Ipic’s Full Night Out
According to Chief Executive Officer and President, Hamid Hashemi, the main idea behind Ipic theaters is 21st people have little true leisure time amidst their hectic daily schedules. For this reason, Hamid felt the need to make relaxation time to be as special as possible – and thus the Ipic concept was born.
An Ipic theater has it all under one roof so that moviegoers can enjoy a full night of entertainment without having to Uber from place to place. This means combining the best of a world-class selection of movies with ultra-comfortable seats, state-of-the-art screen and sound systems, world-class facilities, and mouth-watering food and drinks.
Think of it as your own dream luxurious home theater at a tiny fraction of the cost, albeit for a few hours at a time. Plus you won’t have to do any cleaning! That alone is worth the cost of the slightly higher priced tickets.
Hamid further stated he wants moviegoers to truly look forward to the movie viewing experience, perhaps even by dressing up. Back in the day, after all, men and women dressed up to go the movies because it was considered as an opportunity for socialization and to visit another world outside our own.
In the newest Houston theater, for example, you will enjoy The Tuck Room, a gastro-lounge that offers a food and craft cocktail menu with a drink selection crafted by mixologists. You can choose from pizzas, salads, and sandwiches as well as kabobs, oysters, and sushi. You can even check out The Tuck Room without buying a movie ticket!
In comparison with other movie chains, Ipic cinemas are certainly on the high end. But when a theater is surrounded by several upscale shops, such as Dior, Hermes, and Carter, you can look forward to the most lavish movie viewing experience.
In many Ipic theaters, you will also enjoy the Ipic Pod, a new deluxe seating arrangement. The Ipic Pod comes with a pair of reclining leather seats as well as a plush throw blanket and a small pillow. Talk about feeling at home in the theater!
Video and audio equipment used at Ipic are among the best in the industry. The theaters’ screens are equipped with 4K digital projection technology and Dolby 7.1 surround sound system. You can enjoy a wide range of films from the classics to the latest Hollywood blockbusters.
If you’re in charge of coming up with a memorable event for a group of 10 or more, you should place Ipic near the top of the list. They offer a range of pre-set and custom packages for all their individual locations.
Event which have previously been successfully hosted at an Ipic theater include:
- Corporate entertainment events
- PowerPoint presentations
- Birthday parties
- Sporting events
- Holiday parties
- Video Game parties

A few of the most popular ones include:
- Ipic New York City – 11 Fulton Street
- Ipic Westwood – 10840 Wilshire Boulevard
- Ipic Fort Lee – 2023 Hudson Street
- Ipic Redmond – Redmond Town Center, 16541 NE 74th Street
- Ipic Pasadena – 42 Miller Alley
