CMX Cinemas opened two high-end cinema experience and separate theatres inside the Old Orchard Westfield. CMX CineBistro catered to guests 21 years old and up with crafted gourmet menu brought directly to your seats and a full-service bar, and CMX Market Cinema with a Grab-and-go gourmet food experience, a full-service bar, and open to all ages. Both theatres are offering a VIP Experience unlike any other theatres in the Chicagoland area. I was very excited to see it!
As soon as we walked in the CMX Market Cinema, it felt like we entered into a modern boutique hotel lobby. Even my children armed with their smartphones quickly started snapping pics. You should’ve seen my kids when they saw the gourmet menu choices they have that we can bring inside the theatre while watching the movie. I ordered a Pomodorini Pizza and Spinach with Strawberry Salad, and my little girl had a Hot Turkey Salad and paired it with a Strawberry Shake. My teen son couldn’t stop talking about the Short Rib Poutine, and my other boy enjoyed his Market Angus Cheeseburger washed down with a Banana-Peanut Butter Shake.
So now I go back to my initial question. Why would someone who lives by downtown Chicago bother driving all the way to Skokie to see a movie? Well, why wouldn’t I?! I get free parking, excellent dining experience, comfortable luxury, and the family is extremely happy to be watching a movie together — a great experience that we will make sure to redo again!
But wait up, because CMX Cinemas is also coming to the Wrigleyville area in 2019!

The @cmxcinemas is not your usual theatre! @westfieldoldorchard now have two separate #CMXcinemas that offer different services, but both are upscale and luxurious that gives a ”VIP Experience” to all their guests! You should see their gourmet food and cocktail menus, too! My family had a chance to check it out this past weekend and I’m excited to share that on Chicagonista.com. #Chicagonista #Chicago #Skokie
