“Blown Speakers”
Reviewed 18 February 2014

This was a tough one for me. I was treated by my Aunt who was so excited to share this experience with me. She's a huge fan of this place, and I had never been.

I had 2 problems with the experience today:

1. There was a speaker blown in our theater. It was very distracting and made the movie difficult to watch. For the price paid I would expect this to NEVER be passed off nonchalantly.

2. My cousin ordered a few things from the menu and some of it was never delivered. After pointing it out, our check was adjusted. That's great, but part of the experience is ordering food and having it delivered during the movie.

Maybe things were just off today, I can see how this would be a fun experience, but My aunt was thoroughly disappointed because she really likes this place.

“Always a Special Treat”
Reviewed 10 February 2014

A stress free, super-fun evening. Movie selections are great, food choices tasty, cocktails unique--all in a comfortable setting with amazing ambiance. My husband and I treat ourselves to this experience as often as we can. We took our teenage granddaughter here when she visited from out of town. Her parents said that that's all she's talked about since. "You can order any kind of candy and they bring it right to your seat!"

“Unique way to watch a movie”
Reviewed 25 January 2014

If you want to spoil yourself, go and watch a movie in a recliner chair with a blanket and free popcorn. Even better, is the ability to order reasonably priced drinks and even food to have while enjoying the show. It's expensive ($30 each plus the food & drink) but what the heck, why not every once and awhile.

“Total Theater Experience”
Reviewed 4 January 2014

This is a unique experience and one that you should try. The atmosphere is a bit out of my taste zone, not one for the bar/70's look, but the fun of going into a private theater with big fluffy chairs and food service right to your seat is really special. The pricing is high but the experience is one you walk out feeling okay with.

“Home Theatre with Big Screen”
Reviewed 12 October 2013

IPIC is a great experience - only 50 seats in a huge theater - each seat reclines like a 1st class airline seat. They supply a blanket and pop corn. The seats are spread apart so no annoying noises. Full dinner is served at your seats and the food is great - sliders, flat breads, fish and chips, popcorn scrimp - anything you want. A bottle of wine or mixed drinks make it a great date night and service is perfect - TIP 20% as the server has only a few customers.
Yes, it is expensive - $25 per ticket and appetizers with drink can run $50. Full dinner and drinks is $100 with tip. BUT if went out after a movie for dinner, it would be about the same. Great ice cream gelato store next store for after. The Salt Bar in the lobby has TV's and belly bars and lounge chairs - deluxe experience. So go and enjoy and realize you are paying for privacy. Only negative is tickets can purchased on line and the Friday/Saturday movies sell out early so commit early. First run and big hits sell out fast also.
