I finally made it to a Gold Class movie screening at Event Cinemas, Marion with a girlfriend over the weekend and we had a wonderful time. In actual fact, moviegoers can immerse themselves in this amazing experience any day of the week - going at the weekend however, adds that extra bit of class.
It does come at a price though, particularly if you order some of the yummy items that are available from the impressive menu, but this exuberant treat offers the rare opportunity to enjoy a movie in an intimate setting with only 40 other people.
To the busy working mother who has limited leisure time, the Gold Class movie experience offered my friend and I the luxury to indulge in some great food and nice company in a relaxing, calm and child-free environment.
The movie tickets were purchased in advance and we arrived at the exclusive Gold Class lounge one hour before the movie started to enjoy a drink (from the fully licensed bar) and to spend time working through the extensive menu.
Some of the delicacies my girlfriend and I enjoyed included gigantic crispy beer-battered onion rings, accompanied by a tasty barbecue sauce, mouth-watering parmesan and truffle fries served in a mini chip-fryer with a yummy aioli dip and the BBQ chicken pizza with roasted red peppers & red onion jam. We also ordered from both dessert menus; one of which offers a range of heavenly chocolate recipes from Lindt.
Our food was enjoyed in the comfort of the wide reclining seats - which provide the ultimate relaxation and viewing experience - and was served at various points during the film by our dedicated waiter.
The Gold Class experience at Event Cinemas, Marion offers an opportunity to spend some much needed quality adult time with a friend or loved one and, because of its exclusiveness, makes you feel as though you have been truly pampered. As for the choice of film - I don't think it really matters what you watch when you are in Gold Class, rather it's who you watch it with that makes it so special.
