Get the real deal with today's Groupon: for $10, you get a Movies Golden Ticket for a movie, all-you-can-eat popcorn and a soda with unlimited refills at The Movies at Montgomery Mall (up to a $21 value), located in Bethesda. Though prices vary for matinees and weekday screenings, this Groupon is valid for any non-3-D movie at any time.
From blockbuster action flicks to hybrid family comedy/existential musicals, The Movies at Montgomery Mall provides sensorial excitement for audiences of all ages and interests. The freshly renovated theaters boast extremely wide rows, complete with luxury leather high-back chairs, crisp digital projection, and cranially transcendent surround sound. Armed with the sustainable satisfaction of unlimited soda and popcorn ($12), moviegoers (up to $9 for an evening show) can stay entertained during previews, hydrated during jaw-dropping twists, and speechless after each and every chipmunk-cheeked soliloquy. If so desired, families and film buffs alike can purchase up to 10 Groupons in preparation for a full season of air-conditioned adventure.
Although The Movies at Montgomery Mall does not have many online reviews at this time due to its recent reopening as an independent theater with new management, the Washington Post profiled the theater's transition into new hands:
- The brothers upgraded all of the sound and projection systems, replaced the ratty seating with leather chairs and made the theater 3D-capable. – Danielle Douglas, Washington Post
