Roadhouse Cinemas is holding a practice run, through May 26, for people to check out everything the venue offers from dine-in movies, with waitstaff at the push of a button, to live music on the patio.
Roadhouse Cinemas opened May 13 after a more than $3 million renovation to the former Ultra Star first run theater at the Pavilions Shopping Center located 9090 East Indian Bend Rd. (Talking Stick) and 101, according to a press release. A “soft opening” is being held to preview the cinema’s brewery and sports bar with local craft beer and wine; first-run films and throwback movies; outdoor patio with live music; spacious auditoriums with large, electric reclining seats and ample leg room; unique and fun pre-show; Digital Projection and Dolby 7.1 Digital Surround Sound; restaurant and bakery.
The cinema’s popcorn connoisseurs serve unlimited refills of gourmet, white popcorn for a low cost. Guests can take home a complimentary bag of the “Roadie Corn.” “Roadie” T-shirts, with a movie quote, are for sale in the guest loyalty program that allows for unlimited refills of Roadhouse’s famous popcorn every time they see movies at the venue.
Guests don’t have to come for just a movie as they are welcome for lunch, Happy Hour and dinner at the Roadhouse-style restaurant and bar area in the lobby with an adjoining outdoor patio. Specials are: Thirty-minute lunches are Monday to Friday for $7.95, including beverage, in the theatre lobby and auditorium; Tuesday’s: $6 admission for all seats and shows; Wednesday’s: seniors 55 and older are $4 before 4 p.m.; Happy Hours are 3 to 6 p.m., and 9 to close, Monday to Thursday in the theater lobby bar and even the auditoriums.
Roadhouse Cinemas, a home-grown Arizona business with community involvement endeavors, is geared toward an adult crowd. Seating is reserved. Children over six years old are permitted with a parent; children under 13 will not be allowed in R-rated features.
