Century 16 says the fancy loungers will not set you back any additional money other than cost for the ticket and concessions.

"The lobby features a large variety of snacks in the Café Cinema concession stands including chicken tenders and wedge fries, Uno pizza, Starbucks coffee options and Dreyer’s ice cream along with the traditional movie-going snacks including popcorn and candy," Cinemark Century 16 and XD spokesperson Hope Bruens wrote in an email.

"Additional amenities include one Cinemark XD auditorium, large wall-to-wall screens, enhanced sound systems and reserved seating in all auditoriums," Bruens said.

"We are thrilled to enhance the movie-going experience at Cinemark Century 16 and XD in Anchorage with upgraded Luxury Loungers,” stated Bryan Jeffries, VP of Marketing for Cinemark. “The electric and heated recliners offer moviegoers a luxurious atmosphere to enjoy while seeing the upcoming blockbusters with friends and family.”

Bruens said upgrades to the hallways, concessions and the lobby will be the last of the remodel which should be completed soon.
