Filmmaker Jean-Luc Godard once said, "The cinema is truth at 24 frames per second," making slo-mo sports replays and sped-up Benny Hill gags nothing but cruel, cruel lies. Get the real deal with today's Groupon: for $10, you get two movie tickets ($6 each), two drinks (beer, wine, or soda, $4 each), and popcorn ($5) at The Screening Room Cinema Café (a $25 total value) in Amherst.

The Screening Room Cinema Café provides an upscale and sophisticated movie-going experience where visitors can view indie, classic, and art-house flicks from small café tables instead of behind cut-out eye slots of creepy wall-mounted paintings. Use the two tickets to sit back and marvel at the emotive acting featured in one of the scheduled films, such as the upcoming screening of the original The Wicker Man, which has been dubbed “the Citizen Kane of horror films.” While noshing on popcorn and enjoying a thirst quencher, memories of candy-coated multiplex seats and soda-soaked fire-escape stairs will vanish into forgotten, VHS-taped memories.

Not valid during special events.

The Screening Room Cinema Cafe

The theater at The Screening Room Cinema Cafe bears more of a resemblance to an intimate club than a multiplex, seating its guests at small tables so they can sip on beer and wine during films. The floor-level screen flashes with arthouse cinema, including new indie flicks and cult favorites, as well as classics from cinematic giants such as Alfred Hitchcock and Steven Spielberg. In addition to its usual screenings, the café also hosts poetry nights, film festivals, and high-definition broadcasts of sports games recorded by a mascot with a giant camera for a head.

The Screening Room is a great place to go to see a move and relax without a crowd. You can sit back and relax as if you were in the comfort of your own home. The snacks are great too!
