Veterans Day began in 1919 following the signing of the Armistice that ended World War I. President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed the first Veterans Day or Armistice Day on November, 11, 1919, as a day for America to "reflect on the heroism of those who died for or country's service". In 1954, Armistice Day was expanded from a remembrance of World War I Veterans to a day for which to recognize and celebrate ALL Veterans who have bravely served our country.

Hope to see you downtown this Thursday to showing your support and thanks for our local Veterans.

365 Things to do in Bend OR - $3 Movies at McMenamins
Kryste Adams, Bend, Oregon Real Estate (RE/MAX Key Properties - Luxury Homes, Golf Course Homes)

365 Things to do in Bend OR - $3 Movies at McMenamins Old St. Francis School in Downtown Bend.

It definitely feels like fall outside today so our Thing to do in Bend is an inexpensive way to enjoy the movies inside.  McMenamins in Downtown Bend has a lot of fun activities including a pool, live music, a couple bars / restaurants and best of all the Movie Theater!

McMenamins Bend Movie Times

Cost: $3.00 Wednesday - Monday and $2.00 on Tuesdays! (That's right if $3 is too much then $2 Tuesdays should hit the spot.

Location: Downtown Bend on Bond Street

 

McMenamins occupies the Old St. Francis School which was a Catholic school until the 1930's.  The movie theater isn't the only thing worth viewing.  The artwork along the walls and Mosaic tile soaking pool are a must see. If you're visiting Bend the guest rooms and guest houses are in the heart of downtown Bend.

My McMinimens movie watching tips:

  1. Bring cash.  McMenamins prefers you pay the entrance fee in cash.
  2. Arrive early. The seating is great comfy couches and chairs so you'll want to show up early to make sure you find just the right viewing spot, especially if you're traveling with a larger group.
  3. Come hungry!  McMenamins offers a full menu so you can enjoy a movie and a burger too!
  4. Bring mom and dad for a matinee.  McMenamins serves beer, wine and cocktails so minors are allowed only at the matinees with a parent or guardian. 

The movies shown at McMenimens are typically a few weeks to months out of the Regal theaters making McMenimens is a fun inexpensive way to see the movies you missed on the big screen well...on the big screen!  So put a few bucks in your pocket and head on over to McMenamins Old St. Francis School for the Movies, food, beer and fun!
