There is nothing more I love than going to the movies. Anytime I walk into the lobby of a theatre, I hear that iconic little jingle of "Let's all go to the lobby" play as I pick up my popcorn and surrender to some magical movie world for the next two to three hours.

Grand Rapids movie buffs and casual fans alike have a reason to be excited because starting this weekend, one of the world's premier movie going experiences is coming to West Michigan for the first time.

Phoenix Theatres opened their doors to the Grand Rapids community on Thursday, April 14th and they're the first theatre in West Michigan to offer the Dolby Atmos movie experience.

If you're not familiar with Dolby Atmos, according to their website it's "a leap forward from surround sound, Dolby Atmos allows you to experience multi-dimensional sound with incredible clarity that brings you deeper into the story. With Dolby Atmos, sound can be precisely placed anywhere in the cinema, even overhead, creating an immersive soundscape that sounds more like real life."

And good sound isn't the only thing you'll find inside of Phoenix Theatres, you'll also find some of the most comfortable seats in Grand Rapids, because every seat in the house is not only a luxury recliner, they're also heated too!

Their ticket prices are the least confusing in West Michigan, as well. They offer flat rate ticket prices at just $10, so no matter the day or time you're arriving you know exactly what you'll be paying before you walk into the doors.

And you can't see one of the latest movies without stopping by the concession stand. Not only do they have all of your favorite candies, popcorn, and drinks, they also have beer, wine and even CBD drinks for those of age.

The owners of Phoenix Theatres have really helped this theatre space rise from the ashes, with a beautiful lounge and updated fixtures throughout, they offer a modern movie going experience with the authentic classic movie theatre aesthetic you know and love.
