Can’t remember the last time you and your significant other had an evening out? You need a date night and we know just the place. The Cinemark Reserve movie theatre, which just opened inside Lincoln Square, will spoil you from your average movie-going experience. From state-of-the-art technology, wall-to-wall screens and luxury, electric-powered reclining chairs, to a full-service restaurant with seat-side service, this theatre is the perfect venue for a date night. The best part? It’s for adults only! Read on for the movie-going deets.

So, What Makes This New Theater So Special?
First of all, there’s now no more rushing to make sure that you get a good seat. You can reserve your seat ahead of time by using the Cinemark app which guarantees you preferred seating no matter what time you arrive. Popular new movies will fill up fast, so the earlier you can schedule your reservation, the better. If you are more spontaneous, don’t fret, every seat in each of the six stadium auditoriums offers a great view. And we’re not joking!
A State-Of-The-Art Movie Watching Experience
The Cinemark Reserve Lincoln Square features curved, wall-to-wall screens that illuminate with the brightest digital projection system available and surround sound which will make your movie come alive that much more. Since the theatre is set aside for those ages 21 and up, you no longer have to fear a little person kicking the back of your seat. In fact, these are not your typical theater seats. They are plush, heated, ergonomic recliners that are so nice, you’ll want to take one home with you. The seats recline backward and extend a footrest and each comes with a special button to call over a server when needed and a table to place your food on. The only thing that would make the seating even better would be if they included a cat to sleep on your lap.
A Dining Experience Like No Other
Though movie theater dining isn’t new to Seattle, Cinemark states that this is the only theater (at this time anyway) that offers full, seat-side service for every chair and the food choices are far from typical. Appetizers include Rosemary Fries with Chipotle Mayonnaise, Pulled Pork Nachos and Blistered Shishito Peppers and entrees choices include Salmon Street Style Tacos, Poke Tuna and Patatas Bravas. Sandwich choices include the ½ pound Bistro Burger and ¼ pound Southwest Black Bean Burger as well as popular faves like mini sliders and quesadillas.
Flatbread pizza is a specialty with choices like prosciutto & arugula, tandoori chicken and everyone’s favorite pepperoni. Those wanting something lighter will appreciate the four different salads on the menu as well. Psst… be sure to save room for the Rockslide Brownie Sundae, Caramel Apple Crisp or the Vanilla Bean Crème Burlee for dessert. Of course, the Cinemark Reserve still offers traditional theater candy and popcorn if that’s more your moving watching beat.

In addition to soda, the Cinemark Reserve also offers a full line of espresso beverages, available both hot and cold, and choices of wine and beer. You can also enjoy beverage and snacks before or after the show in the bar and lounge area with an exterior terrace and table seating.
