5 Local Date Ideas for Couples

A Redbook survey of readers found that 45 percent of couples "rarely" have date nights and only 18 percent said they get out around once a month.


Dinner & A Movie!

Who Does Enjoy Movies?
#CoupleGoals – See a movie he/she wants to see!

How often do you get out for a dinner and a movie? While one could argue that there are much “better” ideas for a date (like ones that involve interacting with each other and “listening” well), a good bite to eat followed by a movie your significant other has been wanting to see can go a long way.

ArcLight Beach Cities on Rosecrans has been a local favorite for many. ArcLight offers reserved seating and has an on-site bar should you want to grab a drink before your movie. For dinner options, there are several restaurants nearby such as P.F. Changs, McCormick & Schmick’s, and Houston’s.

Cinemark Playa Vista is AMAZING! Seriously, though, it’s the future of movie-going. Offering stadium seating and in-movie food service, Cinemark Playa Vista will get you hooked once you start going. The food is decent but the convenience of having food served in the movie theater is inspiring. There are several other restaurants in the Cinemark Playa Vista and XD center. Some options include Hopdoddy Burger Bar, Da Kikokiko, SOL Mexican Cocina, 800 Degrees Neapolitan Pizzeria, and Hal’s Bar & Grill.
