Like spritzing an email with cologne, blowing kisses at a movie screen is a heartfelt romantic gesture that proves fruitless in attracting movie stars. Experience unrequited love with today’s GrouponLive deal: for $10, you get a movie outing for two at the Lyric Theatre in Blacksburg (a $21.75 total value). Today’s deal includes the following:
• Two tickets to any movie screening (a $12 value).
• Two large soft drinks (a $6.50 value).
• One large popcorn (a $3.25 value).
A local landmark listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Lyric Theatre treats visitors to a rotating calendar of big-screen movies, tasty concessions, and elegant décor from the 1930s. Guests can fill their bellies with popcorn and soda as their eyes guzzle films such as Buck (August 26–September 1), the uplifting story of a real-life horse whisperer. Other recent showings have included the fantastical travel tale Midnight in Paris and The Tree of Life, in which Brad Pitt tries to repair the family tree house with only one roll of duct tape.
Teeming with more than 80 years of history, the renovated Lyric Theatre transports moviegoers to the Golden Age of film. After the credits roll, browse authentic 1930s tapestries, admire the art-deco architecture, or grab a friend and imitate the façade’s comedy and tragedy masks.
