Wednesday’s Motivation

It’s Wednesday friends! We’re halfway to the weekend. Yay!! It’s been a hectic week already for me. The kiddos headed back to school and our summer life is officially over (sad face). However, with every new school year comes the reminder that Fall is right around the corner. Fall is my favorite Season! Pumpkins, sweaters (sorta, it is So. Fl. after all), and selling & listing houses in my favorite town! So chin up buttercups, it’s Wednesday!

Going To The Movies In Jupiter Just Got A Whole Lot Better

Growing up in Jupiter we always had the Jupiter Movie Theater as a place to go. It was where we first learned to have our Moms drop us off at the far side of the plaza, so we wouldn’t be seen getting out of her car. Mortifying!! Looking back though, of course our Moms were driving us, we were in middle school. Who did we think we were fooling?? Haha!

But I digress. Having a movie theater was totally awesome. However, over the years it slowly went downhill. Showing it’s age and never being updated. Your feet would definitely stick to the floor, every time. The chairs were gross and over all, it just wasn’t a fun theater to go to. Once the theater at Downtown at The Gardens was built, I never went back to the Jupiter Theater.

That has forever been changed! Guys!! We have a Cinépolis Theater, right here in Jupiter now, and It. Is. AWESOME.

My husband and I went this past weekend to see Mission Impossible. The theater was really beautiful inside! I felt like we were walking into a really nice hotel lobby.

IMG_8460

IMG_8462Now, arriving early to the movie doesn’t mean you have to wait in an almost empty theater. Pull up a stool at the bar & enjoy a frosty beverage. They even have my favorite, local beer on tap. The Chancellor by TBC! Don’t have time to finish your beer before the show starts? No worries, just bring it in with you!

Cinépolis Jupiter offers two different ways to see a movie.

From their website: “The theater’s “Cinépolis Luxury Cinema” auditoriums offer guests a luxury movie-going experience with fully reclining leather seats and in-theater waiter service and dining with full bar, available at the touch of a button. Guests of the theater’s “Cinépolis” auditoriums can enjoy a premium theater experience with comfortable seating and access to the gourmet menu and full bar in the lobby area.”

We opted for the Luxury Cinema and loved it! Large comfortable chairs that allow you to put your feet up, seat side service and a full menu were features that made our visit very enjoyable.

We enjoyed the chicken fingers & the Chocolate & Carmel Popcorn. They were both very tasty!
