Watching a movie on the big screen makes audience members feel like they’re really there with the characters, especially during climactic popcorn-eating scenes. Chew and view with today’s Groupon: for $17, you get a movie outing for two at Jurupa 14 Cinemas in Riverside (up to a $35.75 total value). The outing includes:
- Two movie tickets (up to an $8.50 value each)
- One extra-large popcorn (a $6.25 value)
- Two large sodas (a $4.50 value each)
- One large candy (a $3.50 value)<p>
Within a circular, art-deco-inspired structure peering out behind tiers of palm trees, Jurupa 14 Cinemas beckons moviegoers to its picturesque confines for a variety of cinematic adventures. Twosomes stock up at the concessions stand, juggling popcorn, sodas, and candy boxes before settling into their seats. Audiences then immerse themselves in new releases such as The Vow, a romance about marriage after memory loss, or The Descendants, a docudrama examining the lives of escalator repairmen. Showtimes treat film buffs to a weekly smattering of late-morning screenings, matinees, and evening selections diverse enough to fit each individual schedule.
As soon as they've hatched, the newest Hollywood movies have a home on Tristone Cinemas' screens. First they arrive at Terra Vista 6 Cinemas and Jurupa 14 Cinemas, a location that also houses a lounge pouring out beer and wines. After the flicks have thoroughly entertained eyes at both theaters, they move to Tristone's three other movie houses. But Brea Plaza 5 Cinemas, Simi Valley 10 Cinemas, and Temeku Cinemas don't just specialize in second-run showings—they also present the occasional classic film in its twenty-fifth, fiftieth, or three-hundredth showing.
