Sometimes, you just need to chill out and treat yourself to dinner and a movie. That’s exactly what a coworker and I did one day after work. However, this trip to the theater was nothing like we had experienced before.
We chose to see Battle of the Sexes featuring Emma Stone and Steve Carell at the Liberty Center Cinebistro. It was instructed to get there early, so we did. After getting our tickets, we were told we could wait at the bar. Well, don’t mind if I do and order a beer while we’re here! The bar offered a nice selection of wine, cocktails and even some local craft beer.
Once the theater doors opened, we headed to our seats. When we purchased our tickets, we were able to choose the exact seats we wanted allowing us to bypass that whole awkward ‘where should we sit?” moment in the aisle way.
Shortly after, we were greeted with menus and given a thorough explanation of how dinner would work. We were really treating ourselves, so we splurged and ordered quite a bit including a bottle of wine. We both ordered the New York Strip which came with Three Cheese Mac & Cheese, Roasted Shallots, and Truffled Frites. I WAS IN HEAVEN. The steak was perfect on it’s own but the truffle really added to the flavor. While we opted for the pricier dish, the menu featured small plates, sandwiches and even pasta. For dessert, we split the Butterscotch Bourbon Crème Brûlée and it was to die for.
Once our meals were finished, we took advantage of the reclining seats and made ourselves extra comfy for the remainder of the movie. The seats were roomy and allowed for extra leg space. Plus, every seat had little tables for your food and popcorn and drink holders by the arm rests.
Our experience at Cinebistro may have changed the way I expect to see movies. No man will ever be able to take me to dinner then a movie. Now they’ll have to take me to dinner AND a movie. Whether it’s a night to relax, date night or even girls night, Cinebistro is a deliciously fun movie experience.
