At drive-in theaters, the best seats are reserved for punctual elitists and fashionably late monster trucks. Avoid the perils of Hobbesian parking battles by settling into a cozy seat with today's deal: for $10, you get two tickets, two sodas, and a large popcorn (up to a $22 value) at Burton Theatre in Chinatown/Cass Corridor.
Burton Theatre shows classic art house, independent, LGBT, foreign, and cult films. Recent moving pictures to move across its silver screens include Enter the Void, a neon romp through Tokyo by French filmmaker Gaspar Noé and What Is It?, a dark comedy from Crispin Glover about a man's struggle with personal demons and personal hygiene. You’ll take in the sights and sounds of the cinema with a large popcorn and classic cane-sugared Faygo soda in your hand. Although this Groupon is not valid for special events, Burton theatre occasionally also hosts Q & A sessions with filmmakers to discuss cinematic issues and themes and answer audience questions such as “why is your top hat filled with toothbrush heads?” Check the calendar for movie times and events.
- Hands down the best place to see a movie in Metro Detroit/Southeast Michigan. The flicks they play at the Burton you won't see anywhere else in Michigan. Plus the whole place has a very cool vibe gives off a very nostalgic feeling. – Aric S., Yelp
