The first moving picture, which depicted a horse running at full gallop, was quickly enhanced by the first special effects, which showed a horse exploding next to a 3-D spaceship. Enjoy advances in film with today's Groupon: for $10, you get two tickets to any movie and one large popcorn at The Edge 12 Movie Theater on Crestwood Boulevard (a $25 value).
The Edge 12 projects new releases onto the silver screen as viewers recline in stadium seats and feast on popcorn and drinks. Cinephiles can attend any film screening—including 3-D showings—from atop seats whose 18-inch risers allow movie-goers to see beyond their neighbor's tri-cornered hat to the wall-to-wall screen in front of them. Settle into your high-back, rocking throne with a large popcorn, while the theater's Dolby Digital surround sound drowns out your chomps. Visitors can opt to salt and butter their own popcorn, applying their own alchemical knowhow to turn each flake into fluffy gold.
