Best Multiplex for Coffee

Showplace ICON

Showplace ICON may be my least favorite movie theater in the city. I hate the assigned seating, the faux VIP atmosphere, the way the light from the hallway leaks onto the screen even after the door is closed. But because of promotional screenings, I probably spend more time there than at any other venue, some of it on Saturday mornings. Luckily, the theater serves amazing coffee, a full-city roast made by North Carolina beverage company S&D Coffee & Tea. If I drank it under different circumstances I probably wouldn't find it nearly as delicious, but this coffee has gotten me through countless screenings of loud, shitty movies attended by loud, shitty moviegoers after I've had a long, shitty day at the office.
