Movies are like dreams: they come to us in the dark, they play on our subconscious fears and desires, and the best ones prominently feature Hall of Fame baseball players lecturing children on how to have fun in small towns. Dream a little dream on the big silver screen with today's Groupon: for $5, you get a movie ticket and soda at Studio Movie Grill. Today’s Groupon is valid at Studio Movie Grill’s locations in Dallas, Arlington, Lewisville, and Plano. Movies in 3-D may incur an additional fee.
Studio Movie Grill alloys the audiovisual entertainment of the silver screen with the hearty flavors of full meals delivered directly to movie-theater seats. Blocks bust as new releases such as Real Steel (opening October 7) and Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 1 (opening November 18) settle into projectors, providing fresh celluloid entertainment for audiences and drawing cat calls from retired reel-to-reels.
The theater sets aside afternoons and evenings to enliven the big screen with seldom seen alternative and specialty films, such as the upcoming documentary Forks Over Knives, and hefty servings of kid-friendly programming capture squirming passengers in cushioned seats for an engaging narrative ride. The caffeinated, carbonated companionship of a soda can help to keep guests awake through long postscreening conversations about gangster-movie references in The Little Mermaid.
Although not included with today’s Groupon, the grill caters tasty meals to sate rapt audiences’ appetites. A complimentary light illuminates an extensive menu of options, from the spinach-mushroom quesadilla ($10.95) to the petite burger bites ($10.25).
