This interesting movie theater-restaurant hybrid recently opened close to us, and we decided to check it out. With a 2.5-year-old and 5-year-old, going out to the movies could range between tolerable and absurd. But this was a great experience! We reserved seats to make sure we were on the aisle (in case our toddler had a break-down), so when we got there we just printed out tickets at a kiosk, walked right in & sat down. Our seats had ‘Reserved’ signs on them, and all the seats had buttons to press for service (order food, refills, etc.). Food was priced like a mid-range restaurant: $6 for kids’ meals and about $9-12 for adult meals. They had an extensive drink menu, plus popcorn & candy on the menu as well. The total bill for our lunch (including popcorn, taxes & tip) was under $40, and the movie tickets were $7 each for a matinee show. Forty-five minutes before the show ended, we were brought the check. This is a great place for both family outings and for a date night (they have an extensive drink menu)! Pros: comfy leather seats/couches, reserve-able seats with advance purchase, individual tables, food is really tasty. Cons: wait staff going back & forth a lot (though they do duck down!), no light for the reserve-able seats ("What did I just dip my French fry in?"), and the non-reserve-able seats had a little ledge you had to look over (may have been harder for kids to see the movie?). Another tip: they show kids’ cartoons every weekend at 11:00 for $2/ticket! Overall a great experience- we’ve been back a few times since our first outing, and have enjoyed it every time!
**Also: kids' movies are shown during the summer for just $1/kids and $2/adults, at 11am, Mon-Fri. Cheap, air-conditioned entertainment!
