(Feb. 24, 2010)--As a new service, UTSA students, faculty and staff can purchase discounted tickets valid at all Santikos movie theaters. The University Center information center at the Main Campus offers $9.50 tickets for evening showings at the discounted price of $6.50.
"Whether they are purchased for personal use or for student or departmental giveaways, our new Santikos SuperSaver passes provide a great value to everyone at UTSA," said Angela Hicks, information center retail manager.
The Santikos SuperSaver passes do not expire and can be exchanged at any Santikos box office for an "admit one" ticket, based on availability. Santikos theaters closest to UTSA include the Palladium at The Rim and the Silverado 16 at Loop 1604 and Bandera Road. Other Santikos theaters accepting the SuperSaver pass include the Mayan Palace, Embassy 14, Northwest 14 and Bijou Cinema Bistro.
Additionally, users can upgrade SuperSaver passes to an IMAX movie for $4 extra or to a 3-D film for $2.50. Passes are not redeemable for cash or events designated "special engagement."
The passes are available at the UC Information Center next to the Events Management and Conference Services office. The Information Center accepts VISA, MasterCard, American Express and Discover, cash, UTSACard and personal checks with ID.
