Finally, a movie theater in downtown St. Louis! MX Movies will be a theater unlike any other with Chef du cinema, Josh Galliano creating amazing cuisine delivered directly to your seat.  Now, instead of the boring, overpriced candy and popcorn, you can be treated to real food and adult beverages without ever leaving your super comfortable seat. How perfect is that! Here is a a sneak peek at the MX Movie menu.

MX Movies will be opening to the public on January 18th but you can get VIP tickets to the Grand Opening on January 17th by purchasing tickets here. The VIP event will offer an opening reception with a sampling of the food, that you will be able to order from your seat in the future, prior to movie time. You can also park in the MX garage for only $1 or use the valet on Washington for $5.

Even better than ordering your tickets would be to win them! is hosting a contest to give 2 lucky winners the chance to win a pair of tickets to Les Miserables or Django Unchained. Here’s how to enter:
