It's no secret that the cost of going to the movies has skyrocketed in recent years, and many of us opt to not get snacks or forgo going altogether because of it. The release of John Wick 3 is creeping up, and so shortly after Avengers and Detective Pikachu - our wallets can't keep up! This Florida drive-in keeps things affordable, and they're screening the new John Wick movie this weekend for super cheap.
Back in 2008, the average price of a movie ticket was only $7.18. Today, the average ticket cost has inflated to approximately $9 to $12, and some fancier theaters will run you even more for a single showing. The Tampa Funlan Drive-In keep their prices low like back in the day, saving you some strain on seeing those highly anticipated new releases - like the upcoming installment of John Wick with Keanu Reeves.
John Wick 3 releases on May 17th and Tampa Funlan will be airing the movie for only $7 per adult ticket - just like back in 2008. You can even bring your own snacks, which will also help keep your movie-going costs down. Order a pizza and pick up your boo or BFF for a date on the cheap or have the best girl's night out with the starry sky backdropping the big screen.
The upcoming film looks like it's going to be a mysterious and adrenaline pumping action flick, featuring Keanu and his signature smize of course. After gunning down a member of a shadowy international assassin's guild -- legendary hit man John Wick finds himself stripped of the organization's protection. With a 14 million dollar bounty hanging over his head, Wick must fight his way through the bustling streets of New York with a target from the world's most ruthless killers on his back.
The description alone paints a gitty-high stakes picture, but the trailer really gets your heart racing. You can see the most recent trailer for John Wick 3 below.
Aside from being an affordable drive-in theater, Tampa Funlan is also a Swap and Shop Flea Market from Thursday through Sunday. You should definitely check it out if you're wanting to make a whole day trip and dig for hidden treasures. You can stock up on local and organic produce, find a cute plant for your new bookshelf, or browse for antiques and unique finds starting at 6 am Thursday & Friday or 5 am on Saturdays and Sundays.
If you're ready for the action-packed John Wick 3: Parabellum, adults can see the film this weekend for only $7 at Tampa Funlan, located at 2302 E. Hillsborough Ave. Tampa, FL 33610; children 5-11 are only $2, and those younger than 5 are free.
