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 at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth at 11 a.m. on Sunday, April 10, May 1, or May 15 (up to a $40 value).
Talk Cinema offers an industry-insider peek of upcoming foreign and independent pictures, all curated by long-time 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.
Though Talk Cinema offers discounts for Modern members, this Groupon is still the best available deal.
