Kimball Theatre Presents Special “Movie Nights” for Good Neighbors and W&M Students in February
Colonial Williamsburg’s Kimball Theatre is offering Good Neighbors and students at the College of William and Mary their own special movie nights in February.
Each Monday in February, all holders of valid Good Neighbor passes receive a free small soft drink and popcorn with the purchase of a $5 admission ticket.
Each Tuesday in February, all William and Mary students with a valid student ID receive a free small soft drink and popcorn with the purchase of a $5 admission ticket.
Students must present a valid ID, and Good Neighbors must present a current Good Neighbor pass. The offer is valid for regularly scheduled films showing in the auditorium and the screening room and is not valid for festival films or special events. The offer is for tickets purchased onsite at the Kimball Theatre only.
Located in Merchants Square, the 410-seat Kimball Theatre is home to current films and live performances. On any given day, visitors might see a Colonial Williamsburg interpreter portray Patrick Henry or a jazz ensemble of talented students from the College of William and Mary. Perhaps the Peninsula's Jewish Film Festival is in town, or players performing an 18th-century Grand Medley of Entertainments. The Kimball Theatre is at the center of Williamsburg's community activities. Creative programming alliances with the College of William and Mary, community organizations, and Colonial Williamsburg link the past with the present.
Colonial Williamsburg’s first benefactor, John D. Rockefeller Jr., intended the theater to be like those in New York, showing exciting releases, able to accommodate local needs and to be a welcome stop for any visitor. Today, the beautifully restored Kimball Theatre continues the Rockefeller tradition by showing films, live shows, musical concerts, and special programs for the college and community at large.
