Really cool movie experience. Helps reset expectations of a theater as service oriented. Full bar and menu movie seating in discrete cubbies. Bar and restaurant with private rooms up the escalator. Friendly and energetic staff. Expensive tickets, sell out well in advance. Best to buy before online.


iPic takes the movie going experience to an entirely new level. It's basically your one stop shop for a date night. You have a selection of seating options. I went with a friend and we got a 'pod'. The 'pod' comes with a little table, reclining chairs, blankets and pillows. In the theater you have popcorn served seat side throughout the movie. You also have waitstaff that you order your drinks and meal from your seat. 


As most things go in NY I was expecting this new experience to be severely over priced. However, I was pleasantly surprised. Although your movie ticket is more expensive than you're used to paying, the drinks and food were moderately priced. 


The complex also has a full service bar and restaurant up stairs. I even saw a sign for the rooftop lounge coming soon. It's literally a one stop shop for food, drink and entertainment. If you're not into the movies just go inside to check out the space. It has a great vibe and is unlike most places downtown. Check it out. 


My only critic would be that they seem to still be working out the flow during the movie. The bright blue call buttons to usher your waiter over were distracting. It's also a bit distracting to have people walking around and talking to others during a movie. I'm sure they will work out how best to do this, but for now it seems a bit distracting.
