Anyone can show us a film on an oversized screen, but babysitting and a full-spectrum bar? Well, that's a whole 'nother level of service. Whether thinking ahead to "Pirates of the Caribbean" or looking to catch the latest arthouse flick, here are our favorite perked-out Denver movie theaters for catching the latest big screen flick.

Cinema Grill: This small, locally owned venue (pictured) revels in kitsch while offering something few others do: a waitstaff. With a menu ranging form entrees to nachos and traditional movie fare -- as well as an extensive drink menu -- dinner and a movie has never been so easy.
13682 E. Alameda Ave.; 303-344-5565

Landmark Theatre Greenwood Village: No longer do you have to trade your firstborn for a soda-popcorn combo -- both are 100 percent included in the ticket price at this shiny and polished cinema. You'll also find a full bar and a cafe filled with locally made gourmet goods, including empanadas, sausages and sandwiches.
5415 Landmark Place, Greenwood Village; 303-352-1992

Harkins Northfield: Not only can you watch Will Ferrell's shenanigans on the 70-foot wide Cine Capri screen, but you get to do it without calling home to check in with the bank-breaking teenage babysitter. Harkins offers a playcenter onsite for ages 3 to 9 -- potty-trained only -- for $6 per child. Crafts, games, movies and complimentary popcorn are a few of the perks; reservations are suggested but not required.
8300 E. Northfield Blvd.; 720-374-3118

Regency at Tamarac
: Showing both indies and the latest mainstream flicks, this movie house offers a wine bar, a selection of local craft beer, Italian sodas, smoothies and an espresso bar -- you will not be thirsty. If you have time to kill before the film begins, you'll find a slew of board games in the lounge to keep you occupied.
