NFL Films highlight reels show crowd-thrilling catches, Cowboys championship moments, and the plays when the losing team dresses up a grizzly bear as an offensive guard. Take in the best of the best with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get a ticket to an NFL Player Highlight film showing with live commentary from star Dallas athletes, hosted by Sportz Partnerz (a $30 value). The event rotates between Studio Movie Grill locations in Arlington, Dallas, Lewisville, and Plano on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Commentary from the Dallas Mavericks’ Chris Arnold and the Dallas Cowboys’ three-time champion Kevin Smith enlivens a schedule of NFL highlights shows presented by the Sportz Dreamz Foundation. Attendees walk the red carpet and pose with the event's hosts before nestling into first-come, first-served seating and crossing their fingers to win door prizes of autographed sports memorabilia, such as signed copies of locker-room hangman sessions. Arnold and Smith are joined by special guests from time to time, which in the past have included former Cowboys Darren Woodson, Jay Novacek, Rocket Ismail, Larry Brown, Chad Hennings, hall-of-famer Mel Renfro, and many others. After sharing their behind-the-scenes insights during roughly one-hour shows, Arnold and Smith mingle with the crowd, scribbling autographs for enraptured fans and posing for snapshots. Patrons leave with complimentary official membership cards, brimming with $50 worth of vouchers toward future Sportz Partnerz events, dinners at Sportz Partnerz-affiliated restaurants, or courtside seats during the entire NBA offseason. Proceeds from ticket sales go to bolster Dallas- and Fort Worth–area youth athletics programs supported by the Sportz Dreamz Foundation.
