Film’s Cool

Movies and cocktails-that’s the ticket

Stefanie Holmes sees a piece of the action. She also sees the tear-jerkers, chick flicks and comedies.

“I’d love to be a movie star,” says the action sports lover from Seattle, “but only if I could get a role in a romantic comedy with Paul Walker.”

Walker starred in The Fast and the Furious series. Holmes is the star behind the bar at the new Cinépolis luxury cinema in La Costa, where she helps moviegoers cool off before (and during) summer’s scorching blockbusters.

The adults-only theaters at Cinépolis lavish customers with plush reclining lounge chairs and in-seat cocktail and food service. From fresh sushi and succulent short rib to cucumber martinis and cold beer, the movie-time menu selections are as diverse as the films listed on the marquis. For traditionalists, there’s popcorn-butter, light, caramel and spicy chili. As for the drink Holmes would serve Walker: “Sex on the Beach, of course.”

Time to dim the lights...
