iPic Theater in Scottsdale
15257 N. Scottsdale Rd
Scottsdale, AZ 85254
When we think of movie theaters, nothing in Arizona compares to this movie theater. Who else offers Premium Plus Seating of your very own reserved micro-suede reclining chairs complete with a pillow and blanket? Now let's throw in free popcorn and in-cinema food and beverage service. It's like the spa of movie theaters. When you walk in, it feels like you're walking into a swanky Scottsdale bar. The guest service desk has a modern vibe with about 50 softly lit light bulbs hanging over it and a smiling face to pull up your ticket or assist you in purchasing one. To your right is a self serve wine dispenser and Tanzy's grab and go counter, to your left is Salt, the theater's full bar.
We prefer to make an online reservation and choose our seats ahead of time, these seats fill up fast - especially for new releases, and that way you know you have a seat instead of leaving it to chance. You can pick up your reserved tickets at the guest services desk or one of the express kiosks. Once you have your tickets, you can wander over to Salt, the adjoining bar, or Tanzy Restaurant for modern Mediterranean cuisine. We prefer to stop at Salt's bar for a glass of wine since the Premium Plus seating has in-cinema food service from Tanzy express for the first 20 minutes of the movie. You can carry your drink straight from Salt into the theater, where they have drink trays and built in bottle holders for wine, or wait to order in the theater.
You do pay for what you get - non members pay $27 a seat for Premium Plus Seating (pictured top right), $18.50 for Premium seating (pictured bottom right). For select films or showtimes, members pay $15 for Premium, and $20 for Premium Plus seats. But when you consider other theaters are $10 a seat and $5 for popcorn, this isn't that ridiculously expensive. Membership is free, and gives the discounted pricing, the ability to purchase tickets online, advanced purchasing for online blockbusters, a free ticket on your birthday, and "Get More Tuesdays" with drink discounts. Premium Seating (bottom) gives movie goers a large leather recliner, Premium Plus gives fully reclining micro suede recliners where the footrest raises electronically at the push of a button. These special red recliners also get complimentary popcorn, a blanket and pillow, and in theater dinner and drink service for the first 20 minutes of the movie. In our minds, there's no question of where to sit if you're going to make it an iPic night.
When it comes to seeing a movie in the lap of luxury, the iPic is your place to go. It's modern, sophisticated, and built for pleasure. Like we said earlier - it's the spa of movie theaters.
