Movie theater bars on the rise

Three years ago, there were only two places you could buy both a movie ticket and a beer: the Town Square 18, then newly acquired by AMC, and the just-opened Galaxy Green Valley Luxury+ Theatre, each a six-mile drive on Sunset Road from the other. Now, 12 cineplexes throughout the Valley allow patrons to imbibe during screenings, with seven quietly joining the fray this year alone: Fiesta Henderson Stadium 12, Brenden Theaters and IMAX 14 at the Palms, Aliante Stadium 16 & IMAX, Green Valley Ranch Stadium 10, Texas Station Stadium 18, Century Orleans 18 and Regal Sunset Station Stadium 13 & IMAX. The last two locations are part of a bigger bar/reclining-seat upgrade slowly platforming throughout their respective chains. Though almost half of the Valley’s movie spots will remain dry by the end of the year, it’s high time this no-brainer amenity becomes increasingly available to grown adults who might otherwise Netflix and Miller Chill.
