Towering above the already-imposing 14-screen multiplex of Hoyts West Nursery Cinemas is a luminescent globe encircled by a giant strip of film. It’s a sign of the theater’s mission to create an all-encompassing movie experience. Stadium seating inside every theater gives even the littlest family members undisturbed views of new releases, and digital sound systems broadcast musical numbers, high-tech explosions, and intercom requests to share your Skittles in crystal clarity. At the snack bar, traditional concessions are supplemented by made-to-order Uno pizzas.

Admission for all three games is included in the value of this Groupon. The ball-tossing battle begins with the number-seven-ranked Terps taking on the preseason's top-rated team, Duke, for a rousing field-romp at 11 a.m. Next, watch as Princeton's rising stars Jack McBride and Chad Wiedmaier go up against Johns Hopkins at 1:30 p.m. The day concludes with Notre Dame versus Loyola at 4 p.m. Take in all the action from club-level seats.
In recent years, The 8x10’s musical focus has returned to the name and vibe that it first debuted in 1983, serving up nightly live bands alongside a full bar of drinks and draft brews. The tap slings 16 ounces of frosty fermentables into beer glasses ($3.50–$6) and a backing track of bottled brews wets whistles ($4.50–$6; $8 for 22 oz. Fat Tire). Like a giraffe on stilts, drinks at The 8x10 are double-tall, so a goblet of Red Bull and vodka hosts an up-tempo duet of two shots ($8.50).
The film festival, which begins on January 4th, features seven eye-smacking films shown on a full-size, five-story IMAX screen. The fest lasts for nine weeks, and there's no need to purchase Science Center admission ticket to attend any of the showings. Film choices include movies like Hurricane on the Bayou, a stirring documentary narrated by Meryl Streep that taps deep into the musical soul of the Big Easy before, during, and after the devastation wrought by Hurricane Katrina. Volcanoes of the Deep Sea brings viewers 12,000 feet into the depths of the deep Atlantic wherescientists aboard a submersible explore the alien creatures, landscapes, and fast food franchises of earth's ocean floor. Other larger-than-life flicks include Michael Jordon to the Max, Greatest Places, Survival Island, and Extreme, which follows adventure-seeking athletes as they challenge some of the most intense forces of nature to a game of foosball. Music fans can nod their heads to U2 3D, a front stage pass to U2's worldwide Vertigo tour, filmed during the band's stop in South America.
