We saw several movies here during our recent timeshare stay in Newport Beach. Fabulous personalized service, choice of reserved seats, food And beverage delivery to your seat during the movie, WE ARE SPOILED NOW...most comfortable leather recliners. And there's a cute French bistro just downstairs for after the movie.

Most films are limited to only movie goers over 21. Huge seats, so comfortable. The best part is reserve your seats online beforehand, then when you get there go and order a wine or champagne and have them deliver it to your seat during the film ( you tell them what time to deliver it). Then also order a panini or bratwurst for mid- movie delivery. Go ahead, order desert for the last 30 minutes, of course delivered to your seat. Decent sized portions. Very comfortable seats.

Food, wine, beer all priced like L.A. restaurants. Overall a night out here for two couples is about the same price as going to a good restaurant. So, we loved it.

Great night out.

Got to watch the "Hunger Games" here with my nephew. The seating is excellent with lots of legroom and nobody's head in front of you. The seats are soft and comnfortable just like a "lazy boy recliner.

This place is great - first class movie going experience all the way! When you arrive, you pick or 'reserve' your seat (you can do this on Fandango as well) so no having to scramble trying to find a seat. The seats are of the large leather recliner type, stadium seating and spaced nicely. The concessions include the regular movie theater staples and a good variety of other things such as pizza, mac-n-cheese, soups and sandwiches - also a desert bar. But more importantly they serve beer and wine - and they bring everything you order to you at your seat. You can place an advance order for a round of drinks to be brought to you at a set time into the movie. Love it. You could not ask for anything more from a movie theater!

A typical date night for my wife and I at this theater looks like this: 2 tickets, 1 popcorn, 1 candy item, 2 pizzas/or like item, 4 beers, total about $80 bucks. Definitely worth it, can't see myself ever wanting to go to a regular theater again...
