Living Room® Theaters Indianapolis is hosting an open house happening Friday, June 25 to Sunday, June 27 from 11:30 a.m. – 9:30 p.m. each day. They’re located at: 745 E 9th St, Suite 810, in the Bottleworks District.

The public is invited to experience first-hand, the theater’s state-of-the art auditoriums, Art Deco lobby with wall-to-wall murals and bar and restaurant with modern cuisine, unique cocktails, wine and craft beers.

Open house events are free and open to the public and include an exhibition of the technology and comfort featured in the auditoriums, free concessions and prizes with menu items and drinks available for purchase.

Living Room® Theaters opened at the end of last year, at the height of the Covid-19 pandemic, limiting opportunities for a grand opening celebration.

“When we opened in December, we were in the dark months of the pandemic, making a proper grand opening impossible.” Steve Herring, Living Room® CEO says. “We’re excited and proud for guests to see our uniquely Indy movie experience.”

Living Room® Theaters is a state-of-the-art venue featuring 8 screens with 4K digital projection capabilities, ultra-comfortable recliner and rocker seating and pleasing ambient lighting schemes.

The theater offers in-theater dining from an on-site upscale restaurant with a full bar of local craft beers, vivacious wines and creative cocktails. “Living Room Theaters has reinvented the way films are experienced and distributed by creating a less conventional and more unique experience – from the film selections to the re-imagined lobby ambiance, to the concessions, seating, services and more,” says Steve Herring.

Living Room exhibits a mix of the best independent cinema, critically-acclaimed film and Hollywood hits that both entertain an challenge audiences.

Occupying two floors and over 27,000 sq. feet of a new building, Living Room’s lobby features an art-deco design concept with wall-to-wall murals by local artists.

A large lobby area features loose seating that transitions into the lounge where four custom-built banquettes with separated seating bookends the bar area. A full-size kitchen serves seasonal and regional cuisine to patrons in the lounge and offers in-theater service.

The main bar offers a full range of beer, wine, liquor and cocktails. Each of the 8 auditoriums features cutting-edge sound and projection with plush recliner and rocker seats. The recliners have floor-attached dining tables that extend and push away from patrons. A dazzling wall and ceiling lighting system offers an array of individually programmed lighting schemes. Sloped ceilings which rake away from the screen create the feel that the screen is pulling towards the seats.

Living Room® Theaters is open 7 days a week. Theater prices are $13.75 for general admission and $9.75 for matinees, including tax. Parking is available in the parking structure accessible from Mass Ave and surface lots adjacent to the theater with 3 hour validation provided with ticket purchase.
