Movie Ticket for 51 Cents? Palisades Celebrates Maisel Day

By Keldine Hull

Picture it. Los Angeles. 1959. A movie ticket was around $1.00, a loaf of bread was about 20 cents and the average cost of a brand new car was about $2,200. Postage stamps were a whopping 4 cents, the average house cost approximately $10,900 and a T- Bone steak was about $1.09 a pound. While prices that low are (very) sadly a thing of the past, for one day, and one day only in August, Angelenos will get to experience 1959 prices.

Maisel Day in Los Angeles, an Amazon- themed affair to remember based on Amazon’s Emmy- nominated original comedy series “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” takes place this Thursday, August 15. Angelenos can visit participating retailers and pay prices that reflect the era in which the show was set: 1959. Grab your cheaters, flip your wig and floor it a Maisel Day retailer near you.
