Cinemark At HHLA And Renovation Review
Have you been to HHLA shopping center recently? Over the weekend a group of us So Cal Disney Moms along with our families got the opportunity to visit Cinemark at HHLA.
Cinemark has absolutely never disappointed me with their theaters. We got to enjoy the movie in the XD auditorium, which has the largest screen in the building and has wall-to-wall state of the art projector capable of 35 trillion colors! Not only that but they have custom surround sound that makes you feel like you're in the movie! As always their service was amazing, we were able to order and secure our seats online very easily and conveniently before arriving.
Aside from their XD theaters they also have RealD 3D theaters! What is this you ask? It’s seeing movies in another dimension. Literally, it’s RealD 3D. Unfortunately, we were not able to experience this during this visit but will definitely be back to experience it with my family.
Not only did we enjoy the movie but also got to enjoy the food at Studio Eats Kitchen and Bar which is located inside the theater. I love that not only was the food yummy but it was perfectly packaged to enjoy while watching a movie, and get this, they even have a bar. Let me show you some of the food we got to enjoy!

All within walking distance from each other set in a beautiful location. Here is a list of some of the things you can find in this shopping center at the time but more are sure to come.

Of course as Disney loving moms that we are we decided to watch Pixar's Onward with our families. I don't want to spoil the movie for you if you have not watched it yet but I will say this. The movie was great and the kids loved it! It touches on great life lessons, morals, and sibling relationships. It had many funny moments that had both kids and adults laughing but definitely had very touching moments that at the end made me shed some tears.
I would highly recommend you come out with your family to HHLA to experience a movie while enjoying some food from Cinemark Studio Eats. Some restaurants like Islands and Hummus Factory have some special prices for a meal and a movie coming this Spring, https://shophhla.com/hhlahub/detail/spring-is-coming. The Shopping Center is beautiful and has lots of space for more growth and many more amazing stores/restaurants. The movie theater is large and has many great options.
