"We are excited and proud to bring the revolutionary concept of iPic Theaters to a thriving city like Houston," says President and CEO of iPic Entertainment Hamid Hashemi. "iPic prides itself in transforming the movie-going experience into the ultimate night-out. From the moment of arrival, guests are invited into a surprising, sensory environment. Moviegoers escape to where iconic design and contemporary luxury set the stage for an exclusive lifestyle destination - one that provides style, comfort, relaxation and remarkable technology," he adds. 

The new iPic Theaters in River Oaks District will enable guests to enjoy their movie in ultimate comfort and style with the option of Premium or Premium Plus seating and iPic's gourmet chef-driven grab and go and in-theater dining concept, Tanzy Express. Premium seat ticketholders can relax in large, plush leather seats and may purchase their food and beverage direct from Tanzy Express and carry into the theater to enjoy at their seat. Premium-Plus seating features reclining, oversized leather chairs, pillows and blankets, and individual service-call buttons that summon ninja-like servers to deliver signature dishes or hand-crafted cocktails from Tanzy Express.

The River Oaks District location will feature "SALT," iPic Theaters' exclusive bar and lounge, with a unique blend of style and substance creating an intimate setting for crafted cocktails made with market-fresh, seasonal ingredients by Master Mixologist/Advanced Sommelier for iPic Entertainment, in addition to small plate and late night dining selections created by iPic Entertainment's Corporate Chef, Andre Lane.

iPic Theaters in River Oaks District is slated to open in 2014. The theater will feature eight auditoriums with seating between 50 to 90 people in an intimate setting.  All auditoriums will be equipped with 4K digital cinema technology.  All seats can be reserved ahead of time on iPic's proprietary reservation system on ipic.com or moviegoers can simply download the iPic App to their iPhones or Android for a hassle-free, one-step transaction process.  A no-charge exclusive membership program offers iPic guests discount pricing, priority notification of tickets available for sale to blockbuster movies, access to exclusive movie showings, free upgrades to Premium Plus seats and the ability to earn points towards iPic Member Reward programs.
