I’m partnering with Marcus Theatres to bring you the best date night at the movies!
Brandon and I have been going on dates to the movies for almost 20 years now. Yikes, we are old! But wow has the movie experience changed over the years. We used to share a tub of popcorn and a big soda. Now luckily for us, with Marcus Theatres, we can enjoy an entire date night with food, drinks, and a movie! Oh yeah, and without the kids!!
Marcus has everything you need for a date night at the movies!
While we are pretty lucky to have a Marcus Theatres *just* down the road from our house, but with over 90 Marcus Theatres locations there is probably one near you too! St. Louis readers, there are NINE locations throughout the greater metro area!! Download their mobile app and you can find the theatre closest to you and order all of your tickets. I love that you can pick the exact seats you will sit in via the app and not have to worry about getting to the theatre extra early to get a good seat. Plus the app stores all my Marcus Magical Movie Rewards points!!
Our theatre, the Marcus O’Fallon Cinema has a Take Five Lounge, which is the perfect place to have a drink and even a meal before seeing a movie! We ordered a few appetizers, a burger, and a couple of drinks before our movie date night a few weeks ago. BTR loved the giant screens playing football in the Lounge while we ate. And the best part, we could take our drinks right into the movie with us! You can also take your food, and some theatres, like the Marcus St. Charles and Des Peres Cinemas locally, even offer in-theatre dining in their Big Screen Bistro auditoriums!
I ordered a blackberry refresher cocktail and it was amazing, BTR loved that they had so many different beers on tap and he had no problem finding something he liked!
Of course, my favorite part of seeing a movie at Marcus Theatres is hands down the DreamLounger seating! They are super big and comfortable and recline at the touch of a button. Bonus, if you’re in a SuperScreen DLX or UltraScreen DLX theatre the seats are even heated! I love how I feel like I’m at home watching a movie, but no fear of flying toys from the #rotzbrothers. ;)
I made BTR sneak out and get some popcorn and another drink on our date night because you can’t see a movie and not eat popcorn, just me?
Seeing a movie at Marcus Theatres is always a date night we look forward to! We love the atmosphere and upscale features. We’ve graduated to catching early shows so we can get home before our bedtime. Of course only if the Grandma already put the boys in bed!
You know I’m a big fan of mobile apps and rewards, and Marcus Theatres has one of the best! In the app, you can find movie times, pick your seats and order tickets in advance. And with the Magical Movie Rewards program, you can earn rewards on everything you purchase. Plus they have really fun specials like on $5 Movie Tuesdays, Rewards Members get a free popcorn!
Now I know movies are the perfect couple only date night, but they can also be a fun family day date as well! Brandon and I love taking the boys to see a movie and watch the wonder and excitement in their eyes when watching the big screen.
Now comes the hard part, what movie should we see next? BTR always wants to see drams and I always want to see the action movies!
Marcus Theatres wants you to have the best date night ever! We’re giving one winner a $50 Marcus Theatres gift card so you can plan your own date night!
