    Double or Triple features for $5. Can't beat the movie price. I just wish they had better beer prices. 6 or 7 bucks is too much for an old movie house that rarely gets crowded.

    I've been to some amazing concerts here. It's nice that there's a ton of seating on the balcony, though it means the fairly small floor can be horribly over-packed. Practically next to the L.

    Hang by the lighting booth. Perfect sight lines, room to move, near the bar and near the sound guy for best results.

    Alternately a music venue and a movie theater, this celebrated locale is the perfect place to catch touring artists or enjoy a few beers during rowdy screenings of second-run and classic movies. Read more

    If you are a short person like me, head upstairs for a seat and a better view. If there isn't a show, check out Brew and View. Cheap beer, cheaper movies, and one of the cheapest date ideas around.

    Some of the bars accept credit cards, but they place a $100 hold on your account, so watch out if you're lowish on funds.
