While 2010 may not be the year in mammoth Blockbuster sequels (although there a few rolling out close to 2011), there is sure to be plenty of great genre films to see on the silver screen. For an overview of upcoming horror films, which are sure to be plentiful, check out this article. If you’re looking for a new venue to see these films, look no further.

For moviegoers on a budget that don’t want to compromise quality:
Cinema City in Anaheim Hills

Offering an assortment of deals that will please your wallet, Cinema City is able to keep costs lower by maintaining digital projection for all of its screenings. No scratchy film prints or color-tinted reels. Pure digital quality. The interior is well kept, with very comfortable seats and fun themes in the larger auditoriums. General admission is $9.00, but goes down to $8.00 for students, police, fire, or military personnel. Children are just $6.00 and senior citizens can grab a ticket for $5.00. Want to check out an early showing and avoid the crowds? Come in before 6pm and the ticket is just $6.00. Or if you’re ready to go before noon, you can get into a movie for only $5.00. The savings continue to the concession stand, where a popcorn and soda are not the monetary equivalent of a steak dinner as with most cinemas. Plus, you can print out a coupon from the website to receive a free small popcorn with any beverage purchase.

For adults that want to indulge:
Cinema Fusion in Anaheim

Featuring an IMAX screen and special 21 and over screenings, Cinema Fusion boasts a beautiful facility. The Sky Lobby (21+) will allow you to enjoy a beer or wine with your movie, as you kick back in elegant leather seats. If you are interested in classics, Cinema Fusion dedicates a screen to classic films. Arrive early for trivia and giveaways. Not into classics? How about cult films? The OC Rewind features popular films from the past, but without the black and white. General Admission is $10.50, with $9.50 matinees. Children get in at $8.00, while seniors and students pay $9.50. For the Sky Lobby, admission bumps up by a dollar.

For the fans who want to splurge on the Blockbuster:
Edwards Irvine Spectrum 21 in Irvine

The Spectrum is the place to experience IMAX in Orange County. With an eight-story screen and an enveloping sound system, you’ll know why the ticket cost so much extra. For IMAX 3D, you’ll dish out a distressing $16.50, or $13.75 for seniors and children. General admission is $11.50, with children and seniors getting in at a decent $8.75. While the Irvine Spectrum shopping center will provide additional entertainment, with a great dining selection, it is certainly an option to exercise only for those special occasions.

    Cinema City is by far the best for me. All digital and super cheap.
