Last summer The Grand Theatre in Pier Park dubuted their new IMAX theater with the final installment of Harry Potter, The Deathly Hallows.  Since, they’ve played a number of hits in IMAX and IMAX 3D.  The current hit is The Dark Knight Rises, but on the schedule for this year include Skyfall, Resident Evil, Indiana Jones, and Frankenweenie.

What we’re giving away

This giveaway if for movie tickets to the Grand Theatre in Pier Park, is 6 total passes and includes:

  • 2 IMAX Courtesy Passes
  • 4 Standard Courtesy Passes (value of general admission)
There is one slight caveat – all passes expire at the end of December of 2012.

The best thing to come to the beach in years has been The Grand. No better way to relax, day or night, sunshine or rain, then chilling to a good movie in a clean comfortable theater. Enjoy the latest news and writings from PCBDaily.

I love the IMAX at Pier Park! I own a condo in Panama City Beach and one of favorite past times is to the IMAX! It doesn’s matter if I have seen it before. The IMAX at the GRAND is a wonderful experience. I planned my trips to the Florida this year so I could see Spider Man/ Batman Avengers! The winter line up is looking good!

I would so wish for this to be given tomy sweet brothers fiance Monika Bek-Scott , she is the most amasing person in Panama City Beach. She makes dentures for a living an has the biggest heart in your city. She helps to make dentures for the elderly an doesnt charge them money if they cant afford it, she lets them trade it for things such as there son doing a break job on her car, she is from Germany an her dream was to come to America when she was small. She got the dream to come to America an it would be so nice for America or just Panama City Beach to give her something that is free to her , she so deserves a night at the movies . Please allow her to win this, she would be so excited an put a smile on her face. Its not for me,its for her. So if I win she wins, please contact her.

I would like to comment on, if I won, I could not use the tickets until I arrive in PCB which would be after Dec. 29th, 2012. So, I should be able to use them while visiting for the 3 months I will be there after that date so why is there an experation date?
” A WIN IS A WIN !”. Right? This would be a big PLUS for us while vacationing in PCB as we go to the “Grand” as our treat while there. Please extend the date to use the tickets.

56 Jason Koertge August 20, 2012 at 7:51 pm

There is an expiration date because that what The Grand put on them so things like this aren’t hanging out there for an indefinite period of time. 😉

I would like to enter the giveaway for the imax and standard tickets at The Grand Theatre.
I live in Kentucky and will be visiting PCB from Sept 25th through Oct 31st. My wife and I stayed in PCB for the month of October for the first time last year. We both loved it so much that we plan on making it an annual event. We stayed at the Calypso right across from Pier Park and absolutely loved the entire experience. Since then I keep up with what is happening in PCB by regularly reading pcbdaily. Looking forward to being back in PCB in a few weeks. The tickets would be a wonderful welcome back prize.
