I love the Brew & View. I love the concept (big screen movies + food + beer = fun) and I love the execution (cheap beer, cheap tickets and great atmosphere, especially once everyone’s buzzed). This is a great group outing, especially if you’re seeing a movie that encourages audience participation and/or is raunchily fun to watch (think “American Pie” or some variant thereof). It’s also one of the few movie places where you can talk back to the screen and not get yelled at. The only negative is that they generally show “new” movies only after they’ve been in other theaters for a while—but it’s hard to complain about that when the cost of entry is rather low. Moreover, if you get there early, you’ll get to catch two or three different movies (generally at 8 p.m., 10 p.m. and midnight)—it’s a great price bargain overall. A secret tip for those strapped for cash: Now I’ve never done this … but in theory you could sneak in some hard liquor in a flask and get drunk/enjoy the movies in a more cost-efficient manner.
