AMC Theaters have been rolling out a new theater concept that I am very excited about called AMC Dine-In Theaters.
As a huge fan of the Alamo Drafthouse Theaters, the new AMC Dine-In theaters are a great idea. I am well aware that it will not be anything exactly like Alamo Drafthouse; there is no way to duplicate the ambiance of those theaters. It is a great way to take your theater going experience to the next level.
One of these theaters is opening right near me in NJ. Below is a description of what the new AMC Dine-In Theaters have to offer. Do these sound like theaters you would visit?
- Premium, upscale in-theatre dining
- Reserved seating in luxury recliners
- Up to nine feet of row spacing
- Extensive menu including Cinema Suites specialties such as Bleu Cheese Chips, Blackened Salmon and Lobster Ravioli served on unique swivel tables via seat-side service
- Cinema Suites guests must be at least 21 years old
Fork & Screen®
- Casual, in-theatre dining
- Upgraded, comfortable reserved seating
- Table-top dining
- An extensive menu including Crab Rangoon Dip, Thai Coconut Chicken Tenders and Chocolate Loving Spoon Cake served via seat-side service
- Fork & Screen guests must be at least 18 years old unless accompanied by a parent or guardian(at least 21)
- A full-service bar and lounge area
- Named after a term coined by famed filmmaker Alfred Hitchcock
- Features a variety of beer, wine, cocktails and a selection of appetizers and desserts
- MacGuffins guests must be at least 18 years old; minors accompanied by a parent or guardian (at least 21) are welcome
Here is a sample pricing breakdown for one of their theaters. Pricing will likely vary by location:
- $10 for an adult movie ticket plus a $15 experience charge for Cinema Suites
- $10 for an adult ticket plus a $10 experience charge for Fork & Screen
- The $15/$10 experience charge is deducted from meal purchases in the auditorium
