Cinemas for Date Night

April 25, 2018

Grab the popcorn and your beau to cosy up with a film à deux at one of these cinemas in Chi-Town, spanning indie arthouse to lavish VIP.

For edgy arthouse screenings, a trip to Music Box Theatre is a must, thanks to its eclectic bill of foreign, independent, cult and classic films. Taking movie-goers back to the roaring 1920s, the 800-seat theatre has a quirky, old-school vibe plus atmospheric lounge and garden for a post-flick drink.

Add a touch of glamour to date night with the ShowPlace ICON at the Roosevelt Collection’s exclusive VIP package. Relax in the modern, high-tech theatre in the ‘red carpet, reserved area’, complete with reclining balcony seats, tipples and nibbles. Showing everything from Hollywood blockbusters to theatre screenings, this is the ultimate date-night venue for film-buffs. Hint: make time for a pitstop in the retro-style lobby and bar.

Combining a film and foodie experience, the laidback and minimalist Davis Theater on Lincoln Avenue is attached to equally pared-back restaurant Carbon Arc. Sip from the extensive wine and craft beer list while grazing on mod-American comfort eats such as scallops with fried sage and vanilla aioli or lobster mac n’ cheese. No time to dine? Snag a box of the housemade gourmet popcorn for a mid-movie snack. Now, action!
