Last week, we were invited to visit the completely remodeled Rave 18 + IMAX at The Promenade in the Howard Hughes Center. This is my first time at this location (wish I lived closer). While the pricing is exactly the same as other theaters, the experience is better.
For starters, the Rave Burger Bar serves tasty food along with drinks (alcohol too). This is a great idea especially with those who have teens. I can picture coming here during summer with the dh and letting the kids see the movie of their choice while we enjoy dinner. Win-win.
Another great addition are the Coca Cola Freestyle machines. Once you purchase your drinks from concessions, the difficult part is figuring out which drink to try first. With over 100 different flavors to choose from, there is something for everyone. Browse the different flavors on the touch screen and make your selection. The Diet Raspberry Coke was light and refreshing.
Beat the heat and catch a flick on Tuesdays for $7, price is good for any 2D movie, any time. Plus, parking can be validated. I can imagine this will be a busy night during summer. I would like to see more theaters offer a bargain night.
We picked a movie to get the 3D IMAX experience. This theater has the ability to take a mediocre movie and make it very entertaining. Plus, plan ahead and reserve seats!
