According to the Pines Theater event calendar, we are in for a handful of great movies at even better prices.

I still can't believe there are people that haven't been to the Pines theater since they've done their major remodel, although I can't say much since I didn't see how spectacular it all was until just last year.

Most the time (if not all the time) the movie tickets are only five bucks. You can't get a theater experience for a better price really, and their 2017 lineup is something that deserves some applause.
