The Landmark at Greenwood Village

Saw Burn After Reading last night at the new Landmark Theatre at Greenwood Village. The Landmark is an upscale development just off of Belleview and I-25 with luxury condos ($800s - $2.7M), nice restaurants, pubs, and of course a movie theater.

The theater is nice. It has a decent bar in the lobby where you can obviously order a beer or mixed drink but also appetizers and/or unique treats like cherry jalapeno chocolate bars. The ticket price ($12.00) includes a complimentary popcorn bar and soda fountain. The best part is that it's self-service so you don't have to wait on a disgruntled junior high school student while the show is starting. Did I mention that the drinks and treats ordered in the bar can follow you into the theater for the show? I opted for a beer but the couple next to us cracked a bottle of wine during the movie. And for $2 more, you can upgrade to VIP seats. These are large leather "couples" seats with nice oversized armrests for food and drinks that are situated in the choicest location in the theater. VIP status allows you to seat before everyone else and place orders with a hostess for more treats from the bar.

The movie? I liked it but it wasn't my favorite Coen brothers film. All in all it was a great experience - novel for now but I'm sure the writing's on the wall for other theaters to follow suit.
