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 $10, you get two adult tickets and one large popcorn at the Edmonds Theater, located on Main Street (up to a $21.50 value).
The Edmonds Theater serves as a well-maintained reminder of Edmonds history and as a charming venue in which to catch new releases and future classics. More than $50,000 in upgrades during the past five years have raised the theater's projected presentations to ever-loftier levels, providing celluloid-craving locals with a top-notch environment in which to peer at gritty romantic comedies and touching action flicks. Bring a date up to the balcony, sink into comfortable chairs, share a bag of popcorn, and allow your vision orbs to high-dive into the cool depths of the motion-picture image, a fantastic voyage forever denied to the eyes in the back of your head.
The friendly cinema staff is on hand to answer any questions that come to mind, such as why yelling "Bacon!" in a crowded theater is still legal. After the film, cinephiles can wander the restaurant-riddled Edmonds waterfront to sip coffee and eavesdrop on people watchers. Check online for more information on movie selections and show times.
Perhaps it’s the new releases, the waterfront location, or the nearby cafes and restaurants that garnered the solitary screen at Edmonds Theater more than a thousand approving thumbs on Facebook. Or maybe it was that historic screen itself, flickering like a time-traveling DeLorean or the fire that engulfs an inexperienced magician’s top hat in an old-fashioned movie house complete with colorful murals and balcony seating. No strangers to performing their movie magic, the cinephile staff members of Edmonds Theater have fostered a devoted following. Generally screening one new movie at a time, they are also known to set aside a day or seven for thematic marathons, which go down even better with candy, nachos, or kettle corn.
