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 Groupon: for $6, you get one movie ticket and a large popcorn at Lexington Movie Tavern (up to a $14 value).
Film buffs kick back on Lexington Movie Tavern's plush stadium seating as first-run movies and retro classics parade vividly across the theater-size digital-projection screen. Movie-goers can pick a flick from the schedule of show times, grab a large bag of popcorn, and settle into a comfortable seat to fix their peepers on the glowing screen. Staffers at the retrofitted movie house pour beers and margaritas from behind a wooden bar in the lounge and present a menu of chef-prepared sandwiches, pizzas, and desserts. Meals, though not included with this Groupon, arrive at the individual tables at each moviegoer's seat, making sure viewers don't miss a single action scene, plot thread, or Teddy Roosevelt cameo. Blockbuster aficionados can catch a first-run film and early birds can awaken their senses with the 9 a.m. Breakfast and a Flick series, which supplements silver-screen action with pancakes, french toast, and coffee.
Lexington Movie Tavern
Movie Tavern transfixes one's taste buds and imagination by blending all-digital cinema with premium seating and sit-down dining. Moviegoers are encouraged to arrive 45 minutes prior to showtime, so that they can leisurely peruse an extensive menu of chef-inspired American cuisine, from kobe beef sliders to pizza and sandwiches. Nimble and unobtrusive servers slip in during the show to deliver orders, and can be called on for more drinks or dessert with the push of a button. At select locations, guests can opt to sip margaritas or signature cocktails at the bar before heading in to see a show. Audiences get to enjoy first-run films every week, retro cinema every Wednesday morning as well as Tuesday and Thursday evenings, and breakfast food paired with early morning movies on Saturdays and Sundays. The family-friendly establishment also serves finger food for kiddies along with film-inspired dishes. Guests can head to the bar or straight to the movie without ordering food, giving them some latitude in shaping their night out.
Additionally, Movie Tavern treats audiences to myriad benefits with their membership program. Anyone can sign up for free online to receive one free bag of popcorn on the spot and one free ticket every year on their birthday, as well as invites to screenings and other special events.
