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 (up to 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 know-how to turn each flake into fluffy gold.
