You already know Somerville’s Assembly Row as a great place to get errands done. Having Sports Authority and HomeGoods within a short drive is a nice convenience. But Assembly Row just put itself on the map of great date destinations, and it isn’t because of the new LEGOLAND.

AMC has opened a state-of-the-art cinema in Assembly Row that has movie-goers agog. Picture this: You purchase tickets online in advance and choose your seats, enjoy a delicious dinner at nearby Legal on the Mystic, then bypass the long ticket lines in favor of grabbing a drink from the theater’s in-house bar. (Yes, you can take your drink inside and sip while you watch.)

Then sink into your plush pleather seats — some of which actually recline — and enjoy the show. Your only complaint may be that the seating is so generously spaced you’ll have to reach way across the arm rests to hold hands with your date.

What else can we tell you? Free parking, check. T-accessible, check. A J.P. Licks nearby to satisfy your sweet tooth, check, check. Oh, and did we mention they have an IMAX screen?

So what are you waiting for? Peruse the movie listings and get ready to be AMC-amazed.
