Okay so we all know the oldest date in the book is dinner and a movie.

But what if you could do both in the same place? Oh, right that has been done already actually. But what if you could go to a fancy OYSTER BAR and then go see a movie all in the same place? There that's more specific.

A new oyster bar opened in the Roxy Hotel in Tribeca last month, which houses the beloved Roxy Cinema downstairs.

With happy hour deals of $1 oysters and discounted cocktails, and some of the cheapest movie tickets in town at $10, it's the perfect fancy-on-a-budget date idea!

Just slurp down some oysters and cocktails, then head downstairs to catch a flick at the Roxy Cinema. Don't eat too many oysters before the movie, though... You know what they say about oysters, and getting it on in a public movie theater is still frowned upon, y'all.

The Roxy has a fun rotation of new, indie, and classic films. Here's what's on deck for the last two weekends of March:

Friday, March 24

Hackshaw Ridge at 7:30pm

Marie Antoinette at midnight

Saturday, March 25

Jawbreaker at 4pm

Another Earth at 6pm

Jackie at 7:35pm

Sunday, March 26

Thursday, March 30

Moonlight at 7:30pm

Friday, March 31

Admission is complimentary for guests, so maybe make a whole night of it, check into a room, and then go ahead and eat all the oysters your li'l heart desires? Sounds like a hot date to us.
