Danforth Music Hall - concession stand?

Does anyone know if there is food for sale at the Danforth Music Hall? Thinking of hitting the Toxic Avenger, but won't have time to eat dinner beforehand.

Thanks.

      I agree, grabbing a gyro from Messini for a quick bite before the show is a good option.

      They do have a small concession stand selling chips, pop and candy. Good luck!

        I don't think so, very briefly after the renovation of the theatre last year they tried to run a cafe but I'm pretty sure that didn't last.

        Across the street and about 1/2 a block east is Dash Kitchen they do take out sandwiches and salads and have a small space where you can sit in but they close at 7

            That's a great deal! But sadly I'll only have about 20 minutes before showtime to chow down.

              There's a McDonald's almost across the street, and a few places in the immediate area that you could probably grab something in 15 minutes, they are probably better than the concession stand.

              I tried the theatre prix fixe menu the other day and I was disappointed. Maybe it was my choice of options.
              I tried the Bibb Salad which was just ok and the Orecchiette which had a lot of butter on it... so much so.. that I couldn't taste anything else.
              The sorbet was ok, but after all that butter... I just couldn't eat anymore.
              I wish I had stuck to the regular menu.
