Caesars Las Vegas offers Twilight Zone by Monster Mini Golf

From the “wish we could have done this while on vacation in Las Vegas” list, comes The Twilight Zone mini golf experience at Caesars.

Looking for an affordable, yet extraordinarily unordinary experience in Vegas? Twilight Zone by Monster Mini Golf is a unique 10,000 square foot themed attraction featuring an extraordinary custom-designed indoor glow-in-the-dark 18-hole miniature golf course entertainment venue.

Twilight Zone by Monster Mini Golf

On May 1 some casinos in Vegas are taking reservations (right now). This is about in line with the 45 days behind China that we are on the pandemic and they are starting to open businesses. We’ll be back in Vegas again, hopefully this summer, so am hoping to catch this cool looking mini golf experience next time.

Flying at 30,000 feet as the sun sets … dreams in the cloud

In the meantime, we’ll just have to dream among the clouds.

Movie Cars at Terrible's Casino Just Outside Las Vegas

The Terrible’s Casino is closed, but when it reopens, those of you who are visiting Las Vegas should check out the movie cars exhibit. It’s small, but cool.

James Bond receives some of the best movie cars.

This is the actual car in the movie with Roger Moore. Oh yeah.

And speaking of cars. A little further away in the small town of Primm, Nevada, you can see the actual Bonney & Clyde death car.

This car was first mentioned here: 13+ Queen and Slim Reviews – Almost No Relation To Bonnie and Clyde and Other Critical Discussion

What would you look like as Clyde Barrow or Bonney Parker?

You can find out at Whiskey Pete’s in Primm, Nevada. About 30 minute drive from Las Vegas. It will open again, and it’s a worthy diversion, fellow movie fans.

Lowest Week 11 Domestic Box Office since 1995

From 2003-2020 domestic box office, courtesy of Box Office Mojo

The last five years week #11 box office sales domestically have exceeded $115 million. This week? $50 million. Last time the sales were like that? 25 years ago in 1995. We have to go back to 1998 to see less releases than the 44 this month.

Onward picks up the top slot, followed by: I Still Believe, Bloodshot, The Invisible Man and then The Hunt rounds out the top five. With no wide releases next week, I’ll be watching the two wide releases we haven’t seen over the next week or two. Trolls World Tour is next, see: Trolls World Tour next wide release a month from now, while My Spy and other films missing wide release opportunity.

I’m heading out on a plane tonight to Las Vegas, where I’ll be renting a car this time around so we can get out and do some sightseeting. Also will be checking out any/all movie and TV slots.

Got to play Mad Max Road: Fury Road at the Las Vegas airport

And then there was American Gods.

Actually won $58 on this one at the airport.

See how many I can find out there and where they’re at. Seems like this scavenger hunt might be fun.

The airline is showing recent movies in theater in-flight. I caught Western Stars on there on the flight home.

Cinnebar Palace Station Las Vegas

“One Flew Over the Cookie’s Nest”, nachos and a shake at Cinnebar Palace Station in Las Vegas

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.

The movie chairs are comfortable and contain a decent sized table to eat dinner while you watch the movie

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:

Who wants to sip on some Pennywise Punch while watching IT: Chapter Two?

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.

Movie-related Things To Do In Las Vegas

Sunny weather for our trip to Las Vegas

We are celebrating our 30th Anniversary in Las Vegas this week, I’m compiling the following movie-related things to do in Las Vegas:

  1. Play at least one spin of every movie-related slot machine type seen.
  2. Visit the Cinnebar Palace Station and try one of their tasty dinner menu items, while watching a movie.
  3. Watch at least one 4DX movie. The Red Rock shows 4DX movies. Maybe Rambo: Last Blood will have a 4DX showing on Thursday? Think this would be a cool movie to see in 4DX.
  4. Visit the MGM Casino and view their movie-related props and items
  5. Visit the famous Gold & Silver Pawn Shop from the hit TV show Pawn Stars

If we think of more, we’ll add to the list. Feel free to use the comments if you can think of any more.
