Empire Premiere: Cinema, Lazyboy and Premium Sushi

I recently had the chance to get a sneak preview of the menu and too be honest I was super impressed that I just had to go back there for another peek of the new luxury way of watching a movie.

Empire Premiere Sodeco is an experience from the moment you enter the venue until the moment you leave. Think of it as complete escapism with a world of choices:  choose how to buy your ticket, pick a specific seat, indulge over sushi and drinks and then kick back and enjoy the show!

Downstairs, at the bar, the Sushi Bar staff is trained to serve you up to 25 pieces in 10 minutes only. Enough to have a complete dinner, in the restaurant or even inside while watching the movie.

At the main bar, sit and relax and indulge in some premium sushi:

  • Food safety comes first. The menu is studied with care
  • Seven high tables seating three persons each
  • High stools to mingle before the movie
  • A long sofa follows the wall
  • Couple of relaxing chairs placed around square tables in a lounge ambiance
  • Choose any drink imaginable and it will be served with a smile
