We were chosen to try-out the iPic Theater in Scottsdale, AZ. To be honest, I had researched iPic before and thought, whoa! That activity is NOT in our family of six budget. As the mom who takes the kids to the movies before noon so that we only pay $5 for matinee tickets, I was ecstatic that iPic graciously extended an invitation and we were able to experience the luxuries of iPic.

iPic provided us with a 4-admission ticket pack, so we bought pizza for the two “Littles” and dropped them off with grandma and the older boys, my husband and I headed to the theater. Upon arrival we were greeted by management and shown to our seating. We were given menus and were told; everything is on the house.
My boys looked and asked, really? Yes, we frequent our theater with the reclining seats, popcorn, snacks and drinks on-hand but this was different. New plush reclining pod-seating for two. Blankets, pillows, unlimited popcorn, a full menu + a Keto option, brought right to our seats. I asked my husband to please check on me to make sure I didn’t fall asleep during the movie, that’s how comfortable the space was. Let me tell you, we were there for ALL. OF. IT.
Seating was $27 per person, so $108 for the four of us.
Here’s what we ordered from the menu:
Fajita Quesadilla $15 (my husband had a steak quesadilla, because he thought you can’t go wrong with steak, cheese and a flour tortilla shell)
Chicken Strips $15 (I had the chicken strips, because I’m simple)
Angus Burger Sliders $17 (both my sons had the sliders, because kids eat burgers)
Truffle Fries $12 (we shared 2 orders)
Drinks $3.50 (3 drinks, I share with my husband because I don’t drink much soda and it was free re-fills)
Toffee Cookie Ice Cream Sandwich $10 x 2 (we shared 2 between the four of us)
We also had popcorn, but remember, the cost is included in the cost of your ticket.
As you can see, the pricing is like real dining. I can say the menu was nicely done. A little bit for everyone, from lobster rolls, salad bowls, flatbread pizza to Keto steak skewers. Menu prices are online to view ahead of time, which is a major plus in my book. All in all, the food was ok. It lacked overall seasoning of the meats used. My husband ate all his quesadilla, and said he’d get it again. I hate half of my chicken strips and took the rest home for lunch the following day. The boys didn’t eat all their food and didn’t care to take the rest with them. We collectively gave the food a 3 ½ out 5 rating.
So, in total, our iPic theater outing was $246.50. iPic certainly delivered what it set out to do and is worth all of what they provided, which is a luxurious movie going experience. I’d visit iPic again, for a special occasion but when the whole family is in tow, we’ll stick to the theater up the street.
