You have to make advance reservations on line for an assigned seat. The movie selection is also a little limited just because they only have 8 theater's. When you walk in it looks more like a trendy restaurant than a movie theater. There is a bar on the left and a room full of tables so you can enjoy a drink or snack before your movie. We met a couple there for a quick drink before ours. Instead of your average movie seat you get a giant leather recliner and they are set up in pairs. There are about 7 pairs per row. We walked to our seat, kicked off our shoes and pushed the button that reclines our seat. Then the waiter came around and took our order. Most of the food is fairly low maintenance which makes sense because you are essentially eating in the dark. They have things like wraps, onion rings, paninis and Sushi. There was Chocolate Molten Lava cake for dessert among other things. They also have gourmet popcorn and typical movie candy. The food prices were surprisingly reasonable. We ordered mini corn dogs as an appetizer. I splurged and got the Caesar salad. Yes, this is a splurge because I normally won't touch full fat dressing. Mj got the Burger and fries. There is a little table that slides over for you to eat your food. We saw Django and it was really good. Classic Quentin Tarantino touches but in a totally different setting then you would ever expect. We both really liked it.
So was it worth $19.50? Call me crazy and I know it's totally excessive but I actually say yes. It's a novelty and you're paying for that along with the extra amenities. The price is steep but it was absolutely the best movie watching experience ever! Django is a long movie and my butt never got tired once. It was so cozy being able to cuddle up comfortably with Mj. You feel like you're at home but you're not. Why not stay home then for free right? Well, it was a fun and different date night for us to go out and do together. It's not something we'll do every time or even every other time we go to the movies. That would be ridiculous. We're not rich. It would just be an every so often kind of thing but we definitely plan on going back.
