Every once in a while I get an invite to something I LOVE SO MUCH – I become a huge fan. This is one of those events. I’m grateful for the opportunity to attend Cineplex VIP – Shops at Don Mills – Launch Party and Screening, I can’t imagine watching a movie in cinema any other way.
Here are some reasons why – VIP cinema amenities:
- 5 VIP Screen(s)
- 3 Real D 3D Screen(s)
- 5 Screen(s)
- Party Rooms
- In-Seat Food and Beverage Service
- Dolby ATMOS Sound Experience
- Valet Parking Available
- Licensed Lounge
Although a limo pick up was offered (mostly for the downtown crowd), Bobby and I opted to just drive as we only live a short distance away. Driving was a great idea especially seeing as VIP Cinema offers valet parking. I love valet parking – a lot. Also, it’s an amazing value at only $4.
Of course there’s a step and repeat at this VIP launch event and we absolutely took advantage of it, we picked our seats and stepped upstairs to the lounge. What a great experience, we (mostly me), tried probably all the the beverages on the menu and so much of the fun food too!
Bobby and I were truly impressed with the menu offerings that Cineplex had put together – including arancini, flat bread bruschetta, shrimp cocktail and the most amazing deep fried cheesecake I’ve ever had. Bobby (the man who never smiles AND hates cheesecake), fell madly in love with the Xango cheesecake we tried – he smiled!
We were seated in cinema 4 – I have to say I was pleased to see that there were’t many seats. It was intimate and the seats were FULL recliners. All the seats are paired off, great for date night AND the center armrest can be moved to allow for cuddle room… HOW AWESOME IS THAT? Well, pretty awesome – Bobby and I aren’t public cuddlers.
The sound system in this cinema was really pleasing. Dolby Atmos, yup… it’s incredible sound. We weren’t able to really tell during our screening of The Trip To Italy but, Bobby and I returned recently to watch Guardians of the Galaxy and we were both quite pleased.
The Trip to Italy. I love films with great dialogue and images of beautiful places in the world. It was so nice to see the amazing places in italy, and even add some travel items to my bucket list but, there was A LOT of dialogue and sometimes BORING dialogue. This was definitely not Bobby’s fave movie. The person sitting on the other side of me fell asleep and may have even been snoring during the film. We’ll just blame it on the really REALLY comfortable recliners.
I love Shops At Don Mills and the addition of the Cineplex VIP cinemas is a nice touch! 19+ having a glass of wine during a girly movie or slurping on a rootbeer float and snacking on deep fried cheese cake during an action adventure flick. This is truly one of my (and Bobby’s) new favourite places to be.
Once again, I’d like to thank Casey Palmer for his amazing images… you know, the ones that put mine to shame – time for a real camera.
