Fancy Theaters

{Breakfast!}
Does your town/city have one? We just opened up a new theater here in Omaha {which is where I saw New Moon, as a matter of fact!} which features cocktails, lunch/dinner options, & wonderful seating.
{Luxurious, 1st-class seating}
We chose to sit in the balcony (no dinner served up there) because we were able to reserve our own seats online. No searching for an empty set of chairs in a dark theater anymore! It was wonderful. That and the cocktails. Did I mention the cocktails?
{Yes, Chuck, that's an ad for 'The Squeakquel' in the background}
You simply press a little red button & voila! A waiter at your service to prepare your drink of choice. I think we managed to get through about 4 bloody marys each in a 2 hour movie. Of course, you can also simply hit up the bar, which happens to be on the way to the restrooms.
{Our bartenders, working hard in Vue, the balcony's bar}
The verdict? I would go again.

Looks so fancy and fun!! Any place with cocktails and feature films is a good place in my book :)

That is awesome! Our theater serves cocktails and light apps such as fruit and cheese or sandwiches along with all the regular movie food, but no reservations or cocktail seating. I wish we had that!

Ooooh fun. I love that you just hit a red button and BAM..happiness! hahaha!

Although eating real food in a theater freaks me out. All those smells mixing together, no thank you. But I'm weird like that.

WHHHAAAAA???!!? And we used to be forced to sneak in our own bags of wine. Why oh why did this open after I moved away?? Maybe I'll fly back for the next Harry POOter and we can legally drink in the theater.

So fun! I used to go once in a while to a great theater like that in Indy. Love it!

This looks fabulous!! I would definitely go to the movies more if we had a nice theatre like this. I hate paying $20 and then having to listen to loud teenagers and sit in seats that were probably featured on one of those dateline specials about hidden bacteria. I thought of you this morning when I saw the wind chill factor for Omaha on the news! Hope you are keeping warm!!

Fancy INDEED! We have a few here in DC that serve beer and cocktails, but they serve them at the concessions stand, not to you in your seat. SCORE! I want to go to there...

A new theater like this just opened in my city a few weeks ago, although I haven't been yet. I think they serve food too. Mmmmm....
