Where are the movies playing near me?
Who of us doesn’t want to escape life for a few hours? Well, we can all agree that going to the theater and watching a movie does just that. And, despite the invention of home theaters, we still love to go to the movie theaters. There is something special about it – the taste of movie popcorn with the soda, the big screen, the large speaker system and being in the audience when all scream, laugh or oooh at the same time. These days, many theaters offer good food and drinks selection at the movie. I believe that’s what makes it worthwhile.
There are several types of movie theaters around the North Dallas areas, Plano, Frisco and Richardson. The most common one around is a multiplex theater which is one with multiple screens within a single building. Dallas movie theaters are keeping up with the latest technology and trends delivering a better movie-going experience …. you will keep coming back for more!

RealD 3D adds depth that puts you in the thick of the action, whether you’re taking a voyage through an undiscovered land or dodging objects that seem to fly into the theatre.
- IMAX, according to Wikipedia, IMAX is a system of high-resolution cameras, film formats, film projectors and theaters known for having very large screens with a tall aspect ratio (of ~1.4:1) and steep stadium seating. And this for sure is designed and positioned to create an intense experience for moviegoers.

Dine in Movie Theaters
Dine-In Movie Theaters have been upping up their game as well, bringing you the best of both worlds – great food and the latest movies. What’s better? – Dinner and a movie!
Many of us are looking for something more whether it’s a full-service bar, luxury lounger or a nice meal they can enjoy on ultra-plush seats.
And, for those that have to sit through a kid’s movie that isn’t quite to their liking they can at least sit back, have a decent meal and, of course, drink a glass of wine or beer to soothe their discomfort.
Some theaters have dining areas and full-service bars and lounge in the lobbies which are great for meeting up before or hanging out after the movie.
