Eating pizza while watching a movie gives your mouth something to do while your mind wraps itself around Ernest’s constant lack of forethought. Exercise your tongue and your sense of verisimilitude with today’s Groupon: for $18, you get pizza, two drinks, and two movie tickets (up to a $37 value) at 3rd Street Pizza Company in McMinnville. The 3rd Street Pizza Company offers a sensory pleasing combination of hand-tossed, New York–style slices alongside blockbuster entertainment in front of the eatery’s full-sized film screen in its Moonlight Theater. Pick your 14-inch pie from a savory menu of saucy selections, with your choice of two toppings to serve as pepperoni, artichoke, or blue-cheese earrings. As you repose with your fire-baked helping, sip a soda or sudsy beer while taking in a talkie with a friend, or down two drinks and watch on your own—with pizza in hand, you’ve got all the company you’ll ever need.
If you redeem your Groupon during a matinee showing (at 1 p.m. or 4 p.m.), you will also receive a free pazooki, an ice-cream cookie pie (a $4.45 value).

3rd Street Pizza Company
Since 1997, 3rd Street Pizza Company has fused food and film into a ready-made night out. On one side of the business, hand-tossed dough is fired atop hot stones, which yields crisp New York–style pizzas topped with a signature blend of mozzarella, provolone, and monterey jack cheeses. Sauce options also reach beyond the standard red to include thai peanut, pesto, and garlic parmesan. The pies anchor a menu that features calzones, sandwiches, and microbrews, all of which can be taken into showings at Moonlight Theater. Recent releases stretch out across a full-size movie screen that teams up with a 12-speaker surround-sound system as high-tech as the ones judges use to make their verdicts extra scary. The restaurant also supports arts beyond film and pizza—a dining-room wall functions as a rotating gallery space, and live musicians occasionally play during dinner.
