While 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 wears on their nerves. Enjoy the labors of big screen greats with today's Groupon: for $6, you get one movie ticket and one large popcorn at Movie Tavern (up to a $14.75 value). This Groupon is valid at the Richey Road Movie Tavern and Willowbrook Movie Tavern in Houston and the Deerbrook Movie Tavern in Humble. Additional fees will apply to 3-D movies.
Movie Tavern shows alternative features alongside new releases including The Muppets, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part One, and The Immortals. Sink into plush stadium seating at the location of your choice to catch popped kernel after popped kernel like a trained seal, resting bags of popcorn or miniature circus models on individual tables. Show times vary by theater, so be sure to check before you go. Guests may buy up to six Groupons with today’s deal to watch trilogies back-to-back or give themselves a second and third chance to make up for a first date gone awry.
While menu items are not included in today's deal, Movie Tavern has earned mention on the Food Network for serving an extensive array of pizza, burgers, and more 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. Menus and prices vary by location.
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.
