Celebrate the 2012 Oscars with dinner and a movie — on me.Posted by Donna Freedman on Feb 17, 2012 | 160 comments
Whenever I offer free movie tickets there’s a lot of interest. I can only infer that the tighter economy has led a lot of people to cut back on entertainment.
This week you’ll get both dinner and a movie in time for the Feb. 26 Academy Awards. Even if you don’t go see a nominated picture, you’ll be hitting the theater for free. If you play your cards right, you’ll be hitting the theater more than once.
That’s because the AMC Theatres gift card is for $25. See the first show of the day and you might get as many as four admissions. (It’s $6 a pop here in Seattle. How about in your neighborhood?) Or go once, with your sweetie, and use the remainder of the card’s worth for popcorn.
That is, if you’re still hungry after spending the $25 Restaurant.com gift card that’s the other half of this prize package. It may not be enough to feed you, depending on how fancy-schmancy a restaurant you choose. But it’s a start.
Then again, it might be more than enough. I took a $25 Restaurant.com card to Zayda Buddy’s down in Ballard and not only got filled up, but also took home a bunch of leftover Minnesota-style pizza for the freezer.
