Luxe Movie Theaters

I love going to the movies, which isn’t much of a surprise if you know me or read my About Holly section. I will even go to the movies while traveling sometimes. Usually it is when I am staying with friends and family. I have been to a lot of different theaters in different states, but one small chain has stuck out to me, iPic Theaters.

There are many movie theaters popping up with comfortable lazy boy seats and full menu meals, but iPic Theaters does this extremely well! It is a small chain that is growing across the United States. They can be found in Scottsdale, AZ, Pasadena, CA, Bethesda, MD, Austin and Houston, TX and more. Imagine having this kind of experience in your own home, through somewhere like this Home Theater Installers in the UK, that would be amazing, wouldn’t it?

iPic is a very luxe theater and the prices range from locations, times, and if you are a member or non-member. The last time I went I paid $28 at the Pasadena location. I know your jaw dropped, yes I spent that much on a movie ticket. My ticket allowed me to sit in a very comfortable lazy boy. It came with a blanket and a pillow so I could feel right at home. I was also given unlimited popcorn. Every time I wanted more popcorn I would press a button for someone to bring me more. No getting up!
There is a table in the middle between you and another person at this location where you can order food or a drink as well. Although they are setting up every theater different, the one in Pasadena had limited seating to allow for space. It really felt like I was at home relaxing, but with the beauty of a huge screen and amazing sound. This got me thinking that I needed to upgrade some of our cinema system at home. As soon as I got home, I got online at RM Projectors.com and started shopping!

iPic Theaters also has the Salt Lounge where you can relax, have a drink, and talk with your friends. There is also Tanzy Express where you can buy chef prepared food, beer, martinis, wine, and more. Best part is you can take it all into the theater with you! Some locations also have Tanzy Restaurant, which also includes a full service bar. They have made an entire experience out of going to see a movie. They have thought of ways to please their customers before, during, and after the movie.
