Last night Carlos and I got to check out the brand new VIP Cineplex Cinemas on Fairway Road in Kitchener!
I’ll be honest with you- I was curious how I would like the whole experience mainly because I’m the type of person who can’t sit for a long time, let alone sit in a chair for a long time with no room to get up or stretch or walk around for a bit.
But I’ll be honest with you- it was the complete opposite of what I thought it would be!
The lobby, being new and beautiful… is, well, it’s new and beautiful. You have a main lobby for people who want to see a flick in a regular movie theater setting (but keep in mind the ‘regular’ side still has very comfortable seats that recline and have a movable armrest so you can *cuddle*! ), you have the AVX theaters if THAT’s what you’re into.. But I’m going to be a little biased here, the VIP area is where it’s at.
There’s a licensed lounge just outside the theater that will make sure you don’t regret dressing up to go to a movie… You know.. you wear your best booty jeans, some heels, and a nice shirt and then you walk into a theater and think “Crap… half the people here are wearing track pants anyway and I’m pretty sure there’s something sticky on my chair ruining my shirt” That’s not going to happen here.
One of my favourite parts about the VIP experience is that you CAN sit in the lounge beforehand… BUT, inside the actual theater there are menus at every seat so you can order some food and drink RIGHT FROM YOUR CHAIR! Your big, power reclining, armrest removable chair. It’s pure bliss.
You’ve made me a moviegoer again, Cineplex! For that, I thank you!
PS- Congratulations to Chuck Cameron, who is the General Manager of this new VIP Cineplex. He spends his spare time being General Manager to the best D Division (Former consolation Champs, by the way) CARL League Slow Pitch team Waterloo Region has… the Porchcrawlers!
