Good Taste in Film

Going beyond the traditional movie munchies, St. Louis’ two new dine-in movie theaters offer full dinner and cocktail menus in a plush setting, making for a truly decadent moviegoing experience. It’s perfect for a multi-tasking date night or for those looking for something a little more special than the typical popcorn-and-soda routine.

With three digital theaters, the brand-new MX Movies Downtown offers cutting-edge in-seat ordering technology. With the press of a button, guests can order local Midwestern dishes from Chef Josh Galliano—anything from crab cakes to pizzetas to the Illinois quarter-pound burger, complete with ham jam and shaved red onions. The theater, located in the Mercantile Exchange District, is for all ages, but offers full bar service for guests 21 and older.

AMC West Olive’s newly renovated dine-in theaters offer table service in two different formats. The Cinema Suites allow moviegoers to indulge in adult beverages and fabulous food in a 21-and-up setting with luxurious leather recliners. For those with kids or teens in tow, Fork & Screen offers the same extensive menu without the age requirement. Catching a happy-hour matinee? Arrive early to grab a cocktail in the Hitchcock-themed lounge, MacGuffins.
