Delectable Dining: What's on the menu at select theatre circuits

Cinemas Features

Popcorn, candy and soda will always be staples at the movie theatre, but there’s been a seismic change in the kinds of food you’ll find available at many cinemas today. More and more, the public has gotten accustomed to planning a dinner or lunch at their local theatre rather than dining elsewhere before or after the film. The variety of delectable treats available reveals our business at its most creative. Here’s just a sampling of what’s on offer at some of the leading movie-dining establishments.
