AMC Theatres and Danny Meyer Create Dining at the Movies

Union Square Hospitality Group partners with AMC to bring viewers the newest phase in movie theater dining experience: Red Kitchen

Order some food at Red Kitchen and then enjoy your movie in a reclined seat!

If buttered popcorn just won’t cut it, you may want to check out AMC Theatre’s new Red Kitchen, part of the movie theater giant’s Dine-In Theaters program that brings casual dining to the movies, and features a partnership with Danny Meyer’s Union Square Hospitality Group.

“AMC Red Kitchen is a fast-casual option that emphasizes freshness, speed and convenience,” Ryan Noonan, a representative with AMC told The Daily Meal. “When we partnered with Union Square, we wanted the excellence of our menu to match the incredible comfort and experience guests get sitting in the plush recliners during the movie.”

Not only do the seats recline at the Dine-In Theaters, but guests can also grab a drink from their new MacGuffins Bar & Lounge. Red Kitchen’s first location is in Aurora, Colo., but AMC plans on expanding to other theaters. Expect casual food like the chicken and artichoke panini, a North Carolina-style pulled pork wrap, and even a hot dog reminiscent of the famous Shake Shack dog.

Sure, I want to pay $20 for a panini (AMC has always been one of the most expensive chains) while listening to other people eat and young people play with their phones. No wait, I want to eat home grilled steak in front of my 60 inch TV while watching a Blu Ray that only cost me a $1.50 out of the Redbox.
