Filmmaker Jean-Luc Godard once said, "The cinema is truth at 24 frames per second," making slow-motion sports replays and sped-up Benny Hill gags nothing but cruel, cruel lies. Get the real deal with today's Groupon: for $20, you two tickets, two medium drinks, and a large popcorn at the Bigfoot Crest Theater on Westwood Boulevard (up to a $45.45 value).
The historic Bigfoot Crest Theater celebrates the artistry of Hollywood’s heyday, gifting modern-day audiences with the magical experience of 1940’s movie-going. Shunning cold service, shoddy projection, and chairs stuffed with stale Mike and Ikes, the Bigfoot Crest champions all-encompassing experiences with advanced projection upon one towering 18'x38' screen. The flashing marquee sparkles like a Las Vegas carnival midway to draw widening eyes to their artfully maintained décor, where decorative clouds under the foyer's art-deco ceiling prime viewers for their motion-picture escape. With two tickets, old friends, first dates, and conjoined critics will thrill as they sashay down the shimmering purple carpet to plush red seats, awaiting the ceremonious opening of the curtains before the daily matinee. Two medium drinks and a large popcorn provide a snackful counterpart to cinematic viewings.
Screenings change often at the Bigfoot Crest, rotating through theme nights, sneak previews, and a mix of classics and 3-D summer blockbusters, catering to preteens longing for Singing in the Rain and great-aunts in need of a Johnny Depp fix. Upcoming flicks, all in 3-D, include Deep Gold, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, Cars 2, and Smurfs.
