What You'll Get
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 $15, you get two movie tickets and two soda and popcorn combos (up to a $29.50 value) at Moxie Cinema.
The Moxie is a central hub for independent and classic cinema, specializing in celluloid of the funky, offbeat, and arty distinctions. The diverse film list includes thought-provoking flicks that span the genres and ages, with everything from Rubber—a recently screened modern flick about a villainous tire—to vintage film noirs such as Humphrey Bogart's The Big Sleep (showing Saturday, May 14), to the all-penguin remake of Citizen Kane (tickets up to an $8 value each). The deal’s combo package also delivers cinematic sustenance via two fountain soft drinks (a $3.50 value each) and two popcorns (a $3.25 value each) from the theater’s cinebar. Though most theaters use popcorn to meet the state-mandated liquid-butter minimum, the Moxie elevates kernel-cooking to an art worthy of its film selection, topping morsels with 13 distinct flavors, including barbecue, ranch, jalapeño, and apple cinnamon.
The Moxie wages a theatrical swordfight against corrupting technology by showing almost all its movies on traditional 35mm film stock, scratching a Z into the digital age and riding off into a scroll of credits. The theater’s cozy setup is ideal for enjoying movie magic with a handful of cinephiles, getting close to someone special, or keeping an eye on the woman in front with a pointy black hat, striped socks, and ruby slippers.
