LA's New Movie/Dining Theater Destination

Gold Class Cinemas, the distinctive movie theatre company that has reinvented the movie-going experience with its iconic orange chairs and by introducing the concept of going to "dinner and a movie" under the same roof, today announced the upcoming holiday season opening of its newest location in Pasadena, Calif. at One Colorado located at 24 East Union Street, Pasadena, CA 91103.

Gold Class Cinemas provides the ultimate escape for movie-lovers by offering great food, comfortable one-of-a-kind seats, first run films, full bar and signature ninja-like servers. At Gold Class Cinemas guests enjoy wine, full bar, a meal and a movie together. There is no more need to rush through lunch or dinner just to get to a movie on time. Guests can check in 30 minutes before the movie, place their order and the server will take them to their reserved seat where their food will be delivered. Add in a pillow, blanket and personal service throughout the movie, and that is what it means to Go Gold Class.
The experience at Gold Class Cinemas is multi-sensory. For James Bond Quantum of Solace, Gold Class Cinemas offered advanced ticket purchasers a free martini 'shaken not stirred.' During the recent hit film Julie & Julia, a special menu of Julia Child's recipes was featured and before specific showings of the film, Gold Class chef's offered cooking demonstrations showcasing Child's famed culinary creations.

Since its U.S. launch in October 2008, Gold Class Cinemas has opened two locations (South Barrington, Ill. and Redmond, Wash.) and will have a third location opening in the Chicagoland area on October 30, 2009 in Bolingbrook, Ill. "We are ecstatic about bringing Gold Class Cinemas to Southern California," explains Kirk Senior, CEO, Gold Class Cinemas. "There is always something special happening at our theatres. Besides the comfort and service, what makes Gold Class Cinemas so unique is that we combine the food experience with what you are seeing on the screen. Once a guest discovers everything that is offered, they realize Gold Class Cinemas are both a destination and an experience."
In conjunction with its new opening, Gold Class Cinemas is running a "Go Gold Class" Dinner And A Movie Giveaway promotion for the chance to win "Dinner And A Movie" for a year at the new location--customers can simply go to and register to become a member. They will then be automatically entered to win a year of great movies and dining!
"We couldn't be more excited about the arrival of Gold Class Cinemas to One Colorado," notes David Friedman on behalf of the owner of One Colorado. "A movie theatre is always a gathering place and hub of activity, but with Gold Class Cinemas we will be a destination for movie-lovers from all over Los Angeles. I have no doubt that people will make the trip from outside of Pasadena to see a movie here."
Gold Class Cinemas feature online ticket purchasing, reserved seats, private and corporate event buy-outs and special onsite promotions.
