At drive-in theaters, the best seats are reserved for punctual elitists and fashionably late monster trucks. Avoid the perils of Hobbesian parking battles by settling into a cozy seat with today's Groupon: for $6, you get one movie ticket (a $6 value for children/seniors/matinees, an $8.75 value for adults) and a large popcorn (a $6.25 value) at Movie Tavern, located in Tucker (up to a $15 total value including tax).
Recently showcased on CBS Atlanta, Movie Tavern caters to dinner-and-a-movie fans by showing big-screen adventures while serving popcorn, pizzas, burgers, beer, and more to celluloid spectators at their seats. Inside Movie Tavern's clean and welcoming facilities, blockbusters vie for showtimes, with upcoming films including the adventure-packed Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, a 3-D film featuring Johnny Depp sailing the seas in search of his long-lost washing machine. Waiters deliver carefully selected menu munchables to tabled seats, allowing guests to relax with their large, refillable popcorns nestling comfortably nearby. Should buttery bites get the best of dry mouths, the theater boasts a large supply of bottled and draft beers ($3.75 domestic, $4.25 premium), as well as frozen wine margaritas ($5.75) and milk shakes ($3.75).
It's a good idea to arrive early at Movie Tavern, and not only if you hate missing the opening credits. Early birds can peruse the extensive menu of chef-crafted American cuisine, from kobe beef sliders to pizza and sandwiches. But even after the show begins, the snacks keep coming. 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. Guests can even sip margaritas or signature cocktails at the full bar before heading in to the theater. The family-friendly establishment also serves finger food for kiddies.
As for the entertainment, audiences get to enjoy all-digital presentations of first-run films any day of the week, plus Retro Cinema every Wednesday morning at 11:30 a.m. as well as Tuesday and Thursday evenings at 7:30 p.m. Audiences also benefit from Movie Tavern's membership program. Anyone can sign up for free online to receive one free bag of popcorn, plus a free ticket every year on their birthday, special offers, movie news, and invites to screenings and other special events.
