At drive-in theaters, the best seats are reserved for punctual elitists and fashionably late monster trucks. Avoid the dangers of oversized cargonauts by settling into a cozy seat with today’s Groupon: for $9, you get two general-admission tickets to 5 Points Theatre (up to a $20 value), located on Park Street. Grab up to five Groupons for a makeshift season pass to the land of moving pictures.
Originally built in 1927, 5 Points Theatre has undergone a transformation throughout the years from “talkie” palace to neo-modern nightclub to contemporary art-house cinema, earning accolades from the Florida Times-Union for its eclectic and offbeat lineup of films. The upcoming calendar hosts a variety of exclusives and special showings in addition to popcorn-popping Hollywood releases. Stop in for cult-classic midnight screenings, during which the theater transforms into a pumpkin carriage piloted by the delicate dreams of cinematic fans. The eclectic mix of motion pics ensures you’ll still be able to catch Blue Valentine between viewings of foreign flicks, such as the Best Picture–nominated British historical drama The King’s Speech.
Though your Groupon only covers the cost of admission, 5 Points Theatre’s drink menu eliminates common problems associated with going out for drinks before visiting the movies. With engaging cinema and drinks all under one roof, you needn’t worry about taking a taxi to the movie theater, getting out of the taxi, realizing you’re at a deserted zoo, and settling for watching your palm against your eyes. While you relax before the flickering screen, you can enjoy domestic pints ($3.50) or make a midnight movie more romantic with a carafe of house wine ($13). Grab today’s Groupon and watch in amazement as 5 Points Theatre adds one more dimension to standard 1-D films.
