movie theater with dinner

Okay i would like to find the name of the movie theater that is a place for families that serves food! Thank you! I know the food would probably not be great-but it might be a fun night for a family!

  1. Are you asking if there is such a place, or that you know there is, but not where it is? I know the Showcase Cinema at Patriot Place in Foxboro has a restaurant, but it says you can dine before or after the movie, not during it.

      The Luxe Level here does serve food during the movie. Ive eaten dinner here once and we realized that while we love that they will serve us beer during the movie, the food just isnt worth it. That said-it is a fun experience

        Hi! Yes I had heard there is a movie place that has a seperate room where tou can watch the movie and order food-just like pizza- chicken wings,etc!

          Chunky's is great for the family. The food is all fried stuff plus burgers, sandwiches etc. you can also get beer and wine. My only caveat is I think it would be hard to watch a movie with an intricate plot. There are lots of distractions with all the serving/clearing going on. THey do thier best to stay out of the way, but its hard (atleast for me) not to be distracted at times. For that reason, we usually see "easy movies: Shrek, get the idea. The other fun thing is that you sit in old cadillac or lincoln car seats, that are on swivel bases and recline and roll so that you can position yourself just the way you like. I recommend it.

        2. Not in Boston but located on the Cape in Falmouth MA is the Falmouth Cinema Pub. Food is okay. A nice night out for the family and I think they serve Sunday afternoons also.

            I think they have an outpost in Attleboro.

          2. There is also the Strand in Clinton and the Draft House in Millbury. They both serve pub food and beer. Some ot the Showcase have a premier restaurant, which i think you can eat while watching.

              In Framingham, there's the AMC Premium, next to the regular AMC theater. Bigger seats, tray in front of each. You can get burgers, steak , etc. Not as laid back as Chunky's, and you pay a "premium", but a fun change of pace. No kids, though, but you can get a drink with your meal. Also, unlimited soda and popcorn with your ticket, though if you're having a meal, too....

                The Strand in Clinton is a very friendly place - an old fashioned movie theatre experience with a twist (you can eat meals in your seats). During December they are running some holiday classic movies at 4pm. They have a menu with burgers, sandwiches, pizza, soda, beer, and wine. Pretty cool! Here's their website: .

            2. You'd have to wait for the good weather to return, and it's a bit of a drive, but the Mendon Twin Drive-In is a lot of fun. Their snack bar is surprisingly pretty good, and at $20/auto, it's an especially good deal for a family.
