  • Dealflicks
    Did you know that, on average, 88% of the seats in a movie theater remain empty during a showing? According to the New York Times, this phenomenon really surprised Sean Wycliffe a few years back when he went to see the Oscar-winning film The King's Speech and shared the theater with only two other audience members. With all the focus on online video services, Sean realized movie theaters were being overlooked, and came up with a concept that could help movie houses fill their empty seats. His brainchild became Dealflicks, a website that offers customers discounted tickets (sometimes with popcorn or soda) for same-day showings. Customers shop a selection of deals, each of which is specific to a particular film, theater, and showtime, and upon purchase, receive an email voucher they present at the theater's ticket counter. Dealflicks is partnered with theaters around the country, particularly independent and neighborhood venues, such as the treehouse of the enterprising kid down the street.

  • Geoff Tate
    After three decades as lead singer of renowned progressive-metal band Queensr?che, Geoff Tate shows fans a strummier side on his West Coast acoustic tour. Tate turns his mellifluous pipes on an unplugged set that includes songs from his 2002 self-titled solo album, Queensr?che classics, and Andrew Lloyd Webber favorites. The stripped-down style brings Tate's famously brooding voice and complex melodies, along with a less expected sense of groove, to the fore. The show opens with an acoustic trio led by special guest Jaime Kyle, who has written songs for luminaries including Faith Hill. Originally a movie palace, the art deco Uptown Theatre Napa evokes the splendor of Hollywood's golden age, and the auditorium's 860 plush seats keep guests comfy during concerts and postshow discussions with ushers over the semantics of the phrase "you have to leave."

  • Roxy Stadium 14
    The independently owned Roxy Stadium 11 regales patrons with the flickering pictures and digital sounds of the latest blockbusters and the sizable snack bar. A colorful lobby greets guests as they meander past towering pillars that stretch toward an arched ceiling swathed in neon lights and bold swaths of royal blue. Aisles of cushioned auditorium seats allow moviegoers to choose the spot closest to the screen or furthest from the person sobbing emphatically during coming attractions. High-tech projectors digitally unspool films in each theater, with RealD 3-D technology transmitting some flicks in three vibrant dimensions. To silence distracting mid-movie hunger pangs, staffers in the concessions area whip up fresh batches of Orville Redenbacher popcorn and Nathan's hot dogs alongside other traditional theater fare.

  • Raven Film Center
    The typical movie theater greets guests with a wave of popcorn smell, but there's more going on in the air at Raven Film Center. You might pick up the aroma of smoked German sausage, cheese bubbling inside quesadillas, or Costeaux Bakery bread toasting in the panini press. In addition to gastropub-style eats, the concessions bar offers international and local beers, sold by the draft and bottle, and wines by the glass, bottle, or even half-bottle. The main attraction, of course, is still what's flickering across the little neon-lit theater's four screens. On any given week, you'll find the newest releases from legendary talents such as Tim Burton and Meryl Streep playing alongside other indie and art-house films and previews broadcast directly from the future.

  • The New Parkway Theater
    At The New Parkway Theater, viewers nestle into love seats or lounge on cozy couches while munching on comfort food and popcorn, a weekend viewing party writ large. If its owners had their way, the biggest difference between a friend's house and their theater would be the size of the screen. Conceived as a community space, New Parkway's colorful cafe and couch-filled screening rooms encourage showgoers to make friends, sitting with strangers and striking up conversations with particularly interesting throw pillows. An ever-changing schedule reinforces the space's sense of discovery, constantly cycling through indie darlings, classic flicks, and second-run blockbusters. The menu of comfort food comes out of the kitchen and straight to the seats, letting viewers chow down during flicks. Prepared with locally sourced ingredients, options include burgers, grilled cheese sandwiches, and spicy fries. Beer and wine selections all come from brewers and vintners within 100 miles of Oakland.
