Housed on the third floor of Brickell City Centre, CMX Cinemas promises a “VIP cinema experience”—and it delivers on that promise. CMX, which takes up a whopping 35,759 square feet, has 10 screens and some pretty high-tech audio courtesy of Meyer Sound Laboratories. Before the movie starts, guests can enjoy a drink at CMX’s lobby bar, which sits next to an absolutely massive screen often used for sporting events. Catch happy hour ($5 well drinks, $6 sangria and $4 Bud Light and Blue Moon) Monday through Friday, 3–7pm. Once the commercials start rolling, find your plush seats (which offer USB ports in case you need a charge). And don’t forget to order something to chew on, either from the CMX app or directly from a server. The menu is as expansive as the screen, offering dishes such as popcorn shrimp ($11) and the special king crab roll ($18).
