Dinner and a Movie at Muvico in Spotsylvania Towne Centre

After 30 years with my husband (and 5 kids later), date nights are a rarity.  However, I was excited by the prospect of a change of venue when my husband suggested we go see Red and I found out it was playing at Muvico.  My 20 year old had frequented the place often this summer, sometimes taking her younger siblings for pizza and a movie.  She spoke of the beautiful decor and enormous screens but for someone who doesn’t get out much, it was lost on me.

Boy, what an impression it made!  The idea of getting dinner and a movie in the same location was very appealing but even more so was the price! Pizza for 2, non-alcoholic beverages and 2 movie tickets to the movie of your choice were only $24.95.  We stepped it up a notch and had their more expensive meal.  For $39.95 you could get an appetizer to share, two salads, two entrees, and beverages….PLUS 2 tickets to the movie of your choice.  The meal was small but tasty. I had the spicy tuna roll and ceasar salad (TINY) and my husband had the cheeseburger sliders.  Now, yes, he could have gotten 2 double cheeseburgers at McDonald’s and been more satisfied by the portion size, but we were at the movies….having dinner!  Our calamari appetizer came out at the end of our meal at which time we had to leave for the movie and didn’t have much appetite for an appetizer after the meal. 

The service was a bit slow considering we went on Wednesday evening and the place was anything but busy.  We were told to sit where we wanted and were waited on about 15 minutes later by a very apologetic and friendly waiter/bartender.  The ambience was really quite nice.  We’re not much for crowds and this particular evening proved to give us the experience we desired. Plasma screen TV’s were everywhere and I could see how this place would be a huge hit on Sundays during the football season.  Beer and pizza specials appeared to be touchdown winners!

The theatre experience was magnificent.  The screen was like watching the largest, clearest, plasma screen TV I’ve ever seen.  it was perfection!  The seats reclined comfortably and there was plenty of leg room – even for my husband who stands 6’3″.  Aside from the picture, the audio quality was exceptional as every shot fired and explosion seemed to be coming from a different direction! We had the option of sitting in the over-21, balcony seating section where we could have had alcoholic beverages, leather seating, and access to their billiards tables.  However, one drink and I would have slept through half the movie so that was not an option!

I love this area of Stafford/Fredericksburg primarily because it has history, rural beauty, and an Old Town charm that is rarely found.  However, it also has some great entertainment, dining and shopping.  Muvico and Splitsville at the Spotsylvania Towne Center had all of these!

About Quantico Homes

Working primarily as a referral agent, my main motivation is to be able to provide you the highest possible level of service as you look to buy or sell your home in the Northern Virginia Real Estate market. You should be so impressed with your service that you will feel compelled to refer me to your family, friends and colleagues. Our time together is always well spent meeting your specific needs because my time and effort is not spent looking endlessly to generate more business. As an Accredited Buyer's Agent, the buyer's criteria becomes paramount during the homebuying process. Your needs will never be compromised because Dual Agency is not something I participate in. This is a distinguishing characteristic from many in the industry and I stand firm in the belief that no client in a transaction (whether a buyer or a seller) should be without 100% representation. You deserve all the loyalty and attention from an agent who will always have only your best interests in mind. Keeping in mind that Northern Virginia is a highly transient area, I am always privvy to sales reports and market analysis of all the surrounding counties from Alexandria/Arlington to as far south as Orange County and from east on the Potomac River to the Shenandoah and West Virginia border (and all points in between!). Between the military, corporate, and government relocations, having an agent working to provide you with the latest statistical information and market trends is imperative to a successful sale or purchase. Also, as an e-Pro, finding you homes and communicating that to you becomes increasingly efficient, as does marketing properties for sale. Using exceptional photography for virtual tours, staging all listings, and incorporating "out of the box" methods to generate the largest number of buyer leads while Marketing Your Property For Sale, I can save you time, money and frustration.
