Bacon + Popcorn = Love

I had such a good time on Friday night. A couple of my friends and I headed to a local movie theatre that I LOVE. After work we headed to the ICON theatre to grab some drinks and food before settling in to watch Alice in Wonderland.

Here is a look at the bar in the movie theatre.

Very cool and hard to believe it is located in a movie theatre, but it is!

The girls and I settled in to a nice seating area and the first thing I ordered was a Kettle One Cosmo!

There are many things that I like about this theatre. Here is my list:

  • Bar
  • Real food
  • Assigned seating
  • Drinks and food can be brought to your seat and consumed during movie
  • Order tickets online and pick the seats you will be sitting in
  • But the best thing about ICON is the BACON POPCORN!!!

Yes, you read that right! Bacon popcorn! So freakin’ good, I can’t even put it into words.
Bacon + Popcorn = LOVE!
I could have just eaten a barrel full of Bacon Popcorn but instead I opted to try some of the other food offered at this establishment. I had a margarita pizza that was just okay.
Chips with a caramelized onion dip.
And the skillet cookie with vanilla ice cream.

I had the best time hanging with my girlfriends at this place and I’m sure we will hit it up again. My husband and I are really excited to have theatre like this in downtown Chicago! It is right up or alley and we intend to take full advantage of everything it has to offer.
What was the last movie you saw in a theatre?
