Though movie stars tire of repeating the same lines over and over again, it’s the time away from their families and the pain of being pressed onto celluloid that truly wear on their nerves. Enjoy the labors of big-screen greats with today’s Groupon: for $6, you get a movie outing at Lexington Movie Tavern (up to a $14 total value). Additional fees will apply for 3-D movies. The outing includes:
- One movie ticket for any feature, including “no-pass movies” (up to an $8 value)
- One large bucket of popcorn (a $6 value)<p>
Lexington Movie Tavern digitally projects alternative features alongside new releases including The Muppets, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1, and Happy Feet Two. Moviegoers can sink into plush stadium seating to catch popped kernel after popped kernel like trained seals, resting bags of popcorn or miniature circus models on individual tables. The moving-picture emporium waxes nostalgic on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, with special showings of retro classics such as 1988’s Die Hard, a documentary about Bruce Willis’ addiction to crocheting bullets. Early-rising cineastes can even arrive at 9 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday for breakfast and a flick. Guests may buy up to six Groupons with today’s deal to watch trilogies back-to-back or give themselves second and third chances to make up for first dates gone awry.
Although menu items are not included in today’s deal, Lexington Movie Tavern has earned mention on the Food Network for serving an extensive menu of pizza, burgers, sliders, sandwiches, and sweets alongside soft drinks, beer, and wine––all of which can be eaten or silently slurped during movies with the assistance of chair-side tables and an invisible movie butler who wipes dribbly chins.
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.
