AMC Theaters Rolling Out AMC Dine-In Theaters

Rant by Jim Napier

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?

Cinema Suites® 

  • 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
