REEL WOMEN MOVIE CLUB MEETING, this THURSDAY, JULY 24th, 7 PM!
Ladies, get on down here and sign up, or join in the fun! It’s what all of the well-connected ladies of Vernon are talking about!

Holy Bat-Attendance!
Welcome back, everyone, to the Vernon Plaza Theater! Nice to have seen all’a y’all this past weekend! Thank you for making The Dark Knight our most successful film of the summer! And, if you’re like the rest of us, and you were blown away by the movie, we’re going to keep it for two more weeks. Look for some special events connected with Batman this weekend and next! And hey, how about that little fifteen minute Batman Fun Film before the show, huh? It all adds up to a much cooler theater experience than you can ever get in Wichita Falls.

It’s a Hellboy Marathon!
This Monday, July 28th, starting at 1 PM, you can catch the first Hellboy movie, along with two animated Hellboy movies, as well as Hellboy II! That’s seven hours of Monster-Punching Goodness! And it’s all PG/PG-13, so here’s your chance to spend a little quality time at the good old Vernon Plaza Theater.

Batmania is Upon Us!
I know that for some of the younger folks, a two and a half hour crime drama is not their idea of Batman. Well, don’t fret, folks. This Saturday, July 26th!, we’re going to have an all ages friendly Batman party here at the Plaza! It’s BATMANIA! Starting at 10 AM, it’s everything you need to get back to your bat-roots.

Yoo hoooo? Vernon? Where did you go?!
Citizens of Vernon, the time is NOW. You need to decide, once and for all, where your loyalties lie. We’re here, doing our best to make Vernon better as a community. That’s our part. Your part is in supporting the people in town (not just us) who are trying to re-invigorate Vernon and bring it back to life again. ALL of the local businesses need your support right now. We need feedback from you in order to better serve you, and we need the chance to improve in order to make things better. We can’t do any of that if you folks aren’t willing to help us with your patronage. It’s time for those of you who live here to start actively looking locally for the things you used to go to Wichita Falls for. If you don’t do that, then we are lost as a community.

Summer Movies Everywhere!
Hey everyone, look out! The summer movies are coming so fast, we’re going to stack them for you! That’s right, Starting Tuesday, July 1st, we’ll be showing an exclusive sneak preview of the new Will Smith movie, HANCOCK! Oh, this is gonna be good, folks, and it really sets up our July Super Explosivo-Festival: From July 1st to the end of the month, it’s nothing but things that blow up and the super heroes who walk unscathed through the debris. Ya Gotta Love Summer!

Look for a SECOND Update this weekend, once we get Hancock in house, to let you know about Next Week’s schedule–a full week of Will Smith and WALL-E! Who loves ya, baby?

Gas is too high! Carpool!
With a family-friendly, G-Rated Disney/Pixar film opening this weekend, it’s natural that you’re going to want to bring the kids to the movies. But hey, don’t stop there. Grab some of the neighbor’s kids, as well. Stack the little darlings up like cordwood in the back of your SUV and split the cost of gas. It’s the perfect way to stay cool in the Summer heat, give the kids a treat, and keep everyone entertained without having to drop forty bucks on a tank of gas JUST to drive to Wichita Falls and back!

SAVE THE HULK FOR VERNON!
The Vernon Plaza Theater WILL be showing the new Marvel movie, The Incredible Hulk. Unfortunately, Universal Studios won’t let us open the film in Vernon. That’s why we need YOUR help! We want to show Universal that Vernon CAN open blockbuster movies, and the only way to do that is to NOT go see them in Wichita Falls. We’d like you to pledge that you’re only going to see The Incredible Hulk at the Vernon Plaza Theater. If we can put up a big number for Universal, then they will let us open future movies, like the upcoming Hellboy II: The Golden Army. Don’t worry; we’ll make it worth your while. We’ll throw the big Hulk party that we were planning on doing, with lots of freebies, drawings, t-shirts, merchandise, and more. All you gotta do is hold off a couple of weeks, and we’ll blow the roof off of this place! Wait, maybe that was a bad choice of words…

Loot! Glorious Loot!
You’ve got to swing by the Concession Stand on your way in or out of the theater and take a look at some of the toys, graphic novels, cards, and games that we’re stocking. There’s nothing but good stuff there, folks, and if you don’t believe me, you can ask Mark whenever he’s around and he’ll tell you exactly why it’s all so cool! Be sure to sneak a peek at the new Batman HeroClix game–it’s awesome!
