Dinner & a Movie: Marina Del Rey Getting SoCal's 1st AMC Dine-In Theatre

We need to hear from you.
Today during our spring member drive, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

Sitting on your butt in the dark watching a movie you paid too much for to see is about to get better if you hang out in Marina Del Rey. SoCal's first AMC Dine-In Theatre will be going in at Villa Marina Marketplace, reports Marina Del Rey Patch.

The theatre will be a whopping 34,318 square feet, and will feature auditoriums that have reserved seating, seat-side service. Patrons will be able to order restaurant-style food and cocktails. So basically you can get your dinner-and-a-movie all in one place.

AMC's Dine-In theatres have two kinds of "experiences" they offer patrons, including the more casual "Fork & Screen" set-up and the more upscale "Cinema Suites." On the sample menu offered online for the Dine-Ins are all manner of chicken tenders, appetizer platters, sugary cocktails, burgers, pizzas, salads, sandwiches, "pizzettas," and a ton of sweet treats, all in the sort of TGI Fridays vein. You'll be able to enjoy the new Dine-In Theatre in MDR in late spring 2012.

There are AMC Dine-In Theatres in Atlanta, Dallas, Kansas City, New Jersey, Orlando, and Phoenix.
