While it is no secret that, here on the Central Florida coast, residents enjoy countless lovely, sunny days, there are still tons of fun things to do when it just happens to rain. Indoor activities in and around the New Smyrna Beach and Daytona Beach areas include visiting our museums and art galleries. There is also some outstanding antiquing to be had, souvenir shopping and, of course, a myriad of amazing dining venues; but if you haven’t yet had a chance to take in the latest action flick or rom-com you’ve been meaning to see, we also have our fair share of terrific movie theaters…
For comfortable seating and a nice selection of movies, there is the AMC CLASSIC movie theater in New Smyrna Beach at 1401 S. Dixie Freeway (386-416-7936).
If you like your movie beverages to run from Icees to ice cold Coors Light, you may want to buy a ticket at the Regal Pavilion Stadium 14 + RPX at The Pavilion – where you can get everything else you desire, from a shopping excursion to a wide array of lunch or dinner venues – in Port Orange (844-462-7342).
