Cheap Date

There’s still a little time to take advantage of a date-night steal: The Downtown Springfield Association’s Dinner and a Movie.

DISCLAIMER: The information in this article was fact checked and accurate at press time, but 417 Magazine cannot guarantee its accuracy indefinitely.

Date night can get pretty spendy these days. Opt for a restaurant without a drive-thru, throw in a movie and some popcorn and a person could easily wind up needing a payday loan.

Fortunately, the Downtown Springfield Association is once again providing some monetary relief with its Dinner and a Movie program. Just dine at any of the participating restaurants downtown (see below) and, for every entrée ordered, get a movie ticket to Hollywood Theatres or the Moxie Cinema for just $5. (That’s nearly half-price.)

There’s not a lot of fine print with this deal. You simply order tickets when ordering dinner. They’re good for any feature or matinee, although there is a $3 up-charge for 3D pictures. It’s a good idea to make sure your restaurant has tickets in stock before being seated. The first couple of times this program was offered, 15,000 people took advantage of it, so there is the possibility a business could sell out.

It may sound like the perfect date but, obviously, no program can guarantee the evening will go off without a hitch. Maybe over dinner it becomes obvious there’s absolutely no chance of a love connection and, in fact, the evening can’t end soon enough. Or, maybe the babysitter calls and the kids have glued themselves to the wall. No worries. You don’t have to see a movie that night. Moxie tickets are good for a year, and the Hollywood Theatres tickets don’t expire at all.

There’s not a lot of time left for the Dinner and a Movie discount. The last night for the program is February 15. But the good news is that it lasts long enough to get you through Valentine’s Day. That’s one date night which should definitely be on the calendar.
