I'm spoiled by Cinepolis, and rarely go anywhere else to see a movie. Yes, it's a little expensive - $15.50 to $17.50 for a matinee - but every seat is a good seat. Seats are... read more

Cinepolis is expensive. That should always be everyone's first thought. If you're okay with that, let me describe this awesome movie experience. My wife and I arrived VERY early, so we could take advantage of the small cafe/bar inside the theater. Movie-themed cocktails, beer, and wine were all available. The cocktails were especially delicious, but the themed versions cost twice... More

I'm spoiled by Cinepolis, and rarely go anywhere else to see a movie. Yes, it's a little expensive - $15.50 to $17.50 for a matinee - but every seat is a good seat. Seats are leather recliners with great sight lines, and you have the option of ordering snacks to be delivered to your seat.

Clean, a little expensive but expected at a luxury theater. My only gripe about this is seeing waiters come in during movie and having 1 of the guys shine a light in my face and the lady sitting next to me. Not sure what it was all about as he didnt say anything to us. The reclining seats were comfortable.

After going to iPic in Scottsdale we haven't been able to get ourselves to watch a movie without that kind of luxuries. We were so happy to have found Cinepolis which was described as a similar experience. The staff isn't very friendly and they were having trouble with the movie loading we stayed sitting there for over 40 minutes. The... More

The comfy seats and having your meal delivered to your seat are very nice. Unfortunately, there are a few cons which make this an experience that is only worth it occasionally. Pros - relaxing - great for date night - large parking lot Cons - prices are very high - alcohol is only served for select movies (due to the... More

Expensive but what the heck; laying back in those easy chairs chomping on very good food, sipping pretty good wine and watching the latest and greatest movies !!! Can't get much better than that !!

We had heard great things about Cinepolis before we went, and we couldn't have been more disappointed. It took awhile for our server, Kyle, to take our orders. This was 30 minutes prior to the start of the film. Forty five minutes into the film we had received nothing but our soft drinks. We had to leave the movie in... More

My husband and I had a date night in this theatre. We love the luxury experience but the food not much. I wish they have a healthy choice other than a special huge popcorn.

We like the theaters with lounge seats but usually find them in our area with drinks available. We were disappointed that we couldn't get a beer with our movie unless you were in theater one or two. Would have been nice to see that before we booked seats.

They have updated this theater to a new luxury theater. Personally, I love seeing movies this way. Some people don't like the price, however, I do. I would recommend if you are not on a budget.
