According to a press release, Groupon, the global leader in online local commerce has entered new territory by offering its first-ever digital download movie. And it was shot right here in Wilmywood! Back in the fall of 2013, Terry Jastrow along with his wife Ann Archer graced us with their presence and brought the golf caper, The Squeeze, to the Port City. And….they have released the trailer. It looks like an AWESOME movie. Check it out!
The offer is available in two separate packages. Customers can either order the movie plus Tom Watson’s “Lessons of a Lifetime” DVD set, the most popular golf instructional video ever, for $19.99 (a $47.95 value), or the movie plus a tee time in their area via EZ Link, America’s largest tee time company, for $13.99 (a $28 value).
While Groupon has previously offered movie tickets to buy and use at the local cinema, this is the first time it’s offering a first-run movie as digital download for the general public to buy and screen at home. So yeah, we’re making history!
Groupon customers can look for this special offer April 16th in selected cities. There will be an even broader offering a few days later. Those not currently Groupon users can simply go to Groupon.com, follow the instructions, and become a member. There is no obligation. READ MORE NOW

Robertson will be presented with this special honor at the “CinemaCon Big Screen Achievement Awards” ceremony to take place on Thursday evening, April 23, in The Colosseum at Caesars Palace. The press release has some REALLY nice things to say about our original Domie!
“With an already stellar resume under her belt Britt Robertson has proven to critics and audiences alike that she has an undeniable talent and ability to hold her own with some of the most proclaimed actors and actresses of our generation,” noted Neuhauser. “With her upcoming role in Tomorrowland Robertson will once again showcase that she is a force to be reckoned with and we could not be more thrilled to present her with this year’s ‘CinemaCon 2015 Star of Tomorrow Award.’” READ MORE NOW
