Newsboy? Bowler? Top Hat? Fedora? Merry Widow for the ladies? Our hats are off to you, ladies and gentleman of the hat brigade. We bow to your dapper dan-ishness.
(And for those of you who may not currently own a charming headcovering of your own, may we recommend that you check out our down the street neighbor, Bonnet, whose collection of hats is truly spectacular, and very reasonably priced!)
This discount is available only in person at the box office, and you must be wearing your headgear at the time of purchase. Feel free to get creative. You never know. The box office might award you extra points for style!
