At drive-in theatres, the best seats are reserved for punctual elitists and fashionably late monster trucks. Avoid the perils of Hobbesian parking battles by settling into a cozy seat with today’s deal: for $15, you get two movie tickets and a large popcorn at Fifth Avenue Cinemas (up to a $31.35 value, including HST). This Groupon is good for general admission, but you can upgrade your two tickets for 3-D shows for an extra $6 if you like.
The friendly filmwheelers at Fifth Avenue Cinemas screen an eclectic mix of mainstream hits and little-known independent flicks in their Burrard Street theatre. Your Groupon is good for two tickets plus a large serving of popcorn, blanketed in a rich coat of real butter and made from corn that contains no genetically modified organisms or evil-sauce. The theatre boasts snuggle-inducing “love seats,” in which each armrest can be raised so you and your date or anthropomorphic dachshund can cuddle throughout the film. Upcoming flicks include Philip Seymour Hoffman’s feature-film directorial debut, Jack Goes Boating, and Woody Allen’s upcoming You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger.
Going to the movies, like swimming, space travel, and masquerade balls, is one of the few opportunities the modern city folk have to escape reality and throw themselves into an imaginary world. Seize this opportunity to see the next hit or independent flick while cozying up to a cute friend with a bag full of delicious, buttery corn ghosts.
Yelpers give Fifth Avenue Cinemas a 4.5-star average rating: > * Good location with tons of pre- and post-dinner dining options within walking distance – Katie F. > * A great bonus is the fact that the armrests lift for better snuggling purposes. Awesome! – Megan G.
