Movie_reelsNEWS!  Now Open:  New Movie Theater

New Cinema Brings Luxury to Coconut Creek:  Silverspot- To keep the audience focused on the movie, food will not be served inside the auditorium; However, guests can take in selections from the snack counter, which includes pizza, chicken fingers and the now-ubiquitous sliders. There will be no intrusions from the outside world, and even the packaging of the products, the interior design of each auditorium and the seats themselves are colored entirely black, wrapping up attendees in a comfy cinematic cocoon. Located in the Promenade, the burgeoning outdoor shopping, dining and banking center of Coconut Creek, the 11-screen Silverspot advertises itself as a boutique theater, but it does match the upscale standards of iPic in other ways. There is no box office, so guests are encouraged to purchase tickets online or at five electronic kiosks near the entrance, where they’ll buy assigned seats. The interior design of the lobby is minimalist-chic. A bar dispensing bottled beer, wines and cocktails greets you upon entry, and, as Emerman points out, “your wine bottle will fit in the cupholders” of the seats. And speaking of those seats: These lumbar-supported, hand-stitched pockets of leather heaven are justifiably one of Silverspot’s proudest calling cards. Every seat is like a first-class plane-Silverspot  will screen independent and art-house fare in addition to top-grossing Hollywood titles. Concerts, ballets and operas will be simulcast, and owners are looking into streaming sporting events as well.  Tickets will cost $14.50 for adults and $9.75 for children, with discounts for seniors and matinees, and with small additional fees for 3D movies. The theater will open to the public today at 4443 Lyons Road, Coconut Creek. For information and show times, visit silverspot.net.

Eat Scene-W Palm-Tony Solo-eatscene

Eat-Scene and Wine Scene in West Palm Beach

Eat-Scene is a combination gourmet market / restaurant area at the corner of Quadrille Boulevard and Fern Street. The brainchild of long-time Florida resident, Tony Solo, Eat-Scene is described as being loosely based on such similar venues as New York’s Eataly and Seattle’s Pike’s Market. There will be 20 or so different independently owned businesses under the Eat-Scene roof, from purveyors of produce, meat and seafood to gourmet spices, chocolates and baked good, along with four different “micro eateries,” a deli and an outdoor beer garden.The idea, according to Eat-Scene’s website, is to create a “market culture for wine and food enthusiasts” and a “social venue that appeals to all your senses.” Located at: 501 Fern St, West Palm Beach, FL 33401-Info; 561-275-1550 or www.eatscene.com

NEWS:  A UNIQUE AND MEANINGFUL GIFT: “ADOPT A WILD DOLPHIN”Dolphin+Girl-viewerCAUR9JN5

I JUST “ADOPTED” a wild dolphin–His name is “Wonder”- I received a “Certificate of Adoption”, a brief life history and color photograph of my dolphin–and a hard copy of the book “An Ocean of Inspiration”–The John Olguin Story.  Each dolphin has its own Facebook page (and there are 300 yet  to be adopted.) All this for only $30 +  $5 for shipping in the U.S.  ( Or, perhaps, just get a copy of this wonderful book for $15 +  $3 for shipping in the U.S. ) This makes a gift that truly supports a great cause. IMG_0004(Note: You will be helping a dolphin scientist with further  exploration, observation and research to help preserve these special mammals. Support the Palm Beach Dolphin Project- For info:   harzen@taras.org or  561-762-6473 Click here to watch this video of a dolphin show-   CLICK HERE  Note By Scientist, Explorer, Author, Dolphin Researcher-Dr. Stefan Harzan: If you have an opportunity to swim with dolphins…why not do it in the open ocean? There, the dolphins may stay close or have the freedom to swim away. It is so much better, because we meet them on their terms.

Contact to adopt your own dolphin: Harzen @Taras.org or 561-762-6473
