Iron Horse Adds a Nice Touch to Downtown Scranton

A good trip to the movies is about what you see and the experience around you.  The new Iron Horse Movie Bistro in Scranton provides a great experience and a nice upgrade for downtown. We’ve lived in the area for less than a year but we’ve observed a steady stream of new businesses opening.  An upscale movie theater with some personality is a welcome addition and it’s located near some pretty great restaurants.  For the ultimate in loafish class, you can do the whole dinner & a movie thing in the theater with the Iron Horse’s PTX Auditorium.   If you can manage to show up at least 30 min early, they’ll serve you in your pre-reserved seats.  All theater types feature electric-powered reclining seats w/cup holders and a tray table.  It’s a great, all-around experience that is distinctly better than the typical strip mall theater.  The city or property owner should touch up the paint in the Electric City parking garage to make it a little less like the set from an episode of Law & Order: SVU.


We saw Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 this weekend and that probably helped with the whole experience. The movie has great action and a hefty dose of relationship driven tension, the signature ingredient for a great comic book movie.  Dave Bautista once again out-performs the rest of the cast in a no longer surprising and hilarious way.  It’s worth the trip to see it in a theater and if you’re in #NEPA, do it at the Iron Horse.

MPH Podcast EP #6 – Hotel, Motel, Holiday Inn

Winter continues to drag on in the northeast, which has Liz & I dreaming of warmer weather and vacation destinations.  After a little plant talk (yeah…) we discuss the common vacations we like to take and what plans may lay ahead for the year to come.  We recall some of our recent adventures and the places we’ve been around the country in the past few years.
