The bar offers 56 martinis and a good-sized wine list and the menu features a touch of Mediterranean flair with a little Asian spice!
Strolling the marble floors of Premiere Theaters Oaks Stadium 10, moviegoers in July 2012 saw something odd beyond the entryway’s stone columns: Batman’s motorcycle from The Dark Knight. Displayed to raise even more anticipation for the trilogy’s conclusion, the prop was the most obvious example of film coming alive at Premiere Theaters, though not the only one. 3D images pop from select Oaks Stadium screens, while the latest digital picture and sound coalesce during immersive Hollywood films. Relax during every feature in tiered rocking seats with retractable armrests and ample room to stretch out.
Equipped with 3-D capabilities and digital sound, Spotlight Theatres Searstown 10 can easily handle the increasingly sophisticated demands of modern film projection. The theater is also preparing for future innovations coming down Hollywood's pipeline. Here are three upgrades on the horizon: Tantalus 3D

Advances in CGI and multitrack editing have allowed Hollywood to layer the final five minutes of every Best Picture–winning film into a single cathartic joyride. The festival circuit has praised the sequence where Michael Corleone orchestrates an assassination of Forrest Gump, Rocky, and Mozart just as they board swan-ships in the Grey Havens, only to be avenged by hordes of medieval Scotsmen led by Lawrence of Arabia.
Dances With Wolves
Now that technology has caught up to Kevin Costner's original vision of the frontier on the cusp of modernity, this classic has received a digital remastering. Lieutenant John Dunbar is stationed on the edge of Sioux territory, but soon finds himself torn between the opposing worlds of unstoppable Western expansion and simple tribal virtues. The bittersweet film tells the universal tale of old versus new. Also, everyone rides unicorns.

When discussing his teaching philosophy with reporters from Central Florida Lifestyle, the owner of Salsa Heat quipped, "if you can walk, you can dance." He himself didn't know much about dancing when he took his first salsa class in the early 90's, but he caught on after just a few sessions, falling in love with the dance's energetic spins and rhythmic movements.
Today, a team of professional dance instructors teach salsa spins and footwork to students of all experience levels. Zumba and bachata classes provide tutoring in other Latin dance styles, and salsa classes for kids teach youngsters dance fundamentals that hone coordination and motor skills. Throughout the year, the staff hosts special events on their spacious dance floors, such as salsa socials, salsa Christmas parties, and salsa-infused celebrations of Robert Heinlein's birthday.
