I was invited to the VIP party and special screening for the opening of the NEW Galaxy Green Valley Luxury+ Theatre.
Movie theatres never looked so good! Instead of just seeing another movie, you can now enjoy the added bonus of the luxury of the Galaxy Theatre. It becomes more of an experience.
While sitting in the ultra-comfortable seats, just touch the powered footrest and you are in a reclining position. This is similar to Business and First Class seats in airlines and those found in spas.
President of the Galaxy Theatres, Rafe Cohen announced, “We invite everyone to enjoy the Luxury+ experience and settle back with a glass of wine and the best large screen auditorium in the Las Vegas area.”
Yes, the Galaxy does serve wine and beer on tap!
This is the first Luxury+ designed theater, and the only one of its kind in Nevada, Galaxy Green Valley Luxury+ Theatre features may one-of-a-kind amenities including: cushioned seats that fully recline with powered footrests and attached snack tables that allow for absolute relaxation while watching a first-run movie; aisles that measure seven feet let reclining patrons stay in position, undisturbed while allowing enough room for other movie-goers to pass by – all for the same admission as a standard movie theater. Additionally, premium concessions including beer on tap and wine service are available for purchase in the lobby and can be enjoyed in any of the theater’s eight auditoriums.
With eight auditoriums that range in capacity from 60 to 200 guests, Galaxy Green Valley Luxury+ Theatre’s facilities will be available for a variety of events including birthdays, seminars, company meetings, private showings, anniversaries and more. Group tickets and gift certificates are also available.
Even purchasing your tickets are different at the Galaxy. You can purchase tickets in advance online at galaxytheatres.com or at the box office, and just like purchasing tickets for a concert, choose a seat before even entering the theater. Display your on-screen ticket purchase to the door person or Guest Services.
During the evening, there was a ribbon cutting with Henderson Mayor Andy A. Hafen and Henderson Councilwoman Gerri Schroder along with Galaxy Theatres executives. Councilwoman Gerri Schroder presented the President of Galaxy Theatres, Rafe Cohen, with a special proclamation from Mayor Hafen proclaiming Mar. 7-10 Galaxy Luxury+ Days. Galaxy Green Valley Luxury+ Theatre opened to the public on Mar. 8, 2013.
For show times, call 702-442-0244. Galaxy Green Valley Luxury+ Theatre is located in the Green Valley Town Center at 4500 E. Sunset Rd. in Henderson.
