For those having a hard time deciding where to take that special someone on Valentine’s Day, here are a few ideas that will not break the bank.

The theater department at this college is kicking off the 2015 season with a production of “Rabbit Hole.” Written by David Lindsay Abaire, it’s a story about Becca and Howie Corbett, who thought they had everything a family could want, until an accident turns their world upside down.

Charles Falcon, fine arts instructor, said this play is not necessarily a date-night story.

“This play deals with death and grief, so please be aware of that,” he said.

Tickets for the show are still available and will be sold on the day of each show.

Show times are 7:30 p.m. Feb. 12-14 and Feb. 19-21, with Sunday matinee at 2:30 p.m. Feb. 15 and 22 in the McCreless Theater at this college.

Tickets are $5 with a student ID. Students without an ID pay $10.

For more information, call 210-486-0255.

For more of a love story, couples might plan a date at the San Pedro Playhouse to see ”The Last Five Years.”

Starring Grant Bryan as Jamie and Reagan Wilson as Cathy, “the musical tells the story of a five-year relationship through song,” said Shannon Bishop, box office manager.

She said the two actors start from different points in the show.

The female actor starts from the end of the relationship and moves backward, and the male actor starts in the beginning of the relationship and moves forward.

Tickets are $32 for adults, $15 for students and $20 for military. Bishop said the show runs from Jan. 23 to Feb. 15.

For more information, call 210-733-7258.

For a romantic film under the stars, Movies by Moonlight presents a free Valentine’s Day screening of “Sleepless in Seattle” 6-8:45 p.m. Feb. 13 in Travis Park, 301 E. Travis St.

The event includes a cash bar, food trucks and music.

For more information, call 210-207-3677.

Movie buffs should also know that Alamo Drafthouse Cinema has three locations across San Antonio: 1255 SW Loop 410, 618 NW Loop 410 and 22806 N. U.S. Highway 281.

The theaters offer student and military discounts of $7 during the week and $8 on the weekend.

The Scobee Edu-cation Center at this college will host “Over the Moon: A Valentine’s Day Mission to Space,” a simulated space mission at the Challenger Learning Center 6:30–8:30 p.m. Feb. 13.

Wine and cheese will be served for guests 21 and older.

Tickets for the event will be given away on Great Day S.A. and Fox News First.
