Molly and Selena: Like most long-term travelers, we’re always on the lookout for a bargain – which is why we practically passed out from joy when we discovered the Silver Screen Theater-Café in Pensacola, FL.

The independently owned four-screen theater shows first-run films daily, serves up both movie theater fare and heartier fast food entries, and offers café-style viewing with tables and big cushy chairs.

We caught Valkyrie while munching on popcorn shrimp and cheeseburgers. Admittedly, the food is nothing to blog about, but the grand total for our evening certainly is: $10. $10! That barely covers the cost of an evening movie ticket in most major cities.

When we asked why – and how? – the theater keeps its costs so economical, the cashier simply said it’s because the café is independently owned. Just one more reason we love seeking out the local joints.
