Gold Class

An ol buddy Paul who’s one of the managers to help open Gold Class Cinemas in LA invited me to check out their spot in old town Pasadena.

I sometimes bashfully but most of the times I bold-fully consider myself a movie buff/movie critic. I grew up watching/experiencing movies at places like the Mann Chinese, Mann’s Westwood, Cinerama Dome, Laemmles and (in more in recent years)these Megaplex movie theaters that are conveniently everywhere.

Gold Class Cinemas is trying to make the movie experience special again. Each theater room has 40 (HUGE) automatic reclining seats. If you happen to arrive early you can order a drink from the bar or the lounge.  Once seated in the theater with a push of a button you can order food from a menu. The menu offers a verity of fine wine, and gourmet movie food.

They also have a pretty good selection of beer that’s not of the menu.. The decor feels more like boutique hotel more than it does a movie theater.  The over all experience is sure to win most people over.. I would say the Gold Class might be a little over kill for a once a week movie goer, but with only 40 seats per theater I’m guessing it’s not meant to be for everybody..

It’s a great place for a movie date. Get there early and book tickets in advance..
