The Office of Student Activities just made a night out less expensive.
The Anthony Wayne Movie Theater is an affordable means of entertainment for students at Cabrini College. Tickets are only $2 when purchased at the Office of Student Activities, located next to Jazzman’s.
Obtaining these tickets is a simple and easy process. Students just need to stop by, show their student identification, pay and pick up the tickets.
“OSA thought about what we could do for students that would be low cost and they could do on any night of the week. We decided on the theater tickets because we aren’t able to plan an event every single night of the week so this is a way for students to be able to do something on any given night of the week,” Ashley Shoenfelt, director of student activities, said.
Five hundred tickets are purchased each semester by the Office of Student Activities. When tickets run out more are not purchased until next semester, Shoenfelt said.
The students are taking more advantage of this money-saving opportunity since its start in the fall 2006 semester.
The affordable price is not the only advantage. The theater, located on West Lancaster Ave. is less than two miles from campus. This perk can help save on gas. Students can even walk there if they wish.
The theater’s atmosphere is laid back.
“It’s cute and it’s quaint and it’s cozy. It’s very tiny, but I like that it’s tiny,” Amanda Stout, a senior communications major, said.
The theater is close and cheap but the amount of showings is limited. There is an average of five different pictures shown a week.
Other more expensive theaters can hold up to 20 pictures or more and include more showings.
Transportation is the main reasoning for the school providing the discounted tickets at the Wayne Theater. The school’s shuttle has a route to Wayne and it allows students to familiarize themselves with that surrounding area.
The price of movie tickets continues to soar. It costs $9.50 for adults to see an evening show and $7.25 to see a matinee at the Anthony Wayne Theater.
Cabrini students are able to see any movie at any time for the flat rate of $2. The days of trying to make that early show and picking a movie that is valid with discount tickets just to save a few dollars are over.
