Independent theaters screen obscure movies not shown in most mainstream auditoriums, such as experimental art student films and Die Hard presented with Wing Dings subtitles. Expand your cinematic palate with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get two movie tickets (up to a $15 value) and two large popcorns (a $10 value) at Little Art Theatre in Yellow Springs (up to a $25 total value).
Nestled in a snug turquoise storefront, the Little Art Theatre festoons its silver screen with independent flicks and films helmed by local auteurs. Cineastes can treat peepers to current and upcoming features, such as the Ewan McGregor–starring dramedy Beginners, or Buck, a moving documentary about Buck Brannaman, the inspiration for The Horse Whisperer and its sequel The Horse Whisperer 2: Whisper Harder. Crafted by an artist more than 50 years ago, six stoic houselights preside over enraptured audiences cushioned in the intimate 180-seat theater. Two cartons of buttery popcorn grease up thumbs for swift up-or-down critiquing, and curious patrons can eat while pondering the projector room’s celluloid secrets.
