At drive-in theaters, 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 Groupon: for $10, you get two adult movie tickets to a movie of your choice at ShowPlace Icon Theatre in St. Louis Park (up to a $20 value). Today’s deal is not valid for 3-D films, VIP seating, or special engagements.
A modern take on the classic movie-going experience, ShowPlace Icon Theatre takes the legwork out of dinner and a movie by pairing comfortable sophisticated theaters with upscale, on-location dining, and advanced reserved seating. With digital cinema projectors capable of displaying 35 trillion colors and premium digital surround-sound systems, each stadium-seated auditorium is equipped to showcase buzz-worthy films exactly as the director, assistant director, second-assistant director, and second second-assistant director intended. Patrons to the theater pick their viewing spots ahead of time, eliminating the usual frenzied, darkened search for ideal seating and guaranteeing guests find seats together.
Comfortable amenities, such as contemporary detailing, and an absence of prefilm commercials complete the upscale atmosphere, complemented by a chic lobby lounge. Conceived by restaurant impresario Jerry Kleiner, designer of popular Chicago nightspot Carnivale, the lounge allows guests to engage in pre- and post-movie mingling over cocktails and fashionable film fare extending beyond the typical Milk Duds and nacho-cheese combination.
- Great seating, great audio, great food, great everything. The parking is ramp parking which is kinda nice because you'll never have to walk to far to get in from the cold weather. – Ryan P., Yelp, 1/13/11
- This is absolutely my first choice when seeing a movie on the weekend, especially an opening feature. No more showing up 60 minutes early to guarantee a seat that won't won't hurt your neck. – Google Maps reviewer who posted on 4/26/10
