Watching a movie gives audiences a chance to capture that moment’s resonant je ne sais quoi, which is French for “popcorn smell.” Rejoice in artful concessions with today's Groupon: for $17, you get two movie tickets and one large popcorn at Cinetopia in Beaverton (up to a $44 value).
Lauded by a multitude of media outlets, Cinetopia showers cinephiles with towering screens, heart-thumping sound systems, and opulent seating. Moviegoers select their preferred blockbuster before sidling up to the concession stand featuring a full menu and covering a large popcorn in an array of gourmet real butter-based toppings fresh from the cinema's in-house kitchen. Flicks unspool in an assortment of opulent theaters, such as the Movie Parlor auditoriums, decked out with a super-HD 30-foot screen, ensuring that films are viewable in all corners of the theater or even when watchers are huddled behind the luxurious, sofa-like seats, as well as 18 surrounding LED screens for environment. The Grand XL theaters, with monstrous HD screens ranging up to 70 feet, depict acclaimed actors as only slightly shorter than their actual height, and premium leather seats are 30 percent wider and keep bodies comfortable for a range of movie emotions. For moviegoers 21 and older, the Living Room theater offers ottomans, super-HD projection, and preshow live music on weekends.
After enjoying a sing-along-filled action flick or a string-theory-themed romantic comedy, stroll through the complex’s on-site art gallery to view eye-catching pieces. Or, stop by the in-house restaurant and devour a postfilm dinner complemented by selections from the Wine Spectator award-winning wine list.
Each of Cinetopia's three locations adds a touch of luxury to the movie-watching experience, accenting stunning, lifelike projections of blockbusters with fine wine, a selection of local microbrews, fresh market-to-table cuisine, and plush, cozy seats.
Along with grand auditoriums and living-room theaters, the Beaverton location houses two GXL theaters with massive 62-foot and 70-foot screens, 7.1 Meyer EXP sound, 4096p projection, and luxury seating. The Portland Tribune was impressed by the theater's "lighted boardwalk and fountain, colorful architectural design elements, and movie images dancing along windows." Films unreel onto super-high-definition, 30-foot screens in the exclusive parlor-room theaters, which pair Beaverton patrons' movie experience with a full in-theater restaurant service.
The Vancouver Mall 23 location boasts four enormous GXL screens up to 80 feet with 4096p projection—four times the resolution of Blu-ray—and an exclusive immersive 64.2 channel Dolby ATMOS sound system. It also boasts five luxury-themed movie parlors, nine living rooms, and five grand auditoriums with steep stadium-style seating to help guests enjoy a clear view of the screen.
The Mill Plain 8 location boasts five grand auditorium theaters, each equipped with 50-foot, 2048p screens. Rows of reclining seats ascend at a steep angle up the theater for unimpeded views, and ejection buttons allow audiences to escape the theater during too-scary shower scenes. The venue also houses three living-room theaters for patrons age 21 and older with plush seats, footrests, pillows, and waiters on hand. On an overhead balcony, live music performances fill these spaces before Friday and Saturday shows.
