Theme Day: Stylish

Another theme day on City Daily Photo has arrived, is this year going by fast or what.
I digress, this month's theme is "Stylish." In Santa Fe the stylish thing to do recently is to visit the new Violet Crown theater. It is actually a theater, restuarant and bar all in one building. The VC offer larger seating, with tray tables so that you can take your dinner/drinks into the movie with you. You can also reserve your seats, no more rushing to get your favorite seat!

I've never been to one of these "stylish" theaters, although my daughter and I took in a movie on Christmas Day in San Antonio where you could purchase hot dogs, hamburgers, beer and wine, more like a ball park rather than a theater. That one appeared to be quite old, dark and dank. It kind of gave me the shudders and was nothing like this one. If I had a glass of wine during a movie I'd probably never make it past the coming attractions!

How cool that you can reserve your seat!

I'm just attracted to the design and the color. The box is stylin'! Is this an old structure being reborn? Is the color bronze? Gold? Brown?

A great take and a stylish theater indeed.
I am not sure though that I would enjoy a movie at the same time as having a dining tray in front of me but oh well everyone is different.

Wow, I've not seen anything like that around here. Great post, Randy. I remember olden theaters with loges where you could smoke while watching the movie. :)

i'm sure it will be hot with the 'chic' crowd. :)

This seems to be the latest way to see a movie. Maybe it's the movie industry's attempt to garner more customers in the digital age. Did you know that the AMC Theatre at the Esplanade has turned into one of these? It's now the closest theatre to where I live so I've been there several times.

I have heard of this kind of theater but never been to one. Very stylish!

What a great concept.

The architecture is very cool!

That looks very cool, Randy! The corten steel colour is perfect for Santa Fe and will become more so as time passes. I like all the lines in the building a lot.
