Did you know that, on average, 88% of the seats in a movie theater remain empty during a showing? According to the New York Times, this phenomenon really surprised Sean Wycliffe a few years back when he went to see the Oscar-winning film The King's Speech and shared the theater with only two other audience members. With all the focus on online video services, Sean realized movie theaters were being overlooked, and came up with a concept that could help movie houses fill their empty seats. His brainchild became Dealflicks, a website that offers customers discounted tickets (sometimes with popcorn or soda) for same-day showings. Customers shop a selection of deals, each of which is specific to a particular film, theater, and showtime, and upon purchase, receive an email voucher they present at the theater's ticket counter. Dealflicks is partnered with theaters around the country, particularly independent and neighborhood venues, such as the treehouse of the enterprising kid down the street.

Hands-on exploration of science, mathematics, and space travel awaits within more than 290 exhibits at Sci-Port: Louisiana's Science Center. The 92,000-square-foot nonprofit museum is divided into nine galleries. Roaming the galleries, Sci-Port's science-savvy demonstrators invite guests to help them with activities such as dissecting sharks or dissecting all the plot holes in Jaws. On top of that, the museum is currently hosting the traveling exhibit How to Make a Monster: The Art and Technology of Animatronics, which explores the art and engineering behind "movie magic." The museum also hosts myriad events throughout the year, from science-of-mixology sessions for adults to famous-scientist "birthday parties" where kids can swap scientist-themed trading cards. Even more scientific enlightenment can be found in Sci-Port's IMAX Dome Theatre and Sawyer Space Dome Planetarium, which show films on subjects such as the human body and the sun, respectively.

With an ambitious repertoire that mixes ancient classics with groundbreaking new plays, Broken Gears Project Theatre puts on socially conscious spectacles aimed at challenging both spectator and performer. Creditors, on view through March 3, is a darkly comic tale of how old debts can reopen old wounds. Running March 17–26, The Magadalen Whitewash explores a dark chapter in Irish history when women were forced into abusive convents for becoming pregnant outside of marriage. Between April 21 and May 8, players don masks for a take on Sophocles' ancient Greek melodrama Oedipus The King, but utilize multimedia techniques to give it a decidedly modern feel. Finally, La Mano (The Hand) presents a magical realist fable about a rich man that buys a hand on the black market, and the original owner who wants it back, from June 6–26.
