plush movie experience  
Last night, my assistant and I took our Austin team to a movie at a super cush movie theater near our office down here. It has a full bar and kitchen, and the bar has incredibly plush, comfy seating, and there's a great lounge where you can drink and eat while waiting for your movie theater to open. In the theater, there are amazing comfy seats, which you select when you buy the tickets, and if you go for the premium experience, you get to sit in huge, velvety recliners that glide you back into a reclining position, and there a fuzzy blankets at every chair, and full service from waitstaff who will bring your food and drinks as you order them throughout the movie. And there's free popcorn. And a puppy!

Okay, no puppy. But seriously, it was mind-boggling how cushy this experience was. I threatened to move our office there, and, surprisingly, didn't hear any protests ...

Why don't we have one of these in the Boston area??
I'm feeling: luxurious

There's a "Luxe" theater in Dedham, and they're building one in Assembly Square AS WE SPEAK.

(Alas, they do not provide fuzzy blankets or puppies.)

Also, there's one at Chestnut Hill and Framingham.

Yeah...super plush

Yup. Saw Pacific Rim at the SuperLuxe in Chestnut Hill. Very, very plush. No fuzzy blankets, but maybe that's because you're likely dressed warmer in MA?

Let me be slightly more useful: Showcase SuperLux, Chestnut Hill. The kitchen & bar in the theater itself are excellent, there's a Davio's in the building with them, and there's Shake Shack (yes, *that* Shake Shack!) right next door.

I was going to mention this one, too.

AMC at Fenway has been experimenting (or were) with some, but not all, of these features.

There was at least one like this in DC in the 1990s, and I totally thought it was the vanguard of a coming age of AWESOME, but ever since I left DC I have lived in at least three large-enough cities, none of which has had anything remotely like this.

I worried that the movement would distract me until I was absorbed in the movie, looked down, and was surprised to see the food and beer that I ordered which had appeared there automagically. NINJA WAITSTAFF.

I am so in love with the Cinema De Lux near my house! I highly recommend it, especially if there's going to be one near you soon too!

An Alamo Drafthouse?

The best thing about them vs. all the "Luxe" theaters around here is that their tickets are just $10 still.

All the AMC deluxe start at $20 (even higher at the Superluxe in Chestnut Hill)

Having read the comments...
My guess that it was blue laws turns out to be provably false. Can we shut down the government anyway?
