Gold Class Cinemas

I got an invitation to go to the soft open for the new Gold Class Cinema in Austin, TX at The Domain.  I must say that I was impressed.  If you’ve never heard of it, I suggest you check out their website.  They say “Gold Class Cinemas in equivalent to flying first class, and actually, customers say it is better,” to describe themselves on their website.  I was able to choose my seat on the phone when reserving my ticket, and when I arrived all I had to do was tell them my name and my ticket was handed to me.  So no matter if you’re there 30 minutes before your showtime or only 5, you know exactly where you’re going to be sitting.  If you do arrive early, they have a bar and lounge area where you can relax and chat with your friends.  The seats in the lounge are ultra-plush and there are areas that are made intimate with candle light.  A waiter will take care of you the minute you enter the door.  Ah, I should mention that the door is a sliding automatic door.  When you’re ready to sit in your theater, a waiter who is assigned to you will escort you directly to your seat and make sure you find everything to your liking.  If you’d like a pillow and a blanket they will bring you one.  The minute I sat in my reclining plush chair I knew I wouldn’t want to leave.  It was so comfortable!  There are buttons on the inside of the chair that controls the reclining feature and it doesn’t make any noise.  After looking over the menu, my friends and I were ready to order so all we had to do was press the little button on our table to order.  Within a minute our waiter arrived to take our order.  The food was absolutely delicious.  The menu is regional so it depends on what location you are at, but I ordered the grilled pressed Cuban sandwich.  It was so mouth-watering and was easy to handle so I didn’t make a mess on myself.  The little table between the seats is dimly lit so it doesn’t distract from the feature.  Oh ladies, if you’re wondering where you’re going to put your purse, the armrest lifts up and there’s a little storage space there (very convenient!).  The auditoriums are small, seating only 40 or so, and are gold class all the way.  I felt like I was at a private screening even though the show was sold-out.  Tickets are a little pricey but if you check out the website you’ll see that there are specials and discounts if you are a Gold Class member, which I am now.  Here’s a picture of my card:

I highly suggest joining the club if you plan on attending.  All in all, I would definitely recommend this theatre!
