Congrats to SMS for being the architects for first and second best luxury theaters in San Diego!

1. Cinépolis

Cinépolis is perhaps the most O.G. and well-known of the luxury theaters in San Diego, and for good reason. Both locations in Del Mar and La Costa offer craft cocktails at the bar and top-of-the-line food items like the avocado BLT panini, which you can order from the waiter who comes right to your seat at the press of a button. The cinema holds eight screens and 543 reclining seats for kicking back and relaxing in style.

12905 El Camino Real, Del Mar or 25 Main St., Vista.

2. The Lot La Jolla

La Jolla’s newest theater and restaurant dubbed The Lot features a wide variety of food and drink options that are heavily focused on organic and sustainable options. The Lot has a very lengthy wine list as well as a nice selection of local craft beers and specialty cocktails to sip on while you enjoy your flick. The café makes for a perfect post-lunch movie spot to grab a chai latte and organic treat, as well. The sophisticated venue makes for a full-on experience in the comfy, leather recliners or while having dinner out on the patio.
