Love is in the air all February long. Couples looking for entertaining dates—without a hefty price tag—check out these date night delights in this week’s Cheap Weekly.
Tucked away just a block west of Ogden Junction, Moviegrille is a cinema experience unlike any other. The food menu is likened to a casual restaurant, complete with burgers, salads and artisan pizzas. Moviegrille is more of a restaurant inside a movie theater. Servers take your order before the movie begins and bring it right to your seat when it’s ready.
Offering cozy reclining seats and an intimate theater setting, it’s almost hard to believe the modest admission price. Couples who book online can enjoy a movie for two for a total of $3 on Tuesdays. Wednesday is date night at Moviegrille—two movie tickets, two drinks and a large popcorn for $15. If you’re looking for a bargain that works any day of the week, look to the current Moviegrille Groupon deal, which offers two movie tickets and a small popcorn for only $7.
Located on Ogden’s Historic 25th street, Wiseguys Comedy Club is the perfect place for couples looking for a cheap laugh.
