Hey guys, I’m Maddie and I’m drinking a
margarita. This is the biggest most full margarita I’ve ever seen in my life.
This was 71 pesos here at Cinépolis VIP. VIP. I don’t think that’s V. VIP. Hola amigos from the movies! I’m Maddie I’m Jordan. And we are Tangerine Travels.
Today, we are doing the other side of the movie experience, the one that was so
popularly recommended to us, the VIP experience here in Mexico. We are in
Guadalajara, specifically I think in Zapopon. Although the last movie theater that we went to was an upscale movie theater
according to Google maps and according to our opinions, this one, what do you think?
It’s pretty nice so far. At least where we’re sitting right now, this is a private lounge
for just those going to VIP movies. One downside of
being in the VIP section is all the concessions are a bit more expensive
than they are out in the peasant area. We were peasants last time. We’re usually peasants. You walk
into Cinépolis and they have a separate VIP section. We have a separate
line completely than all the other ticket booths. The kiosks, I don’t think
you can buy the VIP tickets there. You have to go to this other line that’s
down a different hallway and it says Cinépolis VIP.
The tickets are 153 pesos each. And what that gets you is a whole separate
section. So where we’re sitting right now is a private area, you show them your
ticket, you go down a hallway, there’s a bunch of couches and lounge chairs. You
have a bar in here where you can get drinks, and then there are only four
movie theaters that I think are going to have reclining seats, but at least we
know that people are going to come up to your chair and serve you food. They
served us a margarita right here, we didn’t even have to move, at all. So now
we’re waiting for a few hours for our movie to start. Any other things that you
noticed differences between the U.S.? From the other Cinépolis, the regular classic version?
I mean from here in the VIP section to out there not in the VIP section, it’s a lot more tranquil in here, much quieter, faster service. So it does seem like a whole lot
nicer and at least the fact that we have private bathrooms that are really nice
and clean, and aren’t available to the rest of the mall. It makes this like
already it seems like a little bit more of a VIP deal, but you are paying for it, so
that’s the trade-off. And we will show you what the inside of the theater looks
like soon as they let us in. Now that we’re inside the theater, it is super loud
and we can’t talk about enough to explain anything to you so I’ll just tell you afterwards. So we just got out of the movie. What was
your experience like there, what’d you think of it? This wasn’t what I was expecting, considering we thought that the other movie theater was a really nice fancy high-end theater, I kind of expected
that this was going to be like the nicest movie experience I’ve ever had. and if I’m being totally honest, uh
maybe my expectations were set too high. Or maybe people built it up more than it should have been? I don’t know. I would rather go to the other theater and pay a little less money. What did you think? What about the food, maybe? What did you think about the food? We ordered a margarita and it wasn’t
very good. It tasted like they put a lot of salt it in. A lot of salt and blended it all together. The popcorn was pretty good And they brought hot sauce with it. We
got to try hot sauce on popcorn for the very first time ever, it was pretty awesome!
Yeah it was it was really good, I liked that. We ordered these ribs. It was like a combo, we wanted to at least try out the food. Generally we don’t order food at a movie theater. Even back in
the U.S. that was kind of an extraordinary treat to do but we wanted to get the
full experience and make the comparison so
we got this combo it had like french fries, ribs, and chicken strips? I have no idea what those were. When the ribs came out it was like fake bones.
With like a hotdog on it. Molded like sausage hotdog and then they put barbecue sauce
on it. So they called that ribs. I don’t know, maybe that’s normal
here in Mexico and that’s just not what we’re used to, but to call them ribs, and to serve
that, and charge what they did kind of didn’t quite match up. With the food
altogether, we got, this combo plate and that was 185 pesos, large popcorn with just
butter, so that’s kind of the classic version with 60, and then you got a large
refresco (soft drink) a Coca-Cola, and that was 50 pesos. In total, we paid about 600 pesos for
the experience. I would much prefer the 150 pesos at the
other place. All this being said, we don’t mean to offend anyone who really enjoys
going to an experience like this because it is a nice experience. But, if we’re comparing the two and being completely honest, we would just rather pay less money and
enjoy the exact same popcorn and maybe just eat right before we come or eat ice
cream afterwards like we did before. If we’re comparing this
similar like reclining seeds service at your chair in the US, I think
it’s not quite as nice in terms of the food that they’re serving and the quality of drinks. Although it is
significantly cheaper than what you would pay in the US. To buy the same stuff we
would be spending $80, for one movie. So this is way way way cheaper and you’re
still getting the reclining seats, They’re bringing all the stuff to you,
but for Mexico, of the two that we’ve done I think the winner, in our humble opinion,
goes to regular Cinépolis. Are there other VIPs theatres that you like better
than galerías here in Zapopan? Let us know down in the comments. We’re always happy to hear your
feedback, thoughts, suggestions. Did we just totally mess this all up or something?
