What You'll Get
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 $10, you get two brew and view tickets and a medium popcorn at the Palace Theater, located on James Street (up to a $24 value).
Grab a film buff BFF who deserves a popcorn-enhanced night out and head to the recently renovated 1922 Palace Theater for a double-feature Brew-and-View session. At the Brew and View, celluloid lovers can enjoy Syracuse’s largest single-screen theater while indulging in a frosty beer or sipping on a glass of wine. You’ll take in two recent classics or underrated gems that were quickly forgotten after the onslaught of 3-D films and perm machine-equipped theater seats. The series starts December 5th with the 2010 historical thriller_Centurion_ and the Japenese cult classic Shogun Assassin_.

About Palace Theater
An old-fashioned marquee illuminates the entrance to the Palace Theater, its scarlet and gold light beaming just as brightly as when the venue first opened in 1922. Back then, it was a 1,300-seat neighborhood movie theater with a second-floor dine and dance ballroom. That was owner Alfred Dibella's vision, and when he passed away in 1959, he made sure the theater landed safely in the hands of his daughter, Frances.
Today, the Palace remains a family heirloom. Much like a dubstep remix of the Gettysburg Address, the current space is a mixture of modern technology and vintage appeal, retaining its architectural integrity despite updates over the years. Perhaps the biggest change has been Palace's transformation from a single-screen movie house into a multi-use event space, capable of hosting everything from rehearsal dinners to graduation ceremonies.
