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 $11, you get one movie ticket (a $10 value) and two sodas (a $3.75 value each) and popcorns (a $5 value each)—with unlimited refills for both—at The Nickelodeon in Santa Cruz.

"The Nick" showcases alternative, foreign, and art-house films in a theater steeped in the stylings of Hollywood. Beyond the elegant marquee lights, in a smoothly styled lobby, the walls are accented with stained-glass detailing comedy and tragedy masks. The retro chic movie house boasts two intimate and two large screens, which will soon play host to a bevy of upcoming shows. Current features include Academy Award nominees Black Swan, Another Year, The Illusionist, and Biutiful, the story of a crime boss who is diagnosed with a serious illness which forces him to reconcile his good intentions with his lawless lifestyle.


More than 40 Yelpers give The Nickelodeon an average of 4.5 stars:

  • I'm a big fan of this lovely little independent theater. They play some of the best movies and the people working there are always nice. – Murphy O., 1/2/11
  • It's really just a great place to spend an evening if you're in to pretending to be classy while watching "It's Kind of a Funny Story". Or if you really want to be cool, watch the latest controversial documentary or short film series. – Evelina E., 11/4/10
