The Fine Print

Cinematic technology has come a long way since the days when families would dive out of the way of trains moving toward the camera and watch Charlie Chaplin silently shout wall-to-wall obscenities, but the joys of the silver screen remain the same. Celebrate the time-honored tradition of a night at the movies with the latest tech and today's Groupon. For $9, you get two general-admission tickets to a screening of your choice at the Santikos Embassy 14 Theatres (up to an $18 value).

The Santikos Embassy 14 has kept up with the latest advancements while still preserving the pleasures of the movie-going experience, though the establishment is still fine-tuning an electro-magnetic pulse that will disable phones from texting. Most of the theaters now project film digitally, ensuring a crisp, clear image with no more blinking black dots in the corner or irrational fears that the film will jam and release its CGI monsters into the real world. The only thing you and your family will need to worry about is achieving perfectly timed restroom trips. The seats have also been renovated with improved rocker seating, making it easier for high-school dates to wrap their arm around an unsuspecting shoulder under the pretense of an inconspicuous yawn. Likewise, the concession area has added a Starbucks Coffee and baristas to its lineup of pizza, pastries, and popcorn. With an improved interior and superior picture quality, the Santikos Embassy 14 will provide an evening of romance, horror, or romantic horror for families and friends alike.

If a picture is worth 1,000 words, then a projected film is worth 1,000 words multiplied by 24 frames per second, rendering a digitally projected film worth its weight in megabytes. Hence, it is priceless, or worthless, depending on how much of it was directed by Michael Bay. Enjoy the latest priceless moving artwork at Santikos Embassy 14 Theatres with a fellow film buff and today's Groupon.

This Groupon is not good for special engagements or showtimes listed with the "no passes" symbol. 3-D showings can be purchased for an additional $2.50.

Reviews

Five Citysearchers give the Santikos Embassy 14 a five-star average. Yahoo! Local users give it an average of 3.5 stars:

  • Santikos Embassy Theatre is family-oriented, as well as comfortable and clean. The early evening prices are quite a bargain for first-run movies, and for school kids with small allowances. What I like the most is the free summer movie program for kids. They show a different movie every week, and they show a good variety of movies for different ages. The theatre may not be as large and distinguished as others, but the customer service is exceptional! – aprilsmama, Citysearch
  • This is our favorite theater --- best popcorn and fastest service -- hardly any waiting to get a ticket and fast service at the refreshment counter -- how ingenious to give you your own cup to fill up yourself! – Karen, Yahoo! Local

Santikos Theatres

Greek immigrant Louis Santikos founded his first movie theater in San Antonio in 1911, when silent moving pictures of train robberies and slapstick comedy were an exciting novelty. Today, the thriving regional theater empire continues the family tradition of dazzling audiences with attractions such as IMAX sensory journeys.

Santikos's expansive theaters house up to 19 screens of first-run cinematic entertainment at some locations. Equipped with popcorn and sodas, moviegoers can nervously munch and sip their way through every pulse-pounding car chase, tragic missed connection, or gripping montage of drying paint. Screenings in 3-D of select films are brought to life by the gloriously immersive illuminations of Xpand 3-D projectors.

Love this place

Recently visited The Rialto Santikos Theatre in San Antonio. The service, cleanliness, and refreshment options were the top best things about the Theatre. What I also liked was the height of the food bars in the theaters because they were low enough for my children to see over them.The wait staff did not interrupt the showing but were available anytime throughout the show for service. I highly recommend!
