Ever since the quarantine started, FilmBar has faced many challenges just like many other theaters. But most importantly, their regulars have also deeply missed the amazing nights spent at FilmBar. And that is why FilmBar now offers a newly-updated rental option: for as little as $125, you and your BFFs can rent the entire cinema for a two-hour block — if you did not know, this service used to cost $500!
The rental comes with a staffed bar that provides wine, craft beer, and cocktails. You will also have access to the classic popcorn and a variety of candies. You can literally watch whatever you want without worrying about another audience kicking your seat, or someone’s kid suddenly starts to cry.
The only restriction? Make sure you are wearing a mask when you are in the lobby and the restroom.
If you still feel leery about going out, there is another way you can gain access to FilmBar’s mind-blowing selection of movies and supporting them at the same timeFilmBar now has an online streaming service that allows you to choose from anything they have available. Every Friday, you can pick from one of their virtual films and pick up a bottle of wine and some steamy pizza from their next-door business friends who decided to join forces with FilmBar and treat yourself with something more unique.
