I have a local $1 where I live and it usually plays movies that are on Blu-ray. But you can go to the movies and get a full movie experience for $1. My wife and I usually got and we bring our own popcorn, candy, and pop and we have a great time for around $20. Because we buy our popcorn, candy, and pop from the $1 before we get there. P.S. If you go to the regular movie theater here your looking at $30~$40 a night because you can't really bring stuff in. And you're not supposed to bring stuff in the $1 show but they don't really care and they don't enforce it.
