Nestled in the new and luxurious River Oaks Shopping District, iPic Theaters offers a glamorous movie-going experience. The theater creates a unique experience for guests, giving them something beyond sitting shoulder to shoulder with other movie-goers. Houston’s the first to use iPic’s groundbreaking POD seating system with fully reclinable chairs and leg rests. Lounge in comfortable pods for two, swathed in soft blankets and pillows and watch the latest blockbuster hits like The Hunger Games, 007 Spectre, and Creed. Touted as the “ultimate movie experience,” we’re inclined to agree, making it a perfect date night experience.
While kicking back to watch the silver screen, premium food and drink items can be purchased. Forget the overpriced popcorn and soda—you can get a delicious BBQ Chicken Pizza for what you’d normally pay at any regular theater. iPic offers a membership program for loyal customers to enhance their visits; membership levels allow members to purchase tickets in advance and earn points with each ticket and food and drink purchase.
While we definitely enjoyed the food with the theater experience, we’re singing praises on celebrity and three-time James Beard award-winning chef Sherry Yard’s dining concept, the Tuck Room. She teams up with acclaimed mixologist Adam Seger to deliver mouthwatering treats and cocktails, a perfect prelude to the premium experience that the theater offers. We feasted on amazing ahi tuna appetizers, moist lobster rolls, pulled pork sandwiches that BBQ lovers could love and addictive cheese croquettes. Foodies rejoice!
The cocktails are bespoke and tailored to you. Local ingredients and spirits are the key to some of our favorites like the zesty Handsome Little Devil, a powerful take on a Bloody Mary. The whole emphasis is on social dining, making it a perfect gathering spot for celebrations, even if a movie is not in the plans for the night.
Two thumbs up from H Texas!
