I hadn't heard of this theatre prior to the groupon. The popcorn was fresh, the movie funny and unique, and I'll definitely be back.

Recommended because it has a nice purpose. However the Groupon makes it seem like you are going to the movies with a date (2 tix, 2 popcorn, 2 sodas, and a picture of a cuddling blonde couple - make that a date in 1957) and really you are going to a dishelved, artistic hole in the wall that is meant to make you think and reflect. If you portray the Groupon correctly (make the icon the poster of a recognizable foreign film), you are more likely to get the kind of people who will come back to the theater or library.

What You'll Get


A good film is life without the boring bits or any of Carrot Top's scenes. Savor a celluloid delight with this Groupon.

$16 for a Movie Outing for Two (a $32 Total Value)

  • Two tickets to any screening (an $18 value)
  • Two small sodas (a $6 value)
  • Two small popcorns (an $8 value)

Upcoming films include The Color Wheel (July 27–August 2), an offbeat black and white comedy that the New York Times praised as "sly, daring, genuinely original and at times perversely brilliant," and Richard's Wedding, whose meandering, idiosyncratic dialogue won a special jury prize for best screenplay at the Sarasota Film Festival.

Facets Cinematheque

A nonprofit theater helmed by passionate cinephile Charles Coleman, Facets Cinematheque lights up its silver screen with indie films, award winners, foreign flicks, and documentaries collected from film festivals around the world. Celluloid-caretakers curate a collection of reels that seldom see screenings elsewhere in Chicago, frequently enjoying their city debut within the intimate 125-seat theater. Occasionally, production-team members or film experts join audiences immediately following the show for Q and A sessions—known as film dialogues—taking questions, exploring themes, and providing tips for removing stubborn popcorn kernels from teeth. Upcoming films can be found on Facets’ website.

Eyeballs absorb moving pictures thanks to the dual capabilities of Facets’ projection system, which handles both digital and 35 mm films with equal aplomb. While the ephemeral stories fill brains with new ideas, two sodas and popcorns—acquirable at the old-fashioned concession stand—fill mouths with flavors that have defined every classic moviegoing experience since Orson Welles first invented the snack.

About Facets Cinematheque


A nonprofit theater helmed by passionate cinephiles, Facets Cinematheque instills a love of film in its youngest moviegoers through its groundbreaking children's programs. Since establishing their first children's film exhibition series in 1975, the theater's stewards have branched out into education and outreach, introducing students to positive films and the inspiring stories behind them through channels including family film events, in-school screenings, and the Facets Kids Film Camp. They also oversee the Chicago International Children’s Film Festival, which presents hundreds of films from around the globe during its annual autumn run. Though the festival caters to its smallest attendees, its scope is impressively large; welcoming over 20,000 attendees each year, the festival often offers the first screenings of award-winning fare, such as recent Academy Award winner _The Fantastic Flying Books Of Mr. Morris Lessmore_.

In addition to their children's programming, the theater also lights up its silver screen with indie films, award winners, foreign flicks, and documentaries. Celluloid-caretakers curate a collection of reels that seldom see screenings elsewhere in Chicago, frequently enjoying their city debut within the intimate 125-seat theater.
