Catch a Summer Flick! {Sponsored by Cinemark Roanoke}


Disclaimer :: The newly opened Cinemark Roanoke invited Fort Worth Moms Blog contributor Hayley to tour its facilities and provided her (and you too, dear reader; just wait!) with complementary movie passes in exchange for the tour and review.

DMN Topper - Roanoke NOI’m not sure how this happened, but summer is almost over. When I was a kid, my parents squeezed out the last bit of summer ’til the bitter end, and most years we did that with two or three movies in one week. When my girl is old enough, I plan on doing the exact same thing. This week I toured the perfect place for it.  A brand new Cinemark just opened in Roanoke; I definitely think you should check it out.

The XD screen is so massive I look tiny standing in front of it. In fact, I think this is my new favorite picture of myself

The theater has a ton of fantastic features:

  • Massive self-serve concession stand with extended menu (hello hamburgers, Starbucks, wine, and craft beer)
  • 14 theaters, including one XD auditorium with a wall-to-wall screen
  • Arcade room

These are great and everything, but my favorite part is the seating. Yeah I said it, the seating. Every seat in the place is a “Cinemark Luxury Lounger.” Let me tell you, those boys won’t disappoint. In fact, I’m willing to bet you’ll spot a tired mama or two passed out in those seats by the end of your movie. The other great thing about the seating? Everything is reserved. This has become more and more popular in movies theaters, of course, but in this new theater, every seat can be reserved.

The “Luxury Lounger.” Can these be installed in my house??

Also, in case you’re looking for a indoor late summer/early fall birthday party venue (you know to avoid the SAUNA we live in), look no further. Cinemark Roanoke has a party room available. If a cool, no clean-up, concession-filled party with a movie in the middle sounds good to you, click here for more details.

All in all, I was very impressed with Cinemark Roanoke. I’ll be honest: Before I got there I was thinking new movie theater, same old show, but I was wrong. The AC was flowing, the aroma of butter drenched the air, the leather chairs were plush, and everything was sparkling (literally, they were shining and scrubbing as I walked around). Just the fact that it’s brand new and squeaky clean was enough to get me excited (no sticky floors or butter coated counters people!). So catch a flick at the new Cinemark in Roanoke this weekend. It’s the perfect way to cap off your family’s summer . . .  and if you have the time, squeeze in a couple of shows. I promise it’s a memory your kids won’t forget.

Hayley was born in Fort Worth and raised in the small, nearby town of Bridgeport. She married her husband, Derric, in 2009 and before settling back in Fort Worth, they made stops in Washington D.C., Dallas, and San Antonio. Isabelle Story arrived in 2014, and Hayley is lucky enough to spend her days at home with her precious girl . . . although they’re rarely actually at home as Isabelle likes to see and be seen. Apart from her family, books are Hayley’s passion. She is an avid reader and her lifelong dream is to write a novel. If she isn’t chasing Isabelle or stuck in a book, you can find her exploring this city she adores, trying new restaurants with Derric, doling out reading recommendations, running at a local park (in bad form), at Kyle Field watching her beloved Aggies, or making irresponsible decisions at a local Half Price Books.
