32 Days Until Hannukah!

35 Days Until Christmas!

Have you started your holiday shopping yet? I hope you’ve enjoyed my 2019 Gift Guide featuring customizable jewelry (20% off), Disney on Ice (Southern California), theatre tickets (London, New York and Los Angeles), and ways to give back.

Today, I want to share with you a must have gift for EVERYONE. Tickets to the cinema c/o Cinemark. Remember how I raved about their new luxury loungers at Century Stadium 25 in Orange, California? This weekend I had a chance to check them out personally.

FIVE Reasons You Must Buy Tickets to Cinemark for your loved ones this season!

#1: Cinemark provides luxury experiences at economy prices.

As of 10-24-2019, the standard auditorium prices (not including fees) are:

  • General Admission $10.50
  • Seniors (62+) $7.25
  • Children (1 to 11) $7.25

Compare these prices to those of other luxury cinemas and you’ll be able to buy your ticket PLUS a drink (possibly even some popcorn) for roughly the same price.

*prices are subject to change and face an upcharge for specialized auditoriums.

#2: Heated Seats (at select cinemas).

The Joyous Living: Select Cinemark Cinemas feature HEATED seats making these must have tickets for the holidays.

My favorite part of my experience on Saturday was the fact that the seats were heated! On the right side of the luxury loungers (at select cinemas including Century Stadium 25 in Orange) in between the up and down controllers was a small button that allowed you to choose between 3 levels of heated comfort for your seat.

The warmth seeps through under your bottom which means it is not the same level of comfort as your at-home heating pad and/or car seat heater. But it is a whole lot better than the alternative. The heat definitely is appreciated by someone who has chronic pain.

Be warned that you will at some point during the movie need to turn on the heat again. There is a light indicator that tells you when your seat is heated or not.

#3: Well-Organized Concessions Bars Include Alcoholic Options.

At Century Stadium 25, the cinema had 2 concessions bars in the middle of the lobby. At the 1:55pm matinee only one of the bars was open. Also, there was an alcoholic bar open on the side of the lobby just a few steps away from concessions.

There was a queue in and out of the concessions bar making it easier to get the crowd through in an organized manner.

I also loved that they provided stacks of large cardboard trays big enough to share concessions with your friends and family. We all know how expensive concessions can be so this is a huge blessing for families.

#4: Mobile Tickets Are the Way to Go!

You’d think that in this day and age everyone is using mobile tickets. Surprisingly on Saturday that was not the case. There was an extra long queue at the ticket booth both before my showing and as I was leaving closer to 5pm.

So by getting your tickets sent to your mobile device, you will save an extra wait and can walk right up to the ticket taker inside past the concession bars.

#5: Cinema Outings Make for Great Memory Making Moments.

With expected holiday blockbusters to include Disney’s Frozen II and LucasFilm’s The Rise of Skywalker, you’ll be wanting to gather the family together. And with the excellent prices already mentioned, you can hardly go wrong with a holiday outing spent at Cinemark Cinemas!

The Joyous Living: FIVE Reasons You Must Buy Tickets to Cinemark for your loved ones this season!

I can truthfully say that this was one of the BEST cinema experiences I have enjoyed thanks mainly to the comfy loungers and heated seats keeping my pain bearable. A big thank you to Jennifer Becker PR and Cinemark for the seats and opportunity to check out their fabulous Luxury Loungers.

What Movie are you most excited about this holiday season?
