so you know, a Premiere ticket is a ticket for any movie that is opening this weekend. Luckily for you, we’ve got some great movies coming your way including London Has Fallen, Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, and Zootopia.

If you loved Olympus Has Fallen then we’re certain that you’ll enjoy the sequel London Has Fallen, which continues the thrilling adventure of Gerard Butler’s character, Mike Banning, as he is tasked with protecting the president, Aaron Eckhart, and more world leaders. This is the movie that critics are calling “pumped up,” “extreme,” and “brutal.”

However, if you’re looking for something a little lighter then we suggest you see Tina Fey’s latest film, Whiskey Tango Foxtrot. In it Fey plays a journalist who comically recounts her wartime coverage in Afghanistan and Pakistan, and along for the ride are other Hollywood heavyweights including Margot Robbie, Martin Freeman, Alfred Molina, and Billy Bob Thornton. The reviews are already out and critics are calling Fey’s follow-up to Sisters, “enjoyable,” “a triumph,” and “smart.”

Finally, who doesn’t love a delightful animated movie to take the weight off your shoulders for an engaging hour and forty-eight minute runtime. That’s the perfect amount of time to have some laughs with Disney Animation’s Zootopia, which tells the story of a fugitive con-artist fox and a rookie bunny cop who must work together to solve an important case. The critics are raving about this one. Richard Roeper of the Chicago Sun-Times had this to say, “Zootopia is one of my favorite animated movies. Not one of my favorite animated movies of the last year or two, or of the last decade, or in recent memory. It's one of my favorite animated movies, period.”

So make tonight College Night with all these great new movies and discount prices! See you at the movies!
