The first moving picture, which depicted a horse running at full gallop, was quickly enhanced by the first special effects, which showed a horse exploding next to a 3-D spaceship. Enjoy advances in film with today's Groupon: for $12, you get a movie outing for two at Cinema Village in Greenwich Village (up to a $27 value). The movie outing includes:
- Two adult admissions (up to a $22 value)
- One large popcorn (a $5 value)
Cinema Village's three auditoriums entrance audiences with quirky indie and cult-classic films projected along with state-of-the-art Dolby Digital sound. Moviegoers can grab a friend, date, or their favorite Roeper and settle in with a documentary such as The Weird World of Blowfly, chronicling the history and current life of the original dirty rapper; or foreign flicks such as The Last Circus, mixing horror and fantasy during the Spanish Civil War. A large popcorn facilitates "accidental" hand-holding during romantic scenes while simultaneously keeping stomachs from reading subtitles aloud.
Alpine Cinemas eight theaters make current movies come alive as massive screens merge with Dolby Digital sound to keep each crowd of 200 or more immersed in the action. The signature theater injects even more realism with roomy stadium seats and 3-D capabilities that add an extra dimension without having to bring a 20-foot friend to act out the movie. Before shows, guests can stock up on refreshments at the snack bar equipped with savory popcorn and bubbly soda.
“Great little indy cinema.”
“Great movie theater in the neighborhood, and although small and quaint, the prices allow us to frequent this movie theater much more than others.”
