Regular movie theaters can have crying babies, loud teenagers, uncomfortable seats, and snack bars that charge restaurant prices for 7-11 quality products. iPic eliminates the distractions and replaces them with a comfortable recliner, a pillow and blanket combo, an adjustable table, and a call button that allows you to reach a server at any point during the movie. They take an ordinary movie experience and turn it into something you want to brag to your friends about. The Premium Plus seats also have free unlimited popcorn!
Let me start with the prices (prices stay the same regardless of when you go):
Premium Plus: $28 (reclining seats, food and beverage service, pillow and blanket, and unlimited popcorn)
A few minutes into the movie, a server came around with complimentary popcorn. The servers seem to move around in stealth mode… I didn’t really notice them unless mine came to speak directly to me. About halfway through the movie, we ordered a seasonal dessert that consisted of two chocolate cookies with a peppermint cream filling (think whoopie pie, but much better). A great way to finish things up.
The overall cost of the night for 2 people was just over $100 + tip. Considering we watched a movie while literally being treated like royalty (sure we paid for it, but still 😊) and had dinner during the movie, it’s a small price to pay for a great experience.
As you can see in the picture below, I was ready to call it a night.
