What do you look for in a movie theater?
I'm happy with a clean environment, decent prices, and good snacks.
Last week, my standards were raised !
The Tampa Bay Bloggers were a part of Media Day and headed to St. Petersburg for a look at the Brand new Cobb Luxury 10 Theaters.
Why is this theater "Luxury"?
Let me show you.
As opposed to a 300 seat theater, the Cobb Luxury 10 Theaters range from 80 seats to 179 seats.
This allows for the leather reclining seats, and plenty of aisle space.
These seats were so very comfortable. Nanci from This Crazy Life of Mine said that if she had a blanket and pillow, she could have fallen asleep. These seats are that comfortable. I love the LED seat numbers, so you can always find where you are sitting.
Here's how the Cobb Luxury 10 Theaters works. These very comfortable recliners are available by reservation only !. Yep, you can go online or into the box office and choose your seats. It doesn't matter if you are there an hour ahead of your showtime, or walking in with the previews. The seats you bought are where you are sitting !
We were also told that you could exchange your seat location, at Guest Services, in the event you didn't like your original choice, given there is still open seats available.
You can also hold meetings in any of the theaters. Hook up your laptop and watch your presentation come to life on the big screen! You can have the spotlight (literally) and adjust the lighting from a handy location in the front of the theater.
The Food !
The Cobb Luxury 10 Theaters has a full kitchen where your meal is made from scratch. No pre-frozen chicken nuggets or pizza dough here! The menu is extensive and you can come into the theater, just to eat and visit the bar.
The prices for the food is comparable to any sit down restaurant and the portions are wonderful.
Yes, I did say bar !
There is a full bar with draft, bottle, and even craft beers. They have a great wine selection and the assortment of specialty beverages, named after movie favorites, tests your decision making skills.
What will you have?
What will you have?
If the line at the ticket window is too long, and you didn't have a chance to go online, you can head over to one of the Kiosks to purchase your tickets.
You can see what seats are available, print, and buy your tickets quickly and easily.
I bet you are wondering how much the tickets are going to cost for luxury seating.
Ticket prices are very reasonable and although it has been a while since I have gone to the theater, I'm told that these rates are common for our area.
Adult tickets $11.00, Matinee (4 pm and earlier) and Seniors (60 & older) $8.00, Child (ages 3-12) $7.75, Student/Military (With Valid ID.) $10.00
If you want to see any movie in 3D, just add $3.00 to your ticket price
