T he regular movie experience has been ruined for me forever.

How could waiting in long lines to buy or pick up our tickets, waiting in another line to get popcorn and drinks in paper cups, sitting in normal, somewhat uncomfortable seats, and have people moving and talking all around us ever hold a candle to this?……..

My own comfy recliner with a big soft blanket to curl up in right next to Neil’s recliner with a small table in the middle to hold our martini glass filled with peanut M&Ms and our glasses of Coke Light. Not to mention the call button that will bring a waiter right to our seats recliners in case we decide we’d like a glass of wine, coffee, dessert, hors d’oeuvres or some other offering off the day’s menu.

And before you jump to the conclusion that I’ve bribed my boys to act as waiters as I lounge at home watching a movie off of Apple TV, while not a bad idea, you have to see the Golden Village Theaters Gold Class.

It was phenomenal! I put my recliner foot rest up and wrapped up in the blanket (the theater was air conditioned just enough to be cool but not cold) sipped my soft drink and snacked on M&Ms as I watched a good movie. We saw This Means War and it was funny! It’s not going to win awards for film making but a great date movie.

That’s the way all movie experiences should be.

Our only problem…now we’re spoiled. Who wants to go back to a normal theater after that????

I sure don’t and neither does Neil.

However, for the sake of keeping my boys level headed and down to earth (Yes, I’m aware that it is a near impossible feat) I will continue to take them to the normal theater down the street when we want to see something as a family.

Oh, the things I will do for the benefit of my children….my love for them knows no bounds. :D

From now on, though, date movies will be strictly Gold Class.

Oh yeah!

    The Sundance theater here in Madison has a similar kind of experience, though not quite to that level (no blanket, no waiter, but it does have BIG COMPHY seats taht you can reserve in advance, a REAL menu including sandwiches, desserts and cocktails and a personal table tray to put them on. Heaven. Can’t wait to “go gold” with you!!

      Tig, if there is anything good playing while you’re here, we’ll go so you can check it out!

    Wow! I would love to have something like this in Montreal. I’m just happy when I can leave the theatre and there is no gum stuck to the bottom of my shoes.

      I know exactly what you mean! Gum is never an issue in Singapore but there are other annoyances, as with just about any theater. The last movie we saw as a family, there was a young boy sitting next to Neil and he didn’t stop bouncing around in his seat and “accidentally” poking him with his toy the entire movie. Non of us were pleased with the disruption. The boy’s mother just sat there and ignored him. ARG!!!! I’d much rather pay more and enjoy the whole experience. I’m losing my patience as I get older.

    My daughter and our exchange student went to see The Hunger Games in Gold Class as a last treat before the exchangee returned to England. She loved it!! I couldn’t believe that such places don’t seem to exist in the UK.

    You’re right though…once you’ve been, you’re totally spoiled for ever returning to a regular cinema!

      I’m embarrassed to admit, we’ve been back already! We went to see the Hunger Games as well and I enjoyed the theater just as much as the first time we went! LOL!
