Like spritzing an email with cologne, blowing kisses at a movie screen is a heartfelt romantic gesture that proves fruitless in attracting movie stars. Experience unrequited love with today's Groupon: for $6, you get a triple-feature movie night for two at Brew & View at the Vic Theatre in Lakeview (a $17 total value). The movie night includes:

  • Two admissions (a $5 value each)
  • Two medium popcorns (a $3.50 value each)

The Brew & View transforms the historic, 1,000-seat Vic Theatre from a live-music venue to a site of cinematic revelry, where patrons 18 and older can enjoy three movies in a row with dinner and drinks. Check the schedule and choose from a selection of favorite second- or third-run movies, cult classics, and underground favorites, or bribe the projectionist into screening your sequel to Citizen Kane. During the films, mixologists shake and stir drink specials for patrons 21 and older from behind the Theatre’s three bars. The Vic forbids outside food and beverages, but hungry moviegoers can order in from featured local restaurants and have their food delivered right to the theater. Brew & View generally shows films at 6:30 p.m., 8:30 p.m., and 10:30 p.m. Monday–Saturday, and at 5 p.m., 7 p.m., and 9 p.m. on Sunday, but check the schedule or this morning’s I Ching reading for details.

Brew & View

The cinematic alter ego of the Vic Theatre, Brew & View splashes retinas with recently released and cult-favorite films in a historic 1912 vaudeville house. As of November 2014, Brew & View has undergone a full overhaul of their projection equipment, including a top-of-the-line projector, new screen, and improvements to the sound system. Weekly schedules flaunt a mix-and-match of cinematic adventures, from recent box-office smashes to classic flicks of days gone by, drawing viewers in with high-speed action scenes, star-crossed romances, and laugh out loud comedies. A full bar serve cocktails, a revolving assortment of draft beers, and other beverages until the end of each movie, which often leads to viewers reciting the dialogue and responding to the movie out loud—a character trait the theater is proud of. And the venue helps audience members keep their energy up with plenty of sustenance: White Castle burgers, pizzas, buttery popcorn, and a selection of candy and other snacks keep stomachs from grumbling along to Grease.

The guys that work there are amazingly friendly and helpful! Fun experience. So glad I went to see Labyrinth in honor of Bowie. Fun date night idea.
