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 $10, you get $20 worth of movie and video game rentals and purchases at Movie Vault in Lawrenceburg.
Movie Vault's shelves are stocked with classic and recently released silver-screen productions. New releases flicker inside living rooms on DVD ($4.99+) and Blu-ray ($14.99+) before online and kiosk vendors get their digital claws on them. Patrons can rent or purchase flicks making their video-store debut, including Horrible Bosses—a dark comedy in which the wacky cast members plot to murder their contemptuous managers—or Zookeeper—in which a zoo guru discovers he can communicate and play chess with his animal compatriots. Bursting forth from vivid screens, 3-D selections, such as Green Lantern 3-D, dazzle eyes with lifelike forms appearing to break through the pixel-limiting screen to saunter into homes. Viewers coveting their rentals can transfer remaining balances to a gift card to use on future visits.
