St. Clair 10 Cine is bringing $3 pricing to movie-goers, plus $1.50 shows on Tuesdays.
Starting Friday, August 26, all films at St. Clair 10 Cine will be $3 a ticket. The cine is switching to a second-run theatre bringing back films guests may have missed or simply want to enjoy again.
During the week, they'll offer an even better deal with HOT Tickets. "HOT" stands for Half Off Tuesdays. All tickets every Tuesday are just $1.50.

X-Men: First Class (PG-13)
Mr. Popper's Penguins (PG)
Kung Fu Panda 2 (PG)

Actually, Wehrenberg started a discount policy at the St. Clair 10 several months ago, but it was still a first-run house, I believe.
This theater has had its share of bad press the last several years. There have been several incidents, some of which involved fights...and now this happens. Could this be the next Wehrenberg theater to shut down?
For that matter, I'm a little surprised Wehrenberg didn't use this kind of policy at the Kenrick 8 before they closed it.
