Brew and View at the Vic Theatre
People like movies. People like alcohol. The geniuses at the Brew and View put their heads together, figured out how to combine the two, and made it work. Showing triple features of just-off-first-run movies, and then allowing people to getting stinking drunk while they watch, the Brew and View stays crowded. Thursdays are an especially busy night, when buying a cup for two dollars lends you access to $1 draft beer all night. If you’re hoping to actually watch a film at the Brew and View, good luck, since the crowds can get a little boisterous toward the start of the second movie. But the fun isn’t so much in the watching of the movie, but in the watching the people watching the movie.
