Holiday Gift Guide: Spectrum passes

Spectrum Tickets.JPG

Just add popcorn (with real butter).

'Tis the season and all that, so chances are you're doing a little holiday shopping.

If you're looking for something cool and you want to shop local, the AOA elves have pulled together a few fun holiday gifts that come from right here in the Capital Region.

Day 1: the gift of film

What?
Movie passes for The Spectrum.

Because winter is long and cold and The Spectrum is a the kind of place where we'd like to wait it out with good movies and mint brownies.

Also because Oscar season is on the way.

Wrap them up with a Spectrum T-Shirt and throw in a mint brownie to complete the effect.

Who is it for?
Anyone who loves movies (obviously). It's also good for people who enjoy going out but aren't really into "stuff."

Where can you get it?
You can pick them up right at The Spectrum (where you can now pay for them with your credit card). If you're not going to be in the neighborhood you can also get them online, but expect to pay a small handling fee (.50 for the individual tickets and $2.00 for the 10 pack),

How much?
Single passes are $8.75 each.
Senior single passes are $7.00 each.
The 10 ticket subscription card is $70.00.

Also try:
If you know someone who is more into books than movies, a gift certificate
to Dove and Hudson or The Book House or Market Block might be an
alternative. Pair those with a pound of coffee from Uncommon Grounds
or Tea from The Good Leaf and some cookies and you've got a great gift.

I almost always wind up receiving these as a gift for Christmas, and I think it's one of the best ideas ever . . . it would be even better if someone would also include one of those delicious mint brownies!

Don't forget about the Madison. Also still independently owned I do believe.

The last I checked Madison is still independently owned. A great place for a weekend matinee of a more mainstream movie. I love going there and to the Spectrum.

The hoopla about American Pharoah coming to Saratoga is so over-the-top, you would think he was dragging a Wegmans behind him.
