New I-Pic Facility Open at Bayshore
GLENDALE - The new I-Pic facility opened Friday at Bayshore Town Center.
I-Pic is a new luxury entertainment complex that features a restaurant, movie theater, bowling alley and bar all in the same place.
TODAY’S TMJ4’s Tom Murray got a preview of I-Pic last week. They've got a theater, they've got a restaurant, but I-Pic is much more than your typical dinner and a movie.
The restaurant is kind of fancy. The menu features things like crispy duck and chicken pot pie. There's also some Wisconsin favorites like lake superior whitefish and Usingers sausage.
The movie theater is called a screening room. The arm rest comes up and creates a giant love seat. It feels like a first class airline seat. There's a little table for your dessert, possibly a drink. On the walls, there's oil paintings. Yup, they are real.
Florida based entertainment developer Hamid Hashemi is the brains behind I-Pic
TODAY’S TMJ4’s Tom Murray: “Is this a place for kids?”
“Yes, absolutely. This facility is for kids up until 6:00. You can bowl, go to the movies. After 6:00, kids have to be accompanied by adults for the movies. After 9:00, no kids are allowed," Hashemi said.
After the movie, how about a little bowling? It almost feels like a dance club with the video screen that spans all the lanes. Maybe a little distracting as you try to bowl a strike.
Tom Murray: “So give me an idea. If I come here with my girlfriend for dinner and a movie, how much am I going to spend?”
“You can spend anywhere from $45 to $60,” Hashemi said.
That's $45 to $60 per person. A movie ticket alone is $15, but that includes valet parking and all-you-can-eat popcorn.
The bar, the bowling alley and the movie theater are open until 2:00 a.m. Friday and Saturday nights.
