Before modern cinema, the term motion picture referred to tossing children’s artwork out the window.

The Flying Dog Brewery Movie Series combines classic cult flicks with a laid-back happy hour of craft libations in the beautiful Weinberg Center for the Arts. Featuring such comic legends as Bill Murray, Chevy Chase, and Rodney Dangerfield, Caddyshack expertly caresses funny bones with golf-themed farce. The film weaves together the interlocking stories of a deranged groundskeeper, a bored playboy, and a gauche real-estate developer as they engage in improvised witticisms, physical comedy, and goofy dialogue, complete with a dancing gopher and the omniscient voice of Kenny Loggins booming down from the clouds. Popcorn and soda keep tongues happy with sweet and savory tastes while eyes feast on big-screen magic.
Starting an hour before the projector starts rolling, the happy hour features tasting specials and Flying Dog beers ($3 each, not included with this Groupon). While wetting whistles, patrons can mingle with fellow movie aficionados, engaging in sparkling repartee and organizing heated games of duck, duck, goose. Built in 1926, the Weinberg’s luxurious interior provides ideal atmosphere for both preshow drinks and appreciative movie viewing, with elegantly tiled floors, sparkling chandeliers, and plush red seats.
Weinberg Center for the Arts
When Dan and Alyce Weinberg purchased the Tivoli in the late 1950s, they imagined its ornate chandeliers and sweeping ceilings watching over concerts and performances that would keep the auditorium as full as it was in the theater's 1920s heyday. After a devastating flood in 1976 almost decimated the space, the Weinbergs and other community members restored the historic theater, which now flourishes as a home for live entertainment, films, and the performing arts.
