The votes have been counted, the movies selected, and Pensacola’s Saenger Theatre is set to resume its popular Summer Classic Movie Series on Saturday, July 1.
This is the sixth season for the movie series and this year the ten-week series will see the Saenger screen one classic film each Saturday evening at 7:00 p.m. through September 17.
“Attendance was up again for the fifth year in a row by 12% for last year’s series,” said Kathy Summerlin, Marketing Director for the Saenger Theatre. “I never expected to see close to 1,000 in attendance consistently, but most of that is the overwhelming support of the community and our sponsors.”
Tickets for the Saenger Classic Movie Series will go on sale to the public on Friday, June 9 at 10 a.m. at the Saenger Theatre Box Office located at 22 East Intendencia or on the night of each movie beginning at 6 p.m.
Prices for admission remain at $5.00 per person for general admission seating. Tickets are only available for purchase at the Saenger Theatre Box Office.
