With so many streaming services available at our fingertips, it can be easy to forget about the movie theatre experience. There’s just something about it — watching a movie with a crowd of people, that awesome sound system, and of course, the movie snacks. Karen from Ace Cinemas loves encouraging people to come down, grab some popcorn and enjoy cinema experience.
So, it turns out there’s more to the movies than just catching the newest release — there’s celebration and joy! Karen recalls a particularly special moment that made her smile. “We recently had a gentleman’s 60th birthday movie night. His daughter in the UK had prepared a surprise presentation piece, and we played it before the movie. He was brought to tears of happiness.”
When she needs some extra fuel to help her go above and beyond for her customers, you can find Karen grabbing a cappuccino with two sugars from the lovely team at Muffin Break. If she’s feeling a bit more peckish, she’ll head to San Churros for their decadent churros and dessert.
Along with birthday parties, there’s another service Ace Cinemas offer that Karen thinks people might not know about. “We do sensory screenings each month for people with sensory issues and autism. We also do open caption screenings weekly for those who are hearing impaired.” How awesome is that!
In her downtime, Karen likes visiting the Swan Valley and going on one of their delicious food and wine tours. Back in the Centre, she’s enjoyed watching the development of the new fashion end and loves the feel of it.
Now, we know Ace Cinemas are known for showing movies (which are always changing and always new!), but what else does Karen recommend purchasing? “Our popcorn and choc bombs are probably our most popular product. If you’re wanting a gift, our gift cards are perfect. Everyone loves a movie, and perhaps even a Gold Lounge treat day!”
So, the next time you hear about a new movie that catches your interest, don’t wait around for it to be uploaded to Netflix. Grab your family or friends, or do a solo date, and visit Karen and the team at Ace Cinemas. Sign up for an Ace Card and you can even get some cheaper tickets! Choose your favourite snack — or snacks — cosy up and settle in for that awesome movie atmosphere.
