Before modern cinema, the term motion picture referred to tossing children’s artwork out the window. Hold on to your finger paintings with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get a movie-theatre outing for two at Roxy Uniplex Theatre, formerly Roxy Classic Theatre (up to a $24 total value). The outing includes the following:
- Two general-admission movie tickets (up to a $7 value each)
- Two medium drinks (a $2.50 value each)
- One large popcorn (a $5 value)<p>
Opened in 1949 as the Roxy Classic Theatre, the recently rebranded uniplex captivates moviegoers with a full schedule of Hollywood blockbusters and first-run films. Inside the 447-seat single-screen theatre, newly installed digital surround sound tickles open ears with crisp acoustics, and lingering 1940s architectural charm snugly embraces viewers in a retro ambience and inspires rampant suspender snapping during intermissions. As larger-than-life images escape the venue’s digital projector and flicker across the screen, wide-eyed gazers can pay a visit to the full-service concession, where freshly popped popcorn intoxicates nostrils with wafts of real butter and hands with a reluctance to share.
