A film is the result of hundreds of people working together, from the director overseeing it all to the guy who insults the actors so they can cry realistically. Witness movie magic with this Groupon.

The Harper Theater
Originally opened in 1913, The Harper Theater's geometric, prairie-style lines were designed by noted Chicago architect Horatio Wilson. The space operated as a movie house for decades, but sat dormant for more than 10 years before reopening in 2012. Now screening an ever-changing selection of wide-release films, the theater boasts a crystal-clear digital projection system as well as 3-D capabilities that make blockbusters pop off the screen and critically dull audience reflexes for when a T-rex really does burst through the projection canvas.
Despite its commitment to screening Hollywood hits, the theater takes a local approach to refreshments in its onsite cafe, dishing out locally roasted, artisanal Metropolis coffee and treats from the nearby Medici bakery.
