The Hollywood Palms Cinema is the latest of our full-service, fully integrated Restaurant, Bar and Movie Theater to open in the greater Chicagoland area. We seat you in high-backed leather executive chairs in our beautifully decorated auditoriums featuring state of the art digital picture and sound. We use solid silver coated screens with the highest reflectivity, creating the best and sharpest image you can experience. We bring you movies the way they were really meant to be seen, big, bright, bold and beautiful; with terrific sound and in style, comfort and ease of your very own leather rocking chair....you don't even have to share an arm rest! We will bring right to your table everything to eat and drink that your little heart could desire.
The first thing you do is purchase your tickets at the box office just like any other theater. You can buy advance tickets online or at the box office during the 1st two weeks of a new title only, otherwise they are available at the box office.Our normal everyday admission price is just $8, at or below those other neon trimmed film bunkers and we do offer discount admission to seniors and students and for any matinee before 5:30pm.
Those under the age of 18 must always be accompanied by and seated with a responsible adult regardless of the film theatrical rating. Children under 4 years of age will not be permitted in any R rated film after 9:00pm. Children must not be disruptive to our other guests. Please be courteous to your fellow movie goers. Patrons involved in excessive conversation, loud or disruptive behavior will be promptly removed from the auditorium without refund.The use of cell phones (including text messaging), cameras and recorders is strictly prohibited.
Children must be well behaved and not be disruptive during our feature presentation or they may be asked to leave. As a matter of fact, so do adults so please don't narrate the movie for others and hold any comments until after the film is over while you relax out in the bar in the lobby. We do not give cash refunds on tickets. We always recommend that you and your group arrive early to enjoy the widest selection of seats.
You must be at least 21 years old to consume alcoholic beverages. Valid government issued picture I.D. is always required for anyone wishing to purchase an alcoholic beverage. Proof of age is required by the law and the boss.
In one of those traditional neon-trimmed film bunkers, you would line up at a concession stand and wait for that nasty over-priced high caloric gooey stuff. Not here, there are bars. At our palace you enter a beautifully decorated lobby area where adults can sit at either one of two bars, fully stocked with not just beer & wine, but all of your favorite cocktails, frozen house specialties and hot coffee drinks. You can check out our full food menu at the bar or grab a soda, a bucket of our famous popcorn topped with real butter from real cows, (not that pre-popped, stale, imitation styrofoam popcorn covered with that awful artificially flavored yellow soybean syrup), or even enjoy a bag of your favorite movie candy. We recommend that you get your first drink in the lobby, it gives you something to do while you wait to be seated. You can carry any beverages from our bar into the auditorium so you have something to sip on while your server makes their way to your table.
Generally about twenty minutes prior to the scheduled start time, we will announce when seating begins for your film; at which time you will proceed to the usher who will direct you to one of our many highly stylized, individually themed auditoriums.
Our auditoriums feature terraced seating in your very own high-back executive leather chair, not bolted to the ground or attached to the seat beside you. Rather than cup holders, we feature an actual table or counter in front of you with plenty of room for your food, drinks and we even provide leg room - What a concept!
From this point on, our unobtrusive ninja wait staff will provide full food & beverage service during the film. You can order from our menu featuring great appetizers, terrific sandwiches, gourmet pizza, and devilishly good deserts all carefully chosen to be easily eaten in the dark, so as not to distract you from the film. All food comes out once it is ready to make sure everything is as wonderful as possible, but this does mean food will not come out at the same time. Please feel free to order your desert when you order your food, we will make sure it comes out after you finish your meal! Service is available up until twenty minutes prior to the end of your film, at which time guest checks will be presented and closed. The staff always appreciates your gratuities.
We do not take reservations so we always suggest you plan to arrive 20-40 minutes prior to show time. We do seat on a first come, first served basis so naturally the earlier you arrive, the greater selection of seats you will enjoy.
There is no better way to watch a movie and we aren't kidding. So if you can find a better ticket, buy it!
