I don't live in the San Diego area, so it was my first visit to a ultra-luxurious movie theater. Wow! this was on a whole other level than theaters that call themselves luxury--waiters drinks and appetizers--and not your normal mover theater menu--good wine list and serious appetizers. The lounge chairs are comfy and there is just a lot more room... More

Went to see Star Wars Rogue One...the eve showing was great in English....theatre was cleaned just before we went in but smelled like body odor and faintly of urine. Great comfy seats, sound far tooooo loud. It that's to be expected I guess with Star Wars. The men's bathroom was totally shut down, my hubby had to go in the... More

The leather recliners are very comfortable. When you first sit down your server comes over to take your order. The food is delivered right to your seat. You can eat and enjoy the ,live at the same time. Even the grandkids loved it.

I can't get over the price; it could be that I may be the wrong demographic. I like luxury, but it better be worth the price demographic. One pays $22+ for a ticket. Yes, you get reserved seats that recline. Yes, you get waiters. Yes, you can order overpriced food. I can go to Arclight 10 min away and have... More

I have to say I was pretty shocked to see how much we spent on a movie for 2 adults and a child ($64!)...and that was before any food or drink. Just because you call a ticket booth the "concierge" does not change the fact that it's a ticket booth! The glass of wine I had was fine but sure... More

First, there is one thing wrong with this form of watching a movie. You'll never want to go see a movie in a normal theater! Reclining leather seats, lots of room, great service and watching a movie in such a comfortable way. It is expensive, a little too much, but a great date night. The wine is expensive considering it's... More

This was an awesome way to watch Infiltrator. The only thing I did not like was they had 21 and only theaters. I was not able to get my first choice because I was not 21. I wish they looked at ID's or had 21+ wristbands or something. I thought it was stupid that minors could not watch pg-13 movies... More

This was the first time we had been to a movie theatre like this. We loved everything about it! The comfy cushy seating, the great cocktail menu, the large food menu, and the service to your seat were all fantastic. Every movie theatre should have service like this!

First impression upon entering the lobby was that it looked pretty upscale. There was a bar with cocktail tables on one side and a lounge area with a big screen TV on the other side. Noticed an upstairs lobby area as well. Although I noticed one employee who wasn't wearing black, all other staffers wore black pants and shirts, but... More

Having been to similar style theaters before, i was curious to see what CIneopolis did to distinguish itself. In this case, the Del Mar location is nestled in an outdoor shopping area, so there are lots of other places around it, if you're looking to kill time/get a snack beforehand. Inside, it's definitely well maintained, and the order process was... More
