Alpine Cinema's eight auditoriums entrance audiences with newly released and 3-D films projected in state-of-the-art Dolby Digital sound. Moviegoers can grab a friend, date, or their favorite Roeper and settle in with a current blockbuster such as The Help, starring Emma Stone, or flicks such as The Debt, starring Helen Mirren and Avatar leading man Sam Worthington. Two bags of popcorn with unlimited refills help facilitate "accidental" hand holding during romantic scenes while simultaneously keeping loud stomachs from complaining in the middle of Steven Soderbergh's star-studded Contagion's climactic dance number.
Alpine Cinemas eight theaters make current movies come alive as massive screens merge with Dolby Digital sound to keep each crowd of 200 or more immersed in the action. The signature theater injects even more realism with roomy stadium seats and 3-D capabilities that add an extra dimension without having to bring a 20-foot friend to act out the movie. Before shows, guests can stock up on refreshments at the snack bar equipped with savory popcorn and bubbly soda.
