Say goodbye to the Five Buck Club

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

The era of the five-buck movie is over, at least at Chicago's remaining Kerasotes...er, AMC...er, Regal Cinemas.

See, back in January, Kerasotes announced that it would be selling most of its theaters to AMC. Some wondered how this would change the experience at the theaters -- most importantly, what would become of the popular Five Buck Club, which allowed registered users to attend select movies for just a Lincoln. Well, now we know.

AMC subsequently sold two Chicago locations -- City North 14 (2600 N. Western) and Webster Place (1471 W. Webster) -- to Regal Cinemas, which will not be continuing the promotion, according to an email from Tony Kerasotes to current Club members. Regal assumes operation of these cinemas tomorrow, May 25, so you may be able to sneak in one more cheap viewing if you're desperate.
