Mary Riepma Ross Media Arts Center - Lincoln: $5 for $10 Toward Cinema Admission and Concessions at the Mary Riepma Ross Media Arts Center

The first moving picture, which depicted a horse running at full gallop, was quickly enhanced by the first special effects, which showed a horse exploding next to a 3-D spaceship. Enjoy advances in film with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 toward cinema admission and movie-accompanying snacks at the Mary Riepma Ross Media Arts Center, a repertory cinema on the University of Nebraska-Lincoln campus.

The Ross plays host to critically acclaimed foreign and independent films, comfortable and acoustically impressive facilities, and naturally polite audiences that almost never need to be shushed. It features two cozy theaters that can collectively seat nearly 350 people, which is a large enough audience that well-timed unison gasps and "don't go in there!"s can actually impact a character’s future decisions. Today’s Groupon is good for any combination of admission and concessions, and you can use it over one or two visits. Upcoming attractions include Cairo Time, a romantic drama chronicling a brief, unexpected love affair between a traveling fashion magazine editor and a security officer in Egypt, and Last Train Home, Chinese filmmaker Lixin Fan's celebrated documentary that explores the epic Chinese New Year migration on an intimate scale. The theater welcomes guests for both evening showings ($9 adults; $6.50 students and children; $7 seniors and military; $6 members) and matinees ($7 adults; $6 students, children, and military; $6.50 seniors; $5.50 members). After purchasing your ticket, use what remains of your $10 toward brain-expanding movie candy, or save it for next time’s admission.

The Ross, like the flagship university with which it shares a campus, aims to open the minds of Nebraska’s film-loving public, and unlike some of its more sinister competitors, it does so without resorting to _Clockwork Orange_–like eyelid clamps or unsanctioned lobotomies during the trailers. Use today’s Groupon to the Ross theater for a tranquilly solitary trip to the cinema, or to automatically boost a date night’s romance levels with the amorous power of subtitles.
