The VIP Room Cinemark Theaters: The Palace 500 Nichols Road · 816-756-5670 after 3 p.m.
If you're going to spend $8 to see a movie in an impersonal stadium theater, why not pay $15 and really get your money's worth? That's how much it costs to catch a first-run flick at the Palace's VIP Room. But the perks! Forget the Coke and Mountain Dew, man. Have a glass of wine or a cocktail or an ice-cold beer with your movie. The theater is actually a posh screening room, seating fewer than forty people on sumptuous leather chairs, and there's not a bad seat in the house. The VIP Room offers a dinner menu as well, and the servers are polite and unobtrusive. Cheers!
