Just ordered a pair of yearly “Power Passes” for our local IMAX theatre for Doug and me.
We were going to do this LAST year, but found out about it too far into the year to make it a decent deal (they run from purchase date to end of calendar year NOT a year from the date you purchase them), so said we’d look into getting them in January of this year. Which is here.
It’s a nice deal. For $45, you get:
- Admission to documentary films at no charge (ticket required)
- Admission to feature films for only $5
- Advance ticket sales and advance seating for all films
- Online ticketing with no additional fees (three days advance purchase required)
- Invitations to special screenings
- Discounts on IMAX special events and IMAX birthday parties
Birthday parties no big deal, but for the rest of it, when you consider that most Feature Films are $12, and the Documentaries are $9, that’s a nice savings right there, since those will be only $5 and $free respectively. We’ve seen the Advance Seating in action the last time we were there, that’s a pretty sweet deal (no more sitting 2nd row for Avatar! :-O, it took hours to work out the kink in my neck after sitting that long for that). And since I tend to buy our tickets online, in advance, avoiding those handling fees is a nice plus too.
And Doug says it’ll be a good year for the feature films, since the Batman sequel is coming out this summer, as well as Spiderman. And *squee!* they brought back Hubble 3D, which I missed when they had it there before, REALLY want to see that on the big screen in 3D, which since it’s a documentary, will now be FREE! *does happy dance*
All in all a pretty good deal. We just have to go and get a photo ID taken before we go see our first movie, and we’re good to go. Nice.
And on a totally unrelated note, I’ve been meaning to post this video in my blog since I first saw it, so I don’t have to keep going to YouTube or Twitter to find it, but yeah, for some reason, I really REALLY like this video. 😀
Still don’t know how I never saw it over the Christmas holidays (I’m sure I would have REMEMBERED this one! LOL) but found it en route to looking for Geico Maxwell’s new Ziplining video, so including it here now, just because. “Yee-hee!” 😀
