That new luxury movie theater we told you about back in March will open Friday in affluent South Barrington, IL. At $35 a ticket, you're treated to valet parking, waiter service, individual reclining chairs, and should you require, blankets and slippers. And no, the food isn't included.

From the Daily Herald:

The theater's menu includes a full wine list, Dom Perignon champagne at $295 a bottle, and food items like duck tacos, Wagyu beef burgers and bleu cheese potato chips.

The South Barrington Gold Class Cinemas is the first in the country. Aside from South Barrington's, the company has theaters only overseas in Asia, Australia and Europe.

Targeting upscale clientele and businesses looking to hold private screenings, Gold Class officials said they hope to open 50 theaters across the country in the next five years.
