Watching a movie gives audiences a chance to capture that moment’s resonant je ne sais quoi, which is French for “popcorn smell.” Rejoice in artful concessions with today's Groupon: for $15, you get a movie night for two at Pickwick Theatre in Park Ridge. The package includes two general-admission movie tickets (up to a $7 value each), two small popcorns (a $4 value each), and two small drinks (a $3 value each; a $28 total value). This Groupon expires in two months.
The historic Pickwick Theatre's Art Deco exterior welcomes moviegoers in monolithic style before ensconcing 1,400 viewers within the massive Mesoamerican-themed main auditorium. The 100-foot tower and classic movie-theatre marquee beckons film buffs to enter and watch movies now playing from early afternoon to late evening. With two small popcorns and drinks, pairs can enjoy the movie with zero worries about remembering how to share or having to buff up on proper popcorn-holding protocols. Upcoming attractions include 30 Minutes or Less, a comedy starring Jesse Eisenberg and Aziz Ansari, Final Destination 5, the next horrifying installment in the ongoing horror series, and One Day, a romance starring Anne Hathaway.
In 2010, the Pickwick was designated as a Landmark Building, the first historic landmark noted by the city of Park Ridge.
Pickwick Theatre, home to one of the Chicago area’s largest theaters, showcases the latest Hollywood blockbusters inside a historic, registered-landmark building. Patrons flood their visual and aural receptors with the theater’s current list of films displayed on one of three screens, including an expansive main auditorium that seats 1,000 people or mannequins comically brought to life. Popcorn and soda keep bodily hungers sated throughout films' airtime and prevent stomach growls from interrupting key dialogue.
