It doesnt get better: 1. Great bar in the lobby 2. Pre-assigned seats 3. Big comfy reclining couch seats 4. Great food delivered straight to your seat Protip: If your looking to order booze at your seat make sure your show is a 21+ showing! (Cinema 1 & 2 only I believe)

Once you've had the Cinepolis experience, you may never go to a normal theater again. Yes, it's more expensive, but the experience of a super comfortable leather chair/recliner, personal service, food and alcohol, sets the bar for a great movie experience. I'm now more selective in what I see in the theater, which balances out on my pocketbook.

This is a luxury to us but so worth the money! It's a great place to see a movie in a luxury cinema. The food and drinks are great as well!

My husband and I have only been to regular theaters and the Gold Theatre in Pasadena. That theatre has ambiance and gourmet food (basic food but amazing flavors!!). We were expecting to find a similar experience at Cinepolis but were incredibly disappointed. The lobby has a sports bar atmosphere complete with big screen TV, the food was on par with... More

The Cinepolis has wonderfully comfortable recliner chairs that are the absolute best for kicking back and watching a good movie. You can push a button and have waiters come to you and take your order for all kinds of foods on the menu. This goes waaaay beyond popcorn, candy and sodas. It's almost like sitting in my own favorite rocker/recliner... More

This was great. You are not rushing to park because you need to purchase your ticket and find the perfect seat. Cinepolis lets you purchase your tickets online and your seat is waiting for you (reserved). You can go early and have an alcohol beverage at the bar with food or wait until your in your reclining big A** seat... More

This is a must if you want to see a movie. The seats are leather recliners and very comfortable. In the 21+ theaters there is drink service and mixed drinks, beer and wine can be ordered. All of the theaters offer food and drink service to your seat. Food includes popcorn, candy, burgers, salads, fries and there is a lot... More

This is the way to watch a movie. Reclining seats are like luxurious airline First Class seats. Add to that food and adult beverage service at your seat, before and during the movie. Once you experience movie watching this style, you'll not want to go to a traditional movie theater.

Chairs/recliners are comfortable and the sound system as well as visuals were great. Great place for date night or to grab a drink with friends before the movie.

We don't have these theaters in our home state so this was our first visit to a Cinepolis. We LOVED it! I don't think the tickets were that expensive ($13.50 for a senior matinee ticket); we pay $12 at home for much less comfortable seating. The seats were so comfortable it was almost hard not to fall asleep! I must... More
