If you're looking for something to do this Labor Day weekend that won't break the bank and that the whole family will enjoy head to the movies! Typically Labor Day weekend is slow at theaters so the Cinema Foundation decided to offer a special discount on tickets in celebration of National Cinema Day.
Theaters all across the country will be doing $3.00 movie tickets this Saturday, September 3rd (09-03-22) including the AMC Patriot 13 Theatre in Lawton. So no matter where you're at there should be a theater near you that's doing the $3.00 movie ticket deal. So far AMC Theatres, Regal Cinemas, Cinemark Theatres, and even privately owned theaters are all set to celebrate National Cinema Day with discounted $3.00 tickets!
Not all theatres will be doing the special ticket offer, but most will. It wouldn't hurt to call ahead or check the website or Facebook to see if the theater nearest you is doing the $3.00 ticket deal before you head that way, just to be safe. Normally with all the cookouts and other things going on during Labor Day weekend, I skip the theaters. However, this year I'm thinking it would be the perfect place to go after the cookout and BBQ!
There are some really good movies showing this weekend in theaters. Not only that the special $3.00 movie ticket deal is good for all showings and formats at most theaters. The Lawton AMC Patriot 13 Theatre will be showing: Beast, Elvis, Minions: The Rise of Gru, DC League of Super Pets, Nope, Bullet Train, and more!
For show times and other movies that will be showing this Saturday (09-03-22) visit the official AMC Patriot 13 Theatre website, or you can check them out on Facebook. Hope you have a great Labor Day weekend whatever your plans, whoever you're with and a happy National Cinema Day, looking forward to it!
John Wayne: An American Experience museum Ft. Worth, TX.
If you're a fan of the Duke you have to make the trip to Ft. Worth and visit the John Wayne: An American Experience
museum. It's located in the Ft. Worth Stockyards at 2501 Rodeo Plaza. The gallery below isn't even close to half of what you'll see there. With 10,000 square feet and several rooms, the exhibit has everything from John Wayne's early childhood to his final days. You can get up close and personal with all the costumes, wardrobe, and props that John Wayne used in his films and throughout his career. Along with all the great displays throughout the exhibit, there are quotes from the Duke, interactive video and audio sections, and most, if not all of the walls are covered in photo murals and picture collages of the Duke.

When they were named, more than likely years ago, I'm sure no one thought they would be considered crazy or funny at the time. Well, times have changed!
