[Not Your Mama's] Movie Night

Go off script and host your next movie night in one of these unique venues.

1. Historical Theaters

Theaters are bastions of cultural activity, and The Tampa Theater has been holding its torch high since 1926. Step back in time in this "grand movie palace" for a night out that's as regal as Old Hollywood. You'll even be treated to an organ performance on the Mighty Wurlitzer before your show begins. Or if you're in LA, check out New Beverly Cinema, aka Quentin Tarantino's movie theater. The line up usually includes cult classics and as double features of his own movies.

2. Drive In Theaters

There's nothing wrong with a little nostalgia when it comes to Friday night, and the Ford Drive In in Michigan,  Electric Dusk in LA, and Smith's Ranch in Twenty-nine Palms are perfect spots to park. Whether you're holding hands to the robot explosions of a summer blockbuster or sneaking kisses during the latest JLo rom-com, what happens in the front seat stays in the front seat.

3. Cinema Clubs

Look, your living room works just fine for getting the neighborhood crew together, but there are times when its necessary to take things up a notch. Hot Tub Cinema and Pillow Cinema throws first-rate, themed movie parties in London, NYC, and Ibiza, so grab tickets for their next event if you need to shake movie night up a bit.

4. Restaurant Theaters

Make reservations at Foreign Cinema in San Fran for a remarkably charming evening of dining and dreaming. What girl doesn't want her cheesecake with a side of John Cusack?

5. Hotels & Resorts

Vacation isn't complete without a few things - a white fluffy robe, room service, and a swim in the hotel pool. Why not add movie night to the list? As you can see, The Pearl Hotel (San Diego, CA), Soneva Kiri (Thailand), and Shooting Star RV Resort (Escalante, UT) all get it right.


Or... upgrade your beverage to a CALIWATER on your next #NeflixAndChill night! You wont regret it.
