Two tickets and popcorn for $9.50

Cold, snowy temperatures make a great cozy Saturday at St. Joseph's Indian School.

Snow on the ground, overcast skies and a cold and grey day made for lots of yawns for everyone I came across today.

But it was no lazy Saturday because eight of our student families were on campus for our FAST (Families And Schools Together) weekend. I met a few of the parents and guardians I hadn’t yet met, and said hello to some very familiar faces of those who have sent several of their family through our program.

Our high school girls took care of babysitting for the younger children and served the lunch as well. It was a chance for them to earn some spending money, but also help free the staff to have more quality interaction with the families.

Fr. Anthony and I saw a matinée at the Chamberlain Movie Theater this afternoon. It’s nice that our small town is still able to support a movie theater. While we may have to wait a couple of weeks for a movie to come out, my friends in the cities are always envious of the prices. For two tickets and two bags of popcorn I paid $9.50!

  1. $9.50 would get you admission here in Texas…not only do you see good movies, but you get a good deal! Another reason to love Chamberlain!
