When wearing 3-D glasses, a movie villain may look like he's reaching right for you, and a movie date may look like they're reaching right for your wallet. Protect yourself from devious dates with today's Groupon to Hollywood Blvd. Cinema and its new adjoining restaurant, Formosa Cafe, in Woodridge. Choose from the following options:
- For $8, you get two general-admission tickets to Hollywood Blvd. Cinema (a $16 value). This Groupon is not valid for the opening weekend of any new title. Customers can upgrade to 3-D movies for an additional charge at the box office.
- For $15, you get $30 worth of authentic Chinese cuisine and drinks at Formosa Cafe.
Hollywood Blvd. rolls out the red carpet to its patrons by offering a full-service restaurant, bar, and movie theater—all rolled into one experience. With two general-admission tickets, you and a fellow film fanatic will get entry to a movie currently showing at the Tinseltown-themed cineplex. Unlike other movie theaters, where guests are corralled into squeaky, gum-covered seats with views of the screen blocked by a statue of the mayor, Hollywood Blvd. gives its guests spacious, terraced seating, with executive leather chairs and full tables. The theater's lobby is an attraction in itself, decorated to resemble the famous intersection of Hollywood and Vine and Grauman's Chinese Theater.
At the adjoining Formosa Cafe, visitors are treated to authentic Chinese lunch and dinner cuisine crafted from fresh ingredients. Adding fare to flair in true Hollywood Blvd. style, grub is served on tables formed from 300-year-old Chinese palace doors, while the friendly bartenders sling signature drinks in front of a 4-ton saltwater aquarium. Sate cravings for the cruciferous or the crustaceous by starting a meal with Nanjing chicken lettuce wraps ($6) or Dr. Fu Manchu's crab rangoon ($8). Follow up with traditional pork or beef chop suey ($12) or solicit advice from a bowl of Confucious fried rice, which can be paired with your choice of protein ($9–$12). Once fuel tanks have been filled, try to predict this year's Oscar winners with the help of an after-dinner fortune cookie, or by concentrating on walls lined with more than 300 authentic Hollywood autographs signed by Hollywood Blvd.'s visiting celebrities.
This Groupon is only valid at the Woodridge location.
- I had a blast at this theatre! The experience was better than the movie itself!. – officespace, Citysearch
