According to national polls, feature films are the fourth most-popular type of film after cling film, pond scum, and pudding skin. Scratch beyond the surface with today's Groupon: for $20, you get two tickets to a Talk Cinema screening in Niles or Chicago (a $40 value).

Talk Cinema offers an industry-insider peek of upcoming foreign and independent pictures, all curated by longtime film critic Harlan Jacobson. Guests receive the indiscreet honor of previewing the freshest films, followed by a discussion led by a guest speaker who might be a notable critic, a filmmaker, or an artisanal popcorn chef. Attendees have no prior knowledge of the day's screening, giving viewers a roulette of genres to experience, including psychological thrillers, romantic dramas, and heart-warming documentaries on the evolution of ice-cube trays. All shows start at 10 a.m., with doors opening at 9:30 a.m.

Though Talk Cinema offers $10 tickets for full-time students with ID, this Groupon still represents the best deal for most buyers.

Harlan Jacobson is giving it a good shot with Talk Cinema, a subscription movie club designed to give audiences a sneak peek at films that have yet to be released. – Scott Helman, Chicago Tribune
