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 $25, you get a take-10 ticket good for 10 individual admissions to the Dryden Theatre at George Eastman House. This historic theatre boasts a cinematic cache of film treasures, including more than 300 screenings by well-known auteurs, silent films, cult classics, and premieres of new foreign and independent films. Catch films such as The Maltese Falcon, Westside Story , and Aliens. Savor a suspense injection with Strangers on a Train —a masterpiece by the "master of buddy comedy" Alfred Hitchcock—or ring in the new year with the exceedingly strange The Beast Pageant, made by Dryden's very own Albert Bierney and Jon Moses. The take-10 ticket acts as 10 individual admissions to the Dryden Theatre viewings, so customers can treat themselves to ten different shows or pair them up for five first dates—or last dates, depending on how many times you quote Tolkien in the original Elvish.
