Food's presence in the theater dates back to the days when audiences pelted bad performers with fruit and good performers with steaks. Honor the old times with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of admission, dinner, and beverages at Cinema Grill in Aurora. Today's Groupon is not valid on half-off Tuesdays.
The Cinema Grill hosts complete evenings of entertainment by pairing a menu of classic American grub with a long list of recent flicks. After paying the price of admission ($2.50 for matinees; $4 for evening shows), theater-goers can grab a comfy seat and some popcorn ($3.99–$5.99), then await a visit from a friendly server. While digesting a juicy plotline, diners can masticate cheese-topped cheddar burgers ($8.99) or crispy chicken sandwiches ($9.99), or carefully peel back pepperoni to reveal a potentially celebrity-autographed pizza crust ($7.99+). Savor a hot-fudge sundae ($4.49) alongside a sweet romantic comedy, or stifle terrified screams with bites of apple pie à la mode ($4.99). Of-age patrons can snag a few R-rated beverages, which include mugs of Fat Tire ale ($3.99) and irish coffee ($5.99).
Though the establishment is highly family friendly, Cinema Grill has a strict 17-and-older-only policy for R-rated films. This Groupon is not valid toward half-price admission on Tuesdays.
A movie palace to its core, The Cinema Grill favors a vibrant color scheme rarely seen outside the early days of Technicolor. The lobby's multi-hued walls surround the checkerboard box office with bright yellows, blues, and purples, while neon curlicues on the ceiling beckon movie-goers toward their movie. The menu of American staples mirrors the colorful decor with glowing margaritas, desserts topped with maraschino cherries, quesadillas speckled with green peppers, and deep-fried rainbows. Once ensconced in their swivel chairs, guests bathe in the high-definition (and sometimes three-dimensional) glow of the silver screen as servers take food orders and keep eating areas laden with plates of buffalo wings and shrimp fettuccine alfredo. Beers, cocktails, or glasses of wine are also available.
