Best Cinema Presentation - Showplace Icon - 2013 Best of MN

  • May 19, 2013 - 9:31 AM

In the sea of multiplexes now offering digital projection, the standout is the Showplace Icon in St. Louis Park, a glossy, grandly scaled boutique multi-screen designed to make you feel like a celebrity. Upscale without feeling snooty, it offers a grown-up ambience, premier amenities and a chic cafe. The moviegoing experience is flawless, with a stomach-rattling sound system and high-definition screen images sharp enough to cut your finger. The screening rooms are airy, and the assigned seating sinfully cushy. Visit the cafe to talk about the movie afterward or to get a drink to take into the VIP viewing areas. There are previews of coming attractions, but never tacky advertising, and the features start on time. W. 16th St. and Park Pl. Blvd., St. Louis Park; 612-568-0375,
