Victoria Theatre Association Screens GREAT ESCAPE, 7/20-22

Victoria Theatre Association invites you to escape the heat in the cool Victoria Theatre with THE GREAT ESCAPE July 20 – 22, 2012 as part of the 2012 Cool Films Series.

THE GREAT ESCAPE is an exhilarating drama, based on real life experience by Paul Brickhill, and stars movie daredevil Steve McQueen along with James Garner and Richard Attenborough.  Action-packed motorcycle chases and daring escape attempts, THE GREAT ESCAPE is sure to keep you on The Edge of your seat!

What's the best part about the 2012 Cool Films Series (besides FREE popcorn and soda)? Tickets are just $5 each, or $28 for a 10-ticket passbook for passbook subscribers – a great entertainment bargain during a year when gas prices have been hovering near $4 per gallon!

Passbooks are on sale now through Ticket Center Stage, located in the Wintergarden of the Benjamin & Marian Schuster Performing Arts Center. Passbook and individual show tickets may be purchased by phone at (937) 228-3630 or toll free (888) 228-3630, or online at – click on Victoria Theatre Association, then Cool Films Series.

Tickets are also available day-of-show at Ticket Center Stage Box Office at the Victoria Theatre, beginning one hour prior to showtime. Films are shown at 7:30 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, and 3 p.m. on Sundays in the Victoria Theatre. Recreating the feel of the old-time movie palaces, guests may enjoy free popcorn and soda in the lobby beginning one hour prior to showtime, a Mighty Wurlitzer organ concert beginning 30 minutes prior to showtime, and a classic cartoon just before the movie.

Presenting sponsor for the 2012 Cool Films Series is Freund, Freeze and Arnold.

Sunday Matinee Special!

As if free popcorn and soda were not enough, Go Cupcake's Cupcake Truck will make an appearance one hour before the Sunday 2 pm matinee. Go Cupcake's scrumptious cupcakes will be available for purchase starting at $2.50 per cupcake and come in a variety of flavors.
