State-of-the-art theater opens in lower Hudson Valley


If you want to enjoy your favorite movie in a comfy leather chair, while munching on pizza and sipping on a cold beer, you’ll soon be in luck. And we’re not talking about your own living room. If you miss going out for a real cinema experience and want to watch the latest movie which is not yet available for home streaming, then this might be the place for you. A new movie theater chain is planning to open its very first venue in New York, and it’s coming here to the Hudson Valley.

LoHud reports that LOOK Dine-In Cinemas will open a location at Dobbs Ferry on Rivertowns Square. Originally, the theater was supposed to open in December 2021, but LoHud says the new date is February 10. The company is based in Dallas, Texas, and features eight auditoriums, surround sound technology, as well as an extensive menu, craft cocktails, wine, and beer. Imagine all of this delivered straight to your seat. This will provide a unique experience for the region, as LOOK only has seven locations nationwide; in Texas, California, Florida and Arizona.

You’ll soon be able to drink cocktails and other alcoholic beverages, while other theaters across the state have to wait to apply for licenses. Recently, the New York State Liquor Authority announced that beer, cider and wine can be served in movie theaters in New York. Some lawmakers have long believed that the sale of alcohol could help boost business and theater attendance.

A number of theaters across the country have already done so, including theaters in New York that offered table service. Other theaters were only allowed to serve alcohol if the patron drank it at a lobby cafe, or if the venue also served as a functioning restaurant (places like Alamo Drafthouse or LOOK Dine-In). Now you can actually buy the booze at a concession stand with your popcorn and then take it to the theater. It could change a lot of things. The changes take effect immediately, though as mentioned, it may take a little while for theaters to get their licenses.
