Get the most out of your movie ticket with the cinema’s untraditional menu


White House Down, The Lone Ranger, Independence Day, R.I.P.D., Pacific Rim, Xerxes, and 2Guns are some of the big budget films expected to lead the blockbuster movie season this summer. But in the age of indulgence, it's all about location, location, location. And with ticket prices climbing higher and higher, most adult movie-goers are in search of a more premium experience... one that combines the elements of luxury and convenience to maximize enjoyment. Enter the CinéBistro experience.

At CinéBistro, a movie theater company that offers in-theater dining and drinking, there is reserved seating in high-back leather chairs, complimentary valet parking on Fridays and Saturdays, and a chef-driven menu and premium cocktails that make the $13.50 ticket to the movies worth the trip.

The menu options at Atlanta's seven-screen house include beef rib sliders with a Cherry Coke BBQ sauce, crispy yellowfin tuna tacos, fig and Brie flatbread, and CinéBistro Steakhouse Chips (think house-fried crisp potato chips with short rib, caramelized onions, bacon, and blue cheese crumble fondue). And those are just the starters! A more substantive selection of main dishes ranges from Southern staples like buttermilk fried chicken to a New York strip steak.

Because of all the theater's amenities, it's nearly impossible to walk in to a random weekend show without a reservation. But then again, advanced seat selection is part of the premium experience.
