Cinematic technology has come a long way since the days when families would dive out of the way of trains moving toward the camera and watch Charlie Chaplin silently shout wall-to-wall obscenities, but the joys of the silver screen remain the same. Celebrate the time-honored tradition of a night at the movies with the latest tech and today's Groupon. For $9, you get two general-admission tickets to a showing of your choice at the Santikos Silverado 19 IMAX Theatres (up to an $19 value), located in Tomball.
Santikos Silverado 19 IMAX has kept up with the latest advancements while still preserving the pleasures of the movie-going experience, though the establishment is still fine-tuning an electro-magnetic pulse that will disable phones from texting. Each theater features curved screens and digital projection and sound, ensuring a crisp, clear image with no more blinking black dots in the corner or irrational fears that the film will jam and release its CGI monsters into the real world. The only thing you will need to worry about is achieving perfectly timed restroom trips. Before, during, or after the flick, take advantage of the impressive concession area, replete with classic theater fare as well as more elegant options such as coffee, gelato, and restaurant-prepared complete meals, then burn off some calories by bustling your thumbs in the game room.
If a picture is worth 1,000 words, then a projected film is worth 1,000 words multiplied by 24 frames per second, rendering a digitally projected film worth its weight in megabytes. Hence, it is priceless, or worthless, depending on how much of it was directed by Michael Bay. Enjoy the latest priceless moving artwork at Santikos Silverado 19 IMAX Theatres with a fellow film buff and today's Groupon.
This Groupon is not valid for “no passes” showings. You can choose to upgrade your ticket at the box office to 3D for an additional $3, IMAX for $4.50, or D-BOX for $8.
