Next month in Texas a new movie theater is opening up that looks more like Caesar's Palace than it does a place you go to watch movies. It's called the Palladium AVX theater, and its grand Greek-themed appearance gives off a luxurious, over-the-top feel we don't often see with your run-of-the-mill neighborhood theater. It'll house 22 screens, bowling, expanded food and drink options, and more, mixing both art house and Hollywood fare. It sounds incredibly cool, and it's yet more proof that theaters are evolving into destinations where you can do more than just watch a movie.
So in honor of this new monstrosity over in Texas, this week we want to know the most luxurious movie theater you've ever had the pleasure of visiting. What is it called, where is it located, and what are some of the cool things they have there that you haven't seen anywhere else?
Sound off below and enjoy your weekend at the movies!

There is know other theater in the state of Texas like the Palladium theater in San Antonio and the new one opening real soon in Katy Texas Palladium AVX it is the best theater that I like to go to. Roy Quezada from San Antonio Texas
There is a small theater chain with four locations in the Portland Or. / Vancouver Wa. area called Cinetopia. They have luxurious movie parlor and living room cinemas with waiter service that serve full meals and a enormous selection of wines and craft beers. Not cheap but the best movie going experience I have ever had.
Two in the Chicago area: The Muvico in Rosemont (A nice restaurant plus a VIP balcony with attendants, I went three times for that service) and iPic in South Barrington (Nice lounge, armchairs in the theater with pillows and blankets...I totally wanted to see "Your Highness" while being treated like a princess. :D )
The AMC Marina Dine-In or the iPic in Pasadena are movie theater going at its most luxurious. Fully reclining leather chairs, full menu and drink menu - can't beat it. Or the $7 first showing price on the weekends at the Marina Dine-In. First class at a bargain. Sweet.
I've heard of it
The El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood for opening weekend of OZ: The great and powerful and they had a magic show just before the movie started
"Welcome to the party, pal."
"I am serious... and don't call me Shirley."
"When am I gonna learn how to punch?"
"These go to eleven."
"Benjamin, have you ever been severely beaten about the face & neck?"
"Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming."
"You're gonna need a bigger boat."
"Jessica's got cable."
