Every week, my wife and I decide to take time to treat ourselves to a date night, and this can include everything from miniature golf, visiting a local museum, or trying out a new restaurant. It’s a lot of fun, and we each get a kick out of it, but for some reason, as open to new things as we are, we’ve never considered the possibility of enjoying a date night at a cinema brewery.
It would make a lot of sense. Both of us enjoy a good beer every so often, and we like watching movies. Why wouldn’t a cinema brewery make the short list of places to check out? Well, truth be told, we’re creatures of habit. Our date night environments, though different every week, are still very familiar. As such, for us, going to the movies means buying a big tub of popcorn and a massive soft drink to enjoy while watching the screen for the next two hours.
You know, the more I think about it, the more I realize that a cinema brewery is actually the answer to much more than just where my wife and I should go for dinner. For instance, when it comes to the brewery part of things, our local cinema brewery makes its own beer in-house, with the whole operation visible from the lobby. We can actually see where our beer comes from. Moreover, master brewers run things and aim at creating unique beers. I’ll admit that our youth was not full of discerning behavior when it came to drinking brewskis. Now, my wife and I enjoy a well-crafted, flavorful beer in moderation.
When it comes to food, we are big fans of big flavor, local ingredients, freshness, and quality. Our cinema brewery decided long ago that the usual movie food fare like popcorn and boxes of candy needed to be revamped. Now, we can have a stellar meal that checks off all of the important boxes in terms of preparation and satisfaction. What’s even cooler is that we can enjoy this amazing food, and the killer beer, while watching a movie! It’s perhaps here that our local cinema brewery has really made a case for itself.
Over the years, my wife found herself unhappy with the quality of movie theaters near us. Even though I was OK with things, I knew she was not content, and this meant being very particular about which theaters we frequented. Things have changed though because our cinema brewery has upped the ante with a tremendous sound system, very comfortable seating akin to what feels like home furniture, and we can now have a server interact with us during a movie. It’s a perfect merging of a restaurant & your local watering hole.
I think that date night will be different from now on. Including a cinema brewery into the rotation of places to spend time together is more than just a place to have dinner. An improved movie-watching experience, better food, on-site beer brewing, and even gathering area that let’s you still take in a great meal & drink without needing a movie ticket are all perfect reason why a cinema brewery may be the right place for you, too.
