We went to the movies today – by itself that’s a BIG treat since there are no cinemas where we live on the VA eastern shore. Only this experience was unique in more ways than one.Why? Because we watched the movie in a leather limousine seat without being in an actual car and it was indoors.
Where? At Chunky’s Cinema Pub, a privately-owned company with 3 locations in New England: Nashua and Pelham, NH and Haverhill, MA. This theatre/pub business is so “private” that there wasn’t a lot of information about it online. (The one shown below is where we went. It was open despite parking lot reconstruction.)
Seeing a movie at Chunky’s was a unique concept. You watch the movie seated in a stand-alone driver or passenger seat reportedly from a Lincoln Continental Town Car without a seat belt or arm rests. And, while there’s no car, this seat is on wheels.
The limo seats are set up in rows with a table in between. You can pick up a menu and order food from a full menu which incudes burgers, sandwiches, salads, and pub selections like french fries, nachos, chicken fingers, cheese pizza. And, of course, popcorn and candy are available. There’s also a bar for those who want something other than soda.Your food order is delivered to your table.
There was no one else in the theatre for the Money Ball matinee we attended – not even the chauffeur.
This evening was special because we got to meet fellow blogger, Elaine (Artic View) and her husband, Ray. Like Grenville and myself, they are also on a month-long road trip which started from Alaska. We’re glad they stopped in Nashua, NH, on their way to Freeport, ME.
