Watching movies can provide a much-needed escape from the real world, in which the appearance of skyscraper-climbing gorillas and murderous dolls grows more common each day. Retreat to cinematic fantasies with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get a movie night for two including two movie tickets (up to a $10.50 value each) and a large popcorn (a $7.50 value) at CinéBistro, located at Peninsula Town Center in Hampton (up to a $28.50 total value).
At CinéBistro, a luxurious dining theater, patrons settle into wide cushioned seats as they watch the latest action flicks and comedies flicker on the silver screen. Viewing companions alternate drawing buttery, salty puffed maize out of a shared tub of popcorn, hoping to find Gene Hackman's golden business card buried somewhere inside. Although not included with this Groupon, CinéBistro serves seated cinema aficionados a wide menu of appetizers, entrees, and desserts to complement their popcorn, from a caesar salad for a light meal ($10.75) to a pan-seared Atlantic salmon cooked to order ($19.50). Dessert indulgences include a deconstructed peanut-butter pie ($8), and liquid indulgences proffer a wine list full of international vintages to guzzle during foreign movies, as well as domestic and imported beers, martinis, and cocktails.
