“Upscale Movie Experience!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Wow, what a concept! It's expensive and you need to arrive super early to get your seats! We ended up on the very front row with our eyes and neck hurting after the movie, that hurt! The food is served and is really gourmet! Good stuff! Good Wine! Server takes his gratuity automatically so be prepared. Our Movie was worth going for the visit. We would def visit again if we have extra money to spend!

“Best way to see a movie”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Our favorite way to view movies! Order your dinner, bottle of wine, sit back and relax. They do not serve once the movie starts so there are no interruptions. Seating is very comfortable.

“Very nice way to watch a movie, but it will cost you plenty!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

We had free tickets to get in but I think the admission is about $15. Huge leather seats but honestly, not comfortable. Foot rest would have helped, we were both uncomfortable half way through the movie. They looked better than they were. Food was overpriced and not great...just OK. I had the burger, it was good, but greasy. My wife had the chicken BLT, the chicken was tough as nails, impossible to cut through, let alone chew. It was work eating her meal. Prices were high. She had a Blue Moon ($5.75) and I had a Martini ($11). Overall, nice date night but considering the movie was free for us we still spent nearly $60. I think the gratuity, automatically added was 27%, pretty steep considering the minimal service and sub-par food.

“A bit pricey for what you get”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

A very novel idea - fun for a splurge, but we definitely wouldn't make a habit out of it. The large seats were a bit too big for me so I wasn't really comfortable the entire time. The food was very good, but pricey for the choices and portions. The food service was fast and the servers were friendly. Overall a nice way to watch a movie - we all had a good time.

“Not worth the money”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

We thought we would try something new. My first problem is handicap parking is so far away (across the street in the parking garage...w/parking spots furthest from the theater). Then we didn't think we needed to make the reservations early so we got the crappy front row seats. The waiter was really good & explained everything really good. Food was really good. A couple came in late (disturbing the movie) & then they were super loud thru out the movie too (worse than being in a regular theater b/c of the size). Safe your money, go out to dinner then go see a movie.
