Plano-based Cinemark announced Movie Club, a movie membership program that for $8.99 per month provides members a free ticket to a 2-D movie, the ability to reserve seats with no fees and a discount on concessions in the theater.

In a press release, Cinemark's CEO Mark Zoradi stated, "Based on the feedback we received, we designed Movie Club with all of the features and benefits that moviegoers desire most in a membership program without any of the hassle, enabling our guests to enjoy the moviegoing experience with their friends and family.”

Domino's Pizza is tweaking its home delivery service for those times you're not at home.
After years of delivery right to your doorstep, Domino's drivers will now deliver to outdoor locations.
That includes beaches, parks, landmarks, and other outdoor locations across the country.
Domino's says its drivers will deliver to 150-thousand locations from the Gateway Arch in St. Louis, to the "Welcome to Las Vegas" sign.
The locations are now active and show up in the company's app or website as "Domino's Hotspots."
Customers pre-pay for their orders, select a location, and your pizza is on the way.
Previously, Domino's delivered to offbeat locations, but, the new service sets up designated drop off points.
The service was tested last fall in Miami before being rolled out nationwide.

The idea isn't new, Moviepass.com launched this year offering as many tickets as you like to any movie, any day for $9.95 per month.

Some users reported issues getting theaters to accept the card as the service first launched, but now report things have improved, moviepass.com said they have America's largest theater network with some 4,000 participating theaters nationwide.

Other cinemas offer membership programs offering frequent flyer-type deals for returning customers. Cinemark's program seems to combine the idea behind those with moviepass.com.

You can check out Moviepass' program on their website, and the same for Cinemark.

Canadian lawmakers wore hockey jerseys on Monday to honor the victims and their families of that tragic bus crash in Canada that killed 16 people.
The bus was carrying the junior league Humboldt hockey team to a game when a tractor-trailer slammed into the bus.
Sixteen were killed and thirteen people were injured in the crash.
Today's remembrance was one of a number of events that honored the team and their families.
Earlier the lawmakers honored Rusty Staub, a major leaguer who played for the Montreal Expos and the New York Mets.
