Indie Ogden Review: Cine Pointe 6–Family Fun, Budget-style


Have you ever been dying to get out of the house and see a movie, then checked your wallet and decided the plan was a no go? An evening movie, plus reasonable snacks (shared popcorn & drinks for all) runs my family of six close to $100! Even at a matinée price of $6.75, movie dates for us all were few and far between.

Then came the Cine Pointe 6.


Located just East  of Wall in 12th street (151 E 12th street, to be exact), the Cine Pointe 6 brought more frequent movies back to my family. I just can’t say enough good about this theater! It’s clean, well-lit, and safe (something that’s not always true of second-run theaters), the staff is friendly and well-trained, and the prices are affordable. Tickets for ‘regular’ movies are just $3.00 ($2.00 for seniors), while 3D movies are $5.00–if I have a spare $20 lying around, we can all go to the movies! Concessions are affordable, too (and we know that’s where theaters REALLY get you!), and they offer a variety of goodies: popcorn, candy, nachos, hot dogs, pickles. One of the best values around is their movie Sipper–buy the large mug once for around $4.00, and you can refill it each time you return for $1.50! Up until recently, Cine Pointe 6 boasted “The Best Popcorn in Town”, and it was–fresh, crisp, and covered in real butter (if that’s the way you like popcorn) instead of butter-flavored oil. Unfortunately, the last time I went to the Cine Pointe, the real butter was no more. Here’s hoping they bring it back!

In addition to their regular fabbo prices, Cine Pointe 6 offers special ‘value nights (after 4pm): Monday is “Family Night”, with $10.00 admission for up to 6 people (!); Tuesday is “Two for Tuesday”, admission for a couple is $3.00; Wednesday is “Teachers, Police, and Firefighter’s Night”-admission $1.50, with ID; Thursday is “Military & Federal Employee night”-$1.50, with ID. They accept all major credit and debit cards, too!

As mentioned above, this is a second run theater, so they don’t have the newest movies on the day they come out–sometimes it takes from a few weeks to a couple of months before a movie makes it to the Cine Pointe 6. Most movies come to the theater surprisingly quickly, though!

If seeing a movie is in your plans (and you don’t’ care if it’s a few weeks since release), you have to check out the Cine Pointe 6!

Bookie, foodie, java-ee, win-ee…yeah, that’s me. I’m crazy about hiking and gardening, and am passionate about real food, supporting my local community, and raising kind, responsible kids. Wanna talk about movies, music, comics? I’m your woman!
