What You'll Get
Filmmaker Jean Luc-Godard once said, "The cinema is truth at 24 frames per second," making slow-mo sports replays and sped-up Benny Hill gags nothing but cruel, cruel lies. Get the real deal with today's Groupon: for $9, you get one movie ticket, plus a specialty coffee and dessert, to The Little Theatre (a $19 value), an independent movie theater in the East End. This Groupon is not valid toward special events at the theater.
The Little Theatre brings a roster of reel wonders to Rochester, with a slate of films running the gamut from quirkily mainstream to accessibly indie. Use your ticket for one of the upcoming features appearing on The Little's five screens, such as the Colin Farrell sea-nymph fantasy Ondine or the backwoods nightmare noir Winter's Bone; a slew of other silver-screen selections are sure to satisfy moviegoers from all walks of taste. The Little's 70-seat, jazz-infused café pitches in to delight the less movie-centric senses of taste, spider, and smell, with a specialty coffee such as a macchiato ($2.25) or mocha ($3.50) and the café's daily dessert special included in this deal.
Originally opened in 1929, The Little Theatre continues to mesmerize movie maniacs with its Art Deco origins and modern stereophonic sound equipment. It currently operates as a non-profit venture. Enjoy big-screen bravado in small-scale and intimate settings with a faceful of film watching at The Little.
- There is a nice cafe you can visit before or after the show which often features live music. Many films play here that do not show at some of the bigger theaters. If you're looking to watch a movie in a place with a little more character than your average theater, then this is the place to visit. – Laura T., Insider Pages
- THE LITTLE is the hippest cultural place in all of Rochester. It anchors Rochester's vibrant East End with the best in independent and foreign films, jazz, art, fine foods and desserts, wines, beers and coffees. – Tom P., Insider Pages
- The concession stand sells much more than generic movie candy - you can get a cup of chocolate mousse! How awesome is that?! It's delicious, especially if you are watching a French film and want to add to the arty ambiance. – agnes b., Yelp
