For the record, I HATE elitism of any kind. BUT! For something as special as getting to see the new Halloween movie with the same friends I watched the second movie with at a Halloween party back in grade 6? I could not say no! And I am so glad I didn’t.
We went to the one at Don Mills and ALL their theatres are VIP. I think that says a little something about the caliber of this mall.
Do you see the menu popping up for us to go through in front of like we were on a plane?
We literally could have eaten dinner here as we watched the movie. We stayed pretty traditional except for the mini donuts which were fantastic.
I will not mention how long ago that Halloween party was but will say that I think it solidified our collective love of scary movies. Screaming and huddling together watching a movie completely inappropriate for our age group at the time made me realize that being scared can be fun! I was hooked.
When it came to ordering the food, we had a server come right up to us to take our order. They charged and gave me for a large popcorn when I asked for a small one. BTW, they do not do things like “combos”.
They also do not do things like “slushies”. Instead I got a virgin strawberry daiquiri! Talk about fancy pants!
OK, it was scary. Mike Meyers will always be scary. Jamie Lee Curtis was so good in it, man, I just adore her. Is it a perfect movie? No. Did we bite our nails while watching it, cringing and freaking out in our big leather chairs? Yes! I was completely in knots by the time the film was over. It was AWESOME!
I love the fact that the Don Mill VIP Movie Theatre has its own cafe/restaurant so you can sit, order a drink and yes, eat more food and then discuss the movie. We also had a lot of catching up to do so we closed the place.
I wish I could say the brownie was great, it was good in some places but dry in others. I got an adult coffee and it was a little cold, my friend’s was too and Dawn The Foodie Realtor got the smallest martini on the planet. This part was not impressive.
This was such a special event for me but I probably will not be back for a while because it sure is not cheap. That said, if I ever disappear one day you may find me living at this theatre. It has so many things I love, it is a complete oasis. Movies, food, movies, food… I think I may have found my personal nirvana in Toronto!
This was seriously one of the coolest things I have ever done. I loved every second of it and can not wait to do it again for another special movie occasion. Pet Semetery perhaps?
