If the stars of silent films were alive today, they would be surprised by film’s addition of sound effects and music, as well as humans’ ability to communicate without writing on title cards. Embrace modern technology with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get four movie tickets and a family combo of two large popcorns and four medium sodas at FunTime Cinemas (up to a $36 value). Use this Groupon at any of FunTime’s three locations: Colonial Park 4 in Harrisburg, South York Cinema in York, and Kendig Square Movies 6 in Willow Street. FunTime specializes in recent releases at deeply discounted prices, featuring a captivating mix of explosion-filled blockbusters and family-friendly films about why explosions do the things they do. Current films include the Coen brothers’ western True Grit, the sci-fi adventure Tron: Legacy, and the animated fairy tale Tangled, with new titles added every week. Once seated in the comfortable theater, two large bags of popcorn and four medium-sized sodas entertain easily distracted stomachs as silver-screen exploits keep attentions affixed like a shetland pony covered in honey.
While reviews are still growing for FunTime Cinemas' other locations, four Citysearchers give the Kendig Square Movies 6 location an average of 3.5 stars:
