A New Way to Watch a Movie

IMG_8824Walking into the lobby of the new iPic Theaters in Westwood is like walking into a posh hotel lobby. There is a full bar with seating areas to enjoy a martini or glass of wine before seeing a movie. The beautiful branch ceiling with lights is eye-catching.

Sitting in one of the large, plush burnt orange-colored leather seats, I arranged my pillow to my comfort level and pulled up a soft and cozy blanket to snuggle in and watch The Amazing Spider-Man 2 at the new iPic Theaters in Westwood. This is the ninth theater to join the iPic Theater Group across the nation. It’s the second location in Southern California, with the first being the successful iPic Theater in Pasadena.

Located in the former AVCO Center Theaters on Wilshire, iPic Westwood has six-auditoriums, and 424-seats. The stylish design, creative cocktails and innovative cuisine create this entertainment experience to be different than other movies theaters.

Guests have a choice of either Premium or Premium Plus seating. The Premium are the first three rows and don’t offer the reclining oversized chairs as in Premium Plus.

Guests may carry their food and libations into the theater.

Premium Plus seating features reclining, oversized leather chairs, complimentary popcorn, pillows and blankets, as well as individual service-call buttons that summon servers to deliver signature dishes and hand-crafted cocktails from a gourmet menu designed by the renowned chef Sherry Yard. She serves as Corporate Vice President of Culinary Direction. The full-service bar offers an exclusive selection of hand-crafted cocktails presented by award-winning mixologist and master sommelier Adam Seger.
