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 8 Movie Theater on Crestwood Boulevard (up to a $25 value).
The Edge 8 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.
The Edge’s movie masters light up wall-to-wall screens with anticipated blockbusters and obscure indie flicks as guests kick back in high-backed, adjustable chairs. 18-inch risers position each row at just the right height for an unobstructed stadium-style view, and Dolby Digital surround sound systems tickle eardrums with multidimensional soundscapes. While cinephiles tuck in to tasty tidbits and delicious plotlines, moveable cup-holder armrests make it easy to stow beverages, snuggle with loved ones, or catapult beverages onto not-so-loved ones. The concessions stand sells beer and wine throughout screenings.
