Movie Night—2nd Tuesday of the Month

Movie Night—2nd Tuesday of the Month

Come join us for Movie Night on the second Tuesday of each month. First, we meet at 5PM at Saratoga Stadium, 389 Broadway, Saratoga Springs.  NOTE: This is Stadium on Broadway we are no longer at Harvey's. Arrive when you can for a cocktail, appetizer, dinner. If you can't arrive right at 5PM and want to order something quick, stop in anyway. The Stadium is big enough for the group to grow as people arrive. At dinner, we decide who wants to see what movie and leave according to showtime. We then walk to the Bow Tie Criterion Cinemas on Railroad for a $6 movie!

Parking: If you park close to the cinema, such as the parking garage on Church and Woodlawn, it's an easy walk to the Stadium and back to the cinema.

Bow Tie has $6 ticket specials on Tuesday (unless you choose the BTX theater movie which is an additional $3 for a total of $9). They also have $5 large popcorn with self-serve real butter. (FYI, the medium popcorn is more than $5!)
