POLL: Cinépolis Now Open, Will You Be The First to Spend $19.50 on a Ticket?

The luxury theater officially opened its doors on Friday to the public. Are you ready to head over and spend money for "dinner and a movie" all under one roof?

Laguna Niguel's very own high-end luxury theater, is and the VIPs were in full force on Friday to welcome the new kid on the block.

along with President, Debbie Newman, was on hand for the ribbon cutting affairs.

Many chamber and local business leaders were also present to check out the new sleek lobby, , as well as sample food such as sushi, and chocolate cake.

I headed down toward one of the newly revamped auditoriums, plopped into a "" kicked my feet up, but felt a lot like I was in an airplane.

The menu was also in full view and I noticed that the least expensive glass of wine is $9 and a small quesadilla is $10.

Tickets are $19.50 PER PERSON/ADULT for brand new releases, such as Men in Black 3  that are NOT in 3D. If you want to see a new film in 3D, you are looking at $22.50/ADULT PER PERSON.

Are you ready to plunk down the money for "dinner and a movie" this weekend all under one roof?

Grand Opening discounts would be a good idea. Why pay full price for a "high end" place to iron out its kinks? High End means they should have been practicing, practicing, practicing.... so that there are as few mistakes as possible after a real opening.

I will never even visit a theatre that costs 20$ a ticket cause my bed and my tv screen is far more comfortable than 100$ for my family to view a movie. I was incredibly disappointed with the decision of the community to do away with a theatre for everyone in exchange for a theatre for the snobby few. Bourgeoise thinking in this city is redundant and narrow minded to say the least.

Debbie, Disneyland is way more of a "family experience" than a few hours sitting in a movie theater, especially when those same movies can be viewed elsewhere for less. But, I do see how, as a business model, the Cinepolis one may work out. I went to a movie theater with my husband last night and there were 4 couples in theater. If these big theaters are not going to be filled, why not bring in those people who have the money to see a movie in a different, higher end, setting. Like I have stated before though, I wish they had left one or two theaters at regular prices. Maybe they will offer discount days or local coupons and specials.

PCM: A discounted rate would be good during the week.

Bad business move while were still in recession! Even if you can afford the prices I think there out of line. I believe there going to go broke in that location!
