Academy Cinemas

LinkSo, LA is on fire, and the SGV is filled with smoke in addition to being 100 or so stifling degrees. Escapism at the movies has a whole new meaning! And, with the Academy Cinemas in Pasadena close by, it can also be a bargain. The Academy is a second-run theatre, so you won't see this week's blockbuster. And, you won't be nurtured in plush stadium seating. What you will get is movies for $2 or $3, depending on the starting times, and hot dogs for $1. True, the sight lines are off, the seating configurations are a bit weird and the screens aren't always centered, but who cares for $2? I saw Up and Public Enemies, had two hotdogs and a jumbo refillable root beer -- all for less than $10. The air conditioning and non-particulate filled air was worth that alone!
