Gold Class Cinemas takes Dinner-and-Movie to new heights
FAIRVIEW, TX — This article in the Dallas Observer looks at the upscale Gold Class Cinema’s Village at Fairview and whether it’s all worth it.
Thank goodness Gold Class Cinemas doesn’t care. The luxury movie theater chain, which got its start in Australia, freely acknowledges it’s still fun to eat upscale food and be entertained at the same time. The theater isn’t afraid to pound every dopamine receptor, providing its patrons with Jeeves-like service, a lengthy list of big-name West Coast wines and robber baron dishes, including lobster rolls and Waygu burgers.
So is it good? Does it really matter? The food’s good in the same way films like Independence Day and Iron Man are good: It’s silly and extravagant and satisfying. It probably wouldn’t hold up out of context, just as a story about an alien invasion would sound preposterous coming from your neighbor. But within the confines of a 40-seat screening room, lit by Leonardo DiCaprio’s furrowed face, the dishes are rather fabulous.
