School is out and the kids are home for the holidays. We love the winter break because we miss having our older boys at home to just hang out. One of our favorite things to do is go to the movies and watch the latest holiday blockbusters. In case you’ve been hiding under a rock, it is the Star Wars: The Force Awakens opening weekend. Today, I’m sharing our ‘secret’ AMC Theaters location and because it’s the holidays, Itty Bitty Foodies is giving away a $50 AMC gift card to one lucky person to treat their family to tickets and popcorn.
It is a little known fact that AMC Village on the Parkway 9 (Beltline and Tollway in Addison) location has one of nine Dolby Cinema™ theaters in the country. And here’s why we’re so excited. Dolby Cinema™ at AMC Prime™ is a premium cinema offering for moviegoers that combines spectacular image and sound technologies with innovative seating and amazing comfort. Using sophisticated laser projectors to create Dolby Vision, Dolby Cinema™ at AMC Prime™ offers picture color with deeper darks and brighter brights to draw you into the movie like never before.
Last month, we were invited to a special screening of The Good Dinosaur at AMC Village on the Parkway 9. The computer generated animated fantasy is set in a world where dinosaurs never went extinct. The Pixar movie explores the story of a frightened, young dinosaur Arlo who gets washed away by a dramatic rainstorm and meets “Spot”, a spritely Neanderthal boy miles away from his home. Three year old Googie and I laughed as the unlikely pair forms a heartwarming friendship. I cried through certain parts of the movie but no spoilers here. We wrung our hands together in anticipation as the duo embarks on an epic adventure in the hopes of reuniting Arlo with his family. The whole experience was enhanced by the cutting edge technology of the Dolby Cinema™. Imagine what the experience would be like with the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens movie!
Our giveaway is open to US residents. It can be used at all AMC Theaters and we hope you are lucky enough to live in one of the nine cities that have Dolby Cinema™ experience. Good luck! There’s several ways to enter to get multiple entries. If you’re in DFW, vsit AMC Village on the Parkway 9 in Addison for a completely captivating cinematic event thanks to Dolby Cinema at AMC Prime.
