Movie Date Night Ideas, Romantic Things to Do, and Fun Activities for Couples

DATE IDEAS | CAUGHT ON FILM

Spice up your moviegoing experience with theater bean bag chairs, a glass of wine or BBQ ribs while viewing, giant screens, huge discounts, and more.

Casablanca, 9 1/2 Weeks, Couples Retreat ... spice up your moviegoing experience with theater bean bag chairs, a glass of wine or BBQ ribs while viewing, giant screens, huge discounts, and more.


Dallas offers many great movie theaters in all areas of the Metroplex, but for a little extra somethin' somethin', try a specialty theater like the Inwood Theatre with its midnight movies, full service lounge, and super comfy (and reconfigurable) LoveSac bean bag chairs, loveseats, and ottomans that come complete with pillows and blankets you can use.


See independent and new release films at the Angelika Film Center & Cafe where you can take your glass of wine into the theater with you, or Studio Movie Grill where you might choose to replace popcorn with a half rack of smoked St. Louis BBQ ribs, or Gold Class Cinema in Fairview where house-made donuts come with seasonal dipping sauces and your candy is served in a martini glass.


For action on the really big screen, see a movie in 3D at Dallas' eight-story Cinemark IMAX, pop over to the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History's domed Omni Theater (the biggest screen in the Southwest), or take short drive south to Ennis' Galaxy Drive in Theater.


You can munch on $1 hot dogs while watching movies for $1.25 before 6:00 PM at Starplex Cinemas in Mesquite and Irving; and at Plano's Cinemark 10, movies are just $1 on Tuesdays.


But if you'd rather stay in for the evening or weekend, we have plenty of rental suggestions for you in the categories of Classics (a few top favs include The Graduate, My Fair Lady, and Fast Times at Ridgemont High), Romance (we especially like An Officer and a Gentleman, The Bodyguard, and Memoirs of a Geisha), Drama (good choices include The Legend of Baggar Vance, Blow, and Catch Me If You Can), Wine Films (A Walk in the Clouds, Sideways, Bottle Shock), and Music Related Films (the winners are A Star Is Born, The Jazz Singer, Rock Star, and The Runaways).


This way you can slip into your jammies, snuggle up, and rewind if necessary in case you want to watch that scene again ... you know, the one where those lovebirds finally get back together.
