Mayweather-Alvarez Avaliable in Beltway Movie Theaters For $25!

If you are a child of the 70's and 80's, you may remember the days when big boxing cards were shown on what was called "closed circuit" television.  This meant that you went to a location -- like an arena or a movie theater and watched the bout on a giant screen.

I remember watching Marvin Hagler take on Juan Domingo Roldan outdoors on a big screen at CharlesTown Race Track in West Virginia.  I saw the Mike Tyson-Michael Spinks title bout immediately after a live Washington Bullets game at the Capital Centre.

For those of you who never had the opportunity to have the "closed-circuit experience" or you just want to take it old-school, you can do so on Saturday, September 14 when the Floyd-Mayweather-Canelo Alvarez card will be shown in 550 movie theaters across the country including many in Maryland and Northern Virginia.

Tickets for the showing are $25 and you will see the main event and the co-feature bout between Lucas Matthysse and Danny Garcia.  That price is compared to the $65-75 price to watch the card in your home.

Here are the area locations scheduled to show the card which will begin at 9 PM ET:


Abingdon -- Bel Air Cinema 14

Bowie -- Bowie Crossing 14

Columbia -- Snowden Square 14

Frostburg -- Cinemas 1-2-3

Germantown -- Germantown 14

Hanover -- Cinemark Egyptian 24 with XD (located in Arundel Mills)

Ocean City -- Fox Sun and Surf 8 Cinema

Owings Mills -- Owings Mills 17 with IMAX

Northern Virginia:

Alexandria -- Hoffman 22 with IMAX, Potomac Yards Stadium 16

Arlington -- Ballston Commons 12

Fairfax -- Fairfax Towne Center

Fredericksburg -- Fredericksburg 14.

This is great news. I heard a few of the porn theaters are also showing it and for an extra 10.00, you get a Happy Ending. Can you post those places to mr g?
