On Friday 9/20/2019 we went to see Ad Astra⭐️ at the Cinnebar Palace Station. The movie was bad, the service and food was not.
This was our first trip to a Regal Cinnebar theater. The concept is cool, you go to the movies and have dinner and a show. The location of the Cinnebar is upstairs above the newly remodeled Palace Station Casino a few miles from the strip in Las Vegas.
Once you buy tickets, you enter the theater just like any other Regal Cinema. The difference is that outside the theater you’ll see pool tables, a full bar and the ability to eat dinner and tables without ever seeing a movie. So, they are selling either the dinner or the show or both. We were there for both, so we entered the theater.
Under the table is a menu with a variety of food and drinks. A Regal waiter/waitress will appear to take your order shortly after you enter the theater. He has a credit card scanner and printer attached to him and will take payment when you order.
An added creative twist are menu items being a variation on a movie title. EXAMPLE. it’s not just popcorn, it’s “Children of the Popcorn” Check out the IT-themed drink options:
We were surprised how fast the order came. Sure, it was just ice cream and nachos, but the order literally came to us hot and ready within five minutes. We also had our water glasses refilled before the movie started.
Will we visit another Cinnebar? Absolutely. It was a great experience. That makes two firsts for us while we were in Las Vegas celebrating our 30 year anniversary. We also watched our very first HDX movie.
