From the lounge, to the wait staff, huge comfy recliner, gourmet eats, and great theater sound the Gold Class is the best theater I've ever attended bar none!

The space and the staff create a new experience. The decor is state of the art. Everyone is dressed in black. Most are young, look very cosmopolitan and are very friendly and helpful without being pushy or annoying. They know how to maintain the exact distance that makes you comfortable. They will attend to whatever you need and are the best part of the experience.
The movie watching arrangements are extremely comfortable. You sit in a lounge chair with a small table for food, etc. There's a call button if you want anything. The movies are like any other theater, but the sound system is good and you don't feel as if anyone is breathing down your back. There really aren't any bad seats.
The menu is excellent. The choices look enticing. The prices even seemed reasonable. But the food itself simply did not come up to the standards of everything else. The filet mignon sliders were full of gristle. The chicken satay tasted boiled, with a sauce from a bottle. (I can't verify that, but that's what it tasted like.) The truffle fries were by far the best part of the meal. Maybe it varies, but after all of the other qualities, it was very disappointing.
Enjoy the ambience and the movie and the drinks.

Having the experience of a movie in style and first class you must check out this movie theater. Everything was great and pure class from the time you walk in til the time you leave. I really impressed my fiance this time. She had a great time for her birthday.

Gold Class cinemas is the best theater I have ever been to by far. The seats are luxurious recliners and there are servers to bring you anything from a soda to a beer or martini, or gourmet popcorn to a hand-made pizza. The tickets are pricey ($22) but you get to enjoy a movie without the usual annoyances from a crowded theater. You can also book your tickets online and that includes choosing your seats. The theaters have only 24 to 44 seats, so they do often sell out.

The only negative is that if you start a tab (which they strongly encourage when you are picking up your ticked), based on my experience and the experiences of others, it is clear the theater is not likely to fix any mistakes. I ordered a popcorn during the movie, which never arrived. However at the end of the movie I was presented with the bill. I informed the server we never received the snack and she said she would remove the charge. They put a hold on the charge but two days later, lifted the hold and took the money. Calls and e-mail to the theater have been ignored. Now I have to hassle with fighting a $7 charge. Had I just waited to give them my credit card at the end, I could have avoided the problem.

This is not your average movie theater! It is an unique hybrid between a night club, restaurant and ...yes, movie theater. The food was awesome. You must try the chicken wraps and the bluecheese covered patato chips. Yum!!! After or during dinner you can order from a wide variety of cocktails. And cognac...yes, they have that too. Then the theater. Large reclining chairs with compartment for your personal belongings. Pillows and blankets...yes, you can have that too. We ordered deserts with capuccino during the movie, which was to die for. Even the soap and the lotion in the bathrooms were a topic of conversation. The girls were going Ga-Ga over it. Can't wait to go there again. Oh, and BTW, for all the single guys...check out the hostesses. A lot of eye candy. Hope this review helps.‎
