I was invited by Joseph Chacra & Sons to watch an advance screening of CREED (which I loved). It was also my first time in the VOX Gold Cinema at Beirut City Centre. Here’s a video they made filming first reactions after the screening-my part is around the 35 second mark!
The lounge was spacious, well decorated and of course the best part….the bar 😉 Actually- the bar is alcohol free so if you’re looking for a sober night out but still want some fancy drinks this is a great option! Great for mamas-to-be! Once you get past the plush sofas, you go into a mini theater, one I imagine Kim Kardashian probably has inside her mansion. 💁
A waiter/waitress then comes by to take your order for food and drinks. They have everything from smoked salmon sandwiches to burgers! I chose the quesadilla platter and although I didn’t expect it to be great, it was actually pretty good! Because the food was served after the movie had already started I didn’t take any pictures of it! 😭 The only problem for me with eating during the movie is that I get too involved with the movie and I forget to eat 😅 The waiters didn’t come to take the platters away which was fine for me as it gave me a chance to nibble on the tortilla chips throughout the movie. I wouldn’t recommend ordering a lot of food as your side table can probably only handle one platter of food and a drink.
I really loved the idea of a private theater and will try to get together a group to hang out and watch a movie together. It would be a fun thing to do for a birthday, family reunion, or even corporate “retreat”!
