The Hottest Summer Destination For the Best Movie Experience
There’s no doubt that Hollywood and the fashion world are closely entwined. The fashion world shows up in movies often, and it seems like every fashion house is vying for a place on the red carpet. The fashion Island luxury movie theater in Van Nuys, California is the brainchild of a man named Jerry Izenberg. He wants to create a similar environment where movie goers can enjoy a quality film, and if they want to dine and relax afterwards, he wants their experience to be enhanced as well.
It all started when he was trying to come up with an idea for a business meeting, and the first thing he thought of was bringing in the movie theater. It wasn’t long before he had bought the land and began constructing his dream Hollywood inspired location. Today, the grandiose structure still sits – but you can’t see any of it. It’s strictly secret!
When the first of the grandiose glass and steel buildings came down, it was such a grand deal that Universal Studios quickly purchased the land and began construction right next door. Construction has been going great for the past thirteen years, and it’s about time that the theater finally opens. Universal Pictures and Disney both own part of the property. They don’t have total control of what happens there, but they are very involved. Some of the concepts they have implemented there are so unique, you may never see them practiced at a big box retail outlet.
A big part of the concept is that every seat will be convertible. So not only do you have four walls of seats, you’ll also have a restaurant where people can eat and sit back. The restaurant is divided into several levels with different levels of service and food. If you want a romantic evening, you can order a private dinner for two. Of course, you don’t need to stop for a movie when you’re in the mood to dine out – you’ve got multiple screens showing any selection imaginable. In fact, you probably won’t even need a babysitter anymore!
You can choose from a variety of foods at the restaurant, including everything from fast food to gourmet. There are two restaurants on the island itself: The Westgate Inn & Suites on the lower level, and Islands of Adventure’s Sequoyah Steakhouse on the upper level. The top floor has a full bar and several movie screens. Guests usually reserve their seats for a long time in advance, so be sure to get your reservations in before hand. The Portola Hotel California is the preferred hotel for most visitors, but the beautiful San Diego Zoo is also a nice alternative.
If you’d rather be outside in the warm, California sun, you can always go to the beach. There’s a free, all-inclusive beach vacation package offered by the Westgate Inn & Suites. Or you can stay at the nearby Ocean View Place, which is within walking distance of all of the attractions mentioned above. The place has a cute, out-of-the-way feel, perfect for quiet evenings on a nice, quiet stretch of beach. Be sure to take a good umbrella along for your trip.
Of course, there’s still the all-inclusive luxurious hotel option available to you, complete with its own fitness center and lounge, where you can kick back and relax with a glass of wine while enjoying the latest Hollywood blockbusters. Or if you want to go more casually, you might enjoy the San Diego Zoo, SeaWorld, or the local golf courses (including Jack Nicklaus’ Gold Coast Country Club). You’ll definitely want to check out the San Diego Zoo when you’re there, since it has one of the largest collections of animals in the world. Plus, the San Diego Zoo’s grounds are an absolutely beautiful sight.
The Fashion Island luxury movie theater promises to offer you one of the best experiences you can have at a movie. With its huge screen, digital sound, and comfortable seating, you’ll feel like you’re part of the action as you watch the latest blockbuster release. Plus, the food options at the Island provide a dining experience like no other. You can dine on some of the best food from around the world right on the beach. And best of all, the prices won’t break your budget.
