Big movie theatre chains showing big blockbuster movies are an American way of life. For many couples and families, a great opening to the weekend is heading towards the local movie theatre and catching a good flick with a nice helping of buttered popcorn and a larger than life drink.
Then there are some, myself included, that require a theatre to be more than just a screen and chairs. It is, afterall, a home where the great Silver Screen lives; where children laugh, lovers cry, and heroes are inspired. Under the perfect setting, a theatre can transpire to accommodate luxury and comfort. For the best cinematic experience, look no further than the Moviehouse & Eatery found in Flower Mound,Texas.
A bang for your buck
While admission to the Moviehouse & Eatery does come with a 12 USD tag, your hard earned money is well invested. Beyond the entry doors awaits a modern full service bar and lounge that balances the elegance of chic dining under the cool atmosphere of nightlife romanticism. Arrive an hour or two early with your date, spouse, or friends and kick back at the lounge with a drink.
Sit like a boss
There are some theatres where you’ll have to arrive early and endure a blank screen or the ad ridden pre-show to reserve your seats, but the Moviehouse and Eatery allows you to reserve your seat upon payment through your laptop or phone. You can plan your trip accordingly without having to rush through lights as the almost-too-comfy-to-sit leather recliners are your designated seats. You’ll also be able to sit through your movie comfortably and receive seat side service from the friendliest of servers, all without a single moan or groan from young children as they are not allowed in R rated movies after 6 p.m.
Menu made for the stars
Of course, a designer bar and premier seating aren’t the only defining characteristics of the Moviehouse & Eatery. To separate themselves from the pack, the Moviehouse & Eatery competes with the AMC Dine In, another full service theater that is no more than 5 miles away, by offering a top class menu ranging from burgers and pizza to risotto and cavatappi.
With so many options, it may seem tough to make a decision. I suggest starting with the Summer Fruit Plate, which is a delightful combination of yogurt and chili infused mango topped with pumpkin seeds and watermelon and basil glazed with balsamic, and then finish it off with a hearty ATX Tommy, a pretzel bun hugging an all beef hot dog dressed in a horseradish aioli. Or if you like simplicity, then the Date Night Plate complete with an assortment of brie and mozzarella cheeses, chili infused mango, in house salsa, balsamic glazed cherry tomatoes, candied walnuts, dried cranberries, and prosciutto will bring love to any occasion.
