What You'll Get
Today's side deal blends music and film into an aromatic elixir with notes of cherry and sandalwood on the nose: for $10, you get two general-admission tickets ($8.50 each) to a specialty screening of Blood Into Wine at 5 Points Theatre, a $17 total value. Your Groupon is redeemable for a special, one-time screening of the flick at the Riverside movie house on Saturday, May 15, at 2 p.m. With this special deal, the movie will only be shown if it reaches the tipping point. Purchase up to five Groupons and bring your entire cohort along.
The 2010 documentary Blood Into Wine chronicles the trials and tribulations of Tool frontman Maynard James Keenan as he and partner Eric Glomski attempt to launch a group of wineries in northern Arizona. Sip a glass ($4.50 and up) or carafe ($13) of 5 Point's house wine and nosh on a slice of pizza (starting at $3.50) in the intimate, 220-seat 1927 theater as you watch the reclusive rocker take on the wild world of winemaking. The documentary, which debuted at the 2010 Noise Pop festival, features appearances by Milla Jovovich and Patton Oswalt.
- …[Maynard James] Keenan is such a compelling presence - smart, polite, creative and seemingly so full of bottled-up rage he might tear someone's head off at any second - that it's a journey well worth following. – Bill Goodykoontz
Three Yelpers give 5 Points Theatre 4.5 stars:
- ...I love this place. The theater itself (built in 1927!) is very large, has a cool balcony, and features bathrooms inside. Yes, that means you don't even have to leave your theater to pee… – Callie K.
- It's really comfy inside...There are little tables to rest your drinks and food on. Parking in Five Points is always within a block or two at the most… – Mel M.
