What You'll Get
In the old days, movie tickets didn't cost an arm and a leg, and said limbs were only available from the angry, brooding Mannequin King of SoHo. Hearken back to sometime last Tuesday with today's deal: for $18, you get a pair of tickets, two sodas and two popcorns at Kew Gardens Cinemas (up to a $37 value), a historic 1930s art-deco theater.
Kew Gardens Cinemas shows a wide range of current movies, which can be viewed online. Originally called the Austin, the vintage 1930s theater has seen several ups and downs in its history, from years as a second-run double-feature house to a red-tinted stint that got it shut down by the city. In its current incarnation, the Kew's art-deco origins have been restored and updated with modern projectors and molar-rocking surround sound, as well as stadium seating, rocking-chair seats, and a concession stand stocked with fresh coffee and cookies. For a vintage movie-viewing event in style, today's deal totally beats watching Betamax tapes on your Great Uncle Vinnie's 1978 Zenith.

- I've always had an amazing experience here. The staff is friendly, I love the atmosphere, the old photos and posters, the layout and yes even the sizes of the rooms. – Simona G.
- The space is small but never packed, clean and friendly. And I always love the films they are playing there...a really great variety of foreign, indie and mainstream. – E C.
