Brickell finally has it’s first movie theater and in true Brickell fashion, it’s one of the most luxurious in town. CMX has opened its VIP cinema experience that features 10 screens and two bars to a 35,759-square-foot space in Brickell City Centre.
The state-of-the-art cinema features all-laser theaters and cutting-edge audio technology from Meyer Sound Laboratories, including one Dolby Atmos room, the crown jewel viewing room within the complex due to the rich audio traveling from all directions of the room.
This is the first CMX theater in the United States,. There are 306 others around the world and another location has been announced for Gulfstream Park.
The theater’s lobby closely resembles the lobby of a five-star hotel, and has a sports bar with a massive TV wall that can either be viewed as 4 different screens or one massive screen that will be used to show popular sporting events. A winding staircase leads to a lounge featuring another giant LED screen.
There are two bars and signature cocktails like “Legends of the Fall,” a twist on an Old Fashioned with Old Overholt Rye, black walnut bitters and a dollop of maple syrup. You can also order anything from a margarita to a glass of Ferrari-Carano Chardonnay. From 3 to 7 p.m. on weekdays, moviegoers can enjoy happy hour specials.
CMX has also developed an app that customers can use to check out movie selections and times, buy tickets and — more important to an immersive theater experience — quietly order food and drinks that are delivered to their seats (don’t worry — it has a movie mode so it won’t annoy your neighbor). Don’t want to bother with the app? You can also order during the movie from a white button on the arm of your seat.
And if you just want to come in, grab a drink, hang out and skip the movie? That’s totally welcome! CMX is aiming to be a great go to spot in the Brickell area for locals and tourist alike to enjoy a relaxing experience. Movie tickets are a bit pricier – popcorn is included in the price of the ticket. Tickets start at $22, but those chairs look so comfortable that we don’t think we mind.
