iPic Theaters

Posted: Updated:

Dinner and a movie; it's the mainstay of dating life. We're checking out a theater that promises a luxury cinematic experience. From the seats to the food to the service, iPic Theaters will make you feel like the star of the show. Deco's resident movie critic and professional popcorn eater, Shireen Sandoval, has the ticket.

"Gravity," starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney, had some amazing special effects, but the folks behind iPic Theaters in Boca Raton are making their own movie magic.

Alex Reid: "We've designed the theater so every seat is the best seat in the house. There's no sort of vantage point."

The local multiplex? That's like riding in coach. Every seat here is first class.

Alex Reid: "You can't buy these in a store; we actually made these for our consumer. They fully recline. They're leather. They're very comfortable."

Don't worry. Once you get comfortable, you don't have to get up.

Alex Reid: "They come with a table, so you can eat while you watch, and a call button so if you want service, much like an airline, you press the button and our, we call them "ninja servers," come to you in the dark and ask you what you want."

Nosh on steak sliders and romaine spears, or just kick back with a cocktail and unlimited popcorn.

Alex Reid: "We've designed the menu so you can eat it in the dark, don't need cutlery, not many sauces so you don't drip, easy to eat with your fingers."

If stuffing your face through "American Hustle" isn't your thing, iPic has a restaurant right in the lobby. After dinner, head upstairs and enjoy the show.

Alex Reid: "iPic is a movie theater all about choices. We like to say you can have as little or as much service as you want when you come to iPic Theaters.

Other perks include reserved seating, a ladies' room to die for, and best of all, room to relax.

Alex Reid: "One of the reason peeps choose us over multiplex, because it's a far more intimate setting to watch a film. It's quieter, there's less people in here."

    The last time I had on a pair of overalls, I was miles from civilization with a whip in my hand, an hysterical co-worker by my side and five angry cowboys staring me down.

    I don't remember dying, but I did. Twice. It was a chilly Fall morning in October at a dentist's office in Santa Fe. My mom had escorted me to what was supposed to be a regular wisdom teeth extraction appointment.

    I could see the door to the jet bridge closing, despite the fact that I was just a few yards away from it.

    If I Stay is based on a best seller. Chloe Grace Moretz stars as a teen cellist facing tough choices, both here and in the space between life and death. Chloe and her co-star Jamie Blackley are telling Deco: bring some tissues, it's a tear jerker.

    Kindness and charm, unlike the people that live in Sin City, and i'm not talking about Vegas either. Things have changed in the town of Sin as in the motion picture while others have stayed the same. The cast of the movie told Deco what's new in part two.?

    This year's Miami Spice could use a phone book just to list the restaurants taking part, more than a hundred. Which means filling up on three courses for only $39 bucks. And at some places, that means saving a whole lot of money.
