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 $15, you get two tickets to a Talk Cinema screening at the Napa Valley Opera House (a $30 value) on either February 10, March 10, April 7, or May 12. Though Talk Cinema offers $10 tickets for full-time students with ID, this Groupon still represents the best deal for most buyers. Both tickets must be used at the same screening.

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 7 p.m., with doors opening at 6:30 p.m.

Reviews

Talk Cinema was featured by the Chicago Tribune and received a mention from the Napa Valley Register for its December show about Casino Jack. Talk Cinema has more than 500 Facebook fans:

  • Pushing full-throttle in every direction, movie hype pervades and overpowers, steamrolling the joyful suspense of the unexpected. The question is, what can anyone do to stop it? 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
  • The Napa Valley Opera House presents its [sic] “Casino Jack” at its next “Talk Cinema” showing Thursday. Talk Cinema is a film series offering quality films curated by film critic Harlan Jacobson, a 30-year industry veteran. Showings are followed by moderated conversations hosted by a variety of critics, filmmakers and industry experts. Marilyn Fabe from UC Berkeley will moderate this discussion – Napa Valley Register
