The old days of buying a bag of popcorn and a soda yourself at the movies will soon be gone. National Amusements, which runs Showcase Cinemas, has come up with an array of ideas to improve your average movie going experience. They offer special programs designed for families with kids of all ages. Some of them are being tested now in select theatres.
Pick your own seats at the time of the purchase. Enjoy concession items delivered by assigned servers to your premium comfy seat. Menus are provided when you pick up your tickets at the box office and all food is delivered before the movie begins. Menu items range from traditional pop corn and nachos to burgers, pizza, and more. Simply go directly to your seat where a server will take your order. Orders will be received right up until the start of coming attractions and all food will be delivered prior to the start of the film.
Parents and babies can enjoy the latest movies in a baby-friendly setting.
