UltraStar Cinemas cossets moviegoers in cushy seating as they enjoy Hollywood hits alongside buttery servings of popcorn. Film buffs can peruse the current showtimes by location to handpick an action-packed flick, romantic comedy, or chilling thriller featuring inexplicably aggressive hamsters. The concession stand outfits moviegoers with snacks, drinks, and buckets filled with warm kernels, keeping stomach grumblings to a minimum during showings and providing crunchy projectiles in case of sudden younger-sibling attacks. UltraStar Play it Again Cinemas also offers a selection of Hollywood hits for patrons to enjoy in high-back reclining chairs alongside snacks from the concession stand.

In support of her high-decibel new album, Rihanna kicks off her hotly anticipated LOUD tour with emphatic gusto and a sizzling roster of special guests. Like an art show at a sundae bar, the LOUD tour floods the senses, enchanting audiences with lavishly designed sets, myriad costume changes, move-busting dancers, and Rihanna's songbook of Grammy magnets. Crooner Cee Lo Green augments the songful offerings with his own vocal talents, and Roc Nation rapper and rhythm scientist J. Cole further helps resuscitate ear drums traumatized by the outside world's blaring car horns and shrill howler monkeys.

FilmBar

Beyond FilmBar’s colorful marquee lie two separate, yet complementary spaces. At the beer and wine bar, bartenders fill glasses with a dozen wines and more than 25 craft beers, including brews from Four Peaks and Deschutes. A candy stand and murals depicting Chevy Chase and Queen Latifah hint at what else is here: a 70-seat “microcinema” where audiences take in foreign, independent, cult classic, and local films. The theater is completely soundproofed, so moviegoers won’t have to tune out the buzz of lingering barflies, and bar patrons won't have their evening ruined by the sound of Arnold Schwarzenegger's sobering singing voice.
