Home Scene Home - Ped Mall Re-Opening Celebrations - Week Four

Oct 15, 1:00pm - Oct 21, 9:30pm

FilmScene118 E College St, Ste 101Iowa City, IA52240 Map

We're excited to fire up the projectors and the popcorn machine at our flagship Ped Mall location.

FABULOUS FILMS, PRIZES AND WINE PAIRINGS

To make things even more festive, we have four straight weekends of marvelous art house new releases, the films you know us for, each paired with a special drink selection. Plus, even though it's our party, we're bringing the prizes. We've got a celebratory themed prize package to give away each Monday to one lucky moviegoer.

For our final week of festivities, we're featuring The Velvet Underground. Directed by acclaimed filmmaker Todd Haynes (Carol), The Velvet Underground shows just how the group became a cultural touchstone representing a range of contradictions: of their time, yet timeless; literary yet realistic; rooted in high art and street culture alike.

Our week four prize package includes a $30 gift card from Record Collector and some FilmScene swag! To enter our giveaway, just visit the FilmScene Ped Mall location anytime between Friday, October 15th and Sunday, October 17th and fill out an entry form. One lucky winner will be drawn on Monday, October 18th!

Week four drink special will be $3 PBR available at the Ped Mall from Friday, October 15th through Thursday, October 21st.

HOME SCENE HOME

It feel just like home, but with some exciting improvements. The lobby has been revitalized to create a more welcoming environment to grab a drink before or after the film. The new laser projector in our original Scene 1 cinema delivers a brighter image, with crisp sound, automated lighting cues and more. And sit back and relax — we have new upgraded seating in both of our Ped Mall cinemas for improved comfort. Your beloved Ped Mall Cinema is better than ever!
