Luxury Theaters

Pin It!

Going to the movies is one of my absolute favorite things to do. There are few dates that can top the movies in my simple little world. The regular theater, the drive-in theater and most recently...the luxury theater. If there is one near you, I would highly recommend it. A new one just opened up a few miles from our house, and they just so happen to be clients of Brandon's firm...so guess who got to go for free? Before the theater is even open to the public? We did.
Downstairs is a lounge with a bar, restaurant and coffee shop. A large flat screen was playing the basketball game and we hung out for a bit before the show.
 The theater itself was pretty awesome. Each seat is a leather recliner (that reclines almost all the way to laying position) and there is a little button on your seat that you can press for a server to come and take your order. Perhaps you want a mojito? Or a beer? Maybe a hamburger? They have a full menu and we chose the fruit fondue. Delicious.
We saw the movie Hugo, directed by Martin Scorsese, and I could never say enough about how heartwarming and magical this movie was. We had heard really great things about it, but neither of us had any clue what it was about. Do yourself a favor and see it if you haven't. It's actually based off of a book called The Invention of Hugo Cabret.

And then Sunday came around and I did nothing. Absolutely nothing, and it was lovely. I did at least shower, but then it was right back in pajamas.

This looks amazing! I wish we had a luxury theatre near by! The closest thing to a luxury theatre might be the Sundance Theatre, but it's still not half as nice as this one! What a lovely weekend!

jessica said...

wow that sounds totally badass! i love going to the movies, too. especially if i can lay down and have my own servant.

Susan said...

We just got one of these in my area but I have not heard of anyone who has gone yet though! Apparently ours has a mini bowling alley in the lounge area! I will totally have to give it a shot now!! :)

Becky said...

Wow! That looks fabulous!

Mish Lovin' Life said...

Ooh, where is this gem of a place??

Karla said...

Reminds me of the Imax theater if LA! Wow full menu? YUM!!

We have a place here in Richmond called CineBistro that has a rocking bar & outdoor patio area. The tickets are only slightly higher than the typical movie theaters & they will serve you food/drinks before the movie starts. There's no "call bell" for more waiters though, nor are there huge recliners. I'm hoping one like yours comes to Richmond soon!!

Ash said...

Elle said...

Wow!!! I don't think we have one of those here....but I would love one. That is definitely the way to do it :)

Gentri said...

Um.... WHAT?! Where do you live again?? Can I come visit? Can we go to this theater?!

Now that's how you see a movie! :)
I love movies, too!

Kristen said...

That movie theater is incredible! Unfortunately, I don't think we've got one in Alabama :(

Sarah Kate said...

I've never heard of a place like that! Amazing!!! So you get to eat in your recliner while watching the movie?!? That's insane!!!

ginanorma said...

That kind of reminds me of a theater we were in in Paris, super super fancy! Thanks for sharing!!!

Amanda C. said...

I really wish we had one of those. All you get at our theatres is over priced soda and gum on your shoe.

vickichristine said...

Sounds like a great night! I agree that a movie date tops pretty high on the great date list :) This theater looks amazing!! Hopefully Toronto gets one soon ;)

Britt said...

I love going to nice theaters. There is something about it. My husband and I saw Hugo this weekend too. It was awesome. I loved it.

Christine said...

You guys got a sneak peak?? lucky lady! that looks like so much fun!

laurenjeanallece said...

This place looks amazing! I used to work at a similar kind of theater here in Portland, but this one has us topped by miles!

And now a burger and a mojito sound delicious :)

i love your outfit first and foremost!! that knit hat is adorable on you. and how cool i need to find a luxury theatre to visit, just this weekend my husband said i wish i could grab a beer when i was at a movie theatre.

Emily Hope said...

Hmmm?! Everything is seriously better in California. I am not sure if there is a luxury cafe around here - however I am going to go on a mission to find one.

Kasey Lynne said...

We have one of these up here in Anaheim near Disneyland..and it is SO rad!

And what's the first movie I saw at this luxury theater? Toy Story 3.

Badass.

Rolled Up Pretty said...

Oh my gosh this looks AMAZING!!! I wish they had one here! :)

Brooke said...

here they call them the VIP theatres I LOVE going!
it's totally worth the extra few $$ to have someone bring you a lovely cocktail to your leather recliner seat that you got to reserve in advance so you didn't have to fight for good seats! :) SO FUN!

Rachael said...

We went to see 'Hugo' and I'm going to be honest, we were a bit disappointed. Although it was beautiful visually, I felt the story was a little meandering at times and unsure of itself. Rx
