I was chatting with my car-pooling partner in crime, Sue, and she was telling me about a new VIP movie experience at Cineplex. You may be thinking, “what does this have to do with boating?” Well, Cineplex has starting serving wine and cocktails in select theatres! Last night we went to the brand new Marine Gateway Cineplex VIP theatre at Marine and Cambie in Vancouver. The other two locations are in Abbotsford and Coquitlam.
The first great thing about this new service is that you can order your tickets on-line and choose your seats! Brilliant. We went a little early to check out the full-service lounge that is part of the experience. We ordered a bottle of wine and some appetizers which you are more than welcome to take to your seats. The in-seat service starts 30 minutes before the show.
The seats are luxurious, high-back leather loungers and super comfy. They each come with a slide out table and you can remove the middle arm rest for more of a “couch” feel. The cost is $25 per person, which is a bit steep for a movie, but it is totally worth it! If you are looking for a great “date night” idea, this is it.
We watched Melissa McCarthy (love her) in “The Boss” but it was disappointing. However, that didn’t put a damper on a great night.
