Movie and Dinner- age old question...

I think I like him...I think he likes me...we both LOVE food...west side (Hollywood to the beach) we are game...where should we go. We need to be abe to hol a conversation, so someplace that is not tooo loud. Money not an issue...but it is a casual evening, with the movie preceeding dinner.

  1. What about simultaneous dinner and movie at Cinespace?

    1. Park at the Arclight. walk to Los Balcones Del Peru. Its peruvian food. SSSOOOO Good. Its on the corner of Vine & De Longpre. Stuff yourselves silly and then walk back to Arclight theatres to see a good movie. Hope this helps. Have fun lovebirds.

        This is exactly what I was about to post! Other option is to eat at Hungry Cat, and then walk back.

          i second the Hungry Cat/Arclight plan! and i just saw Across The Universe this afternoon- beaUtiful and moving. very romantic.

      2. One westside option: check out a movie at the new Landmark flagship theater at Pico and Westwood and then walk next door to Torafuku. You should be able to hold a conversation with no problem there and you have the chance to check out the assigned seating at the Landmark (or cozy up on a couch in their smaller theaters!).

        The only possible problem with my plan is that Torafuku is not a late night place--I think it closes at 10 on weeknights and maybe 10:30 on weekends???--so it would have to be an earlier movie.
