Today, dine-in theaters offer a solution to our timing troubles by offering complete dinner menus and full bars to accompany first-run features.
Here are the Atlanta dine-in movie theaters, where you can eat dinner while enjoying a first-run movie.
This is the Ritz-Carlton of Atlanta’s dine-in theaters. It’s by far the most polished and most adult. In fact, it has the stiffest age restrictions. Those under 21 are only permitted entry when accompanied by someone over that age, and only before 6 p.m. Location: 1004 Town Blvd., Brookhaven. 404-333-0740.
Movie Tavern has three locations in the metro area and two of those (Roswell and Suwanee) offer in-theater dining. The Northlake location has counter service in the lobby and food can be taken into the show.
Sandy Plains Village, 4651 Woodstock Road, Roswell. 770-407-6653.
Horizon Village, 2855 Lawrenceville Suwanee Road, Suwanee. 678-730-6900.
Northlake Festival, 4043 LaVista Road, Tucker. 678-680-5782.
Studio Movie Grill
This is the most kid-friendly dine-in theater, with special showings and events for families. In addition to standard American grill fare, the children’s menu offers grilled chicken tenders and fruit-for-fries substitutions. You have a choice of two northside locations.
2880 Holcomb Bridge Road, Alpharetta. 770-992-8411 | Studio Grill Alpharetta Movie Showtimes
3850 Venture Drive, Duluth. 770-299-7100 | Studio Grill Duluth Movie Showtimes
40 Powers Ferry Road, Marietta. 678-273-3558 | Studio Powers Ferry Movie Showtimes.
AMC Fork & Screen Buckhead
This is the movie dining experience you most likely expect, with fried foods and breads dominating the menu. It’s where you go to get loaded potato skins, mozzarella sticks, chicken quesadillas and pizza. You also can order larger entrees and substantial desserts.
3340 Peachtree Road N.E., Buckhead Atlanta. 404-467-9619 | AMC Fork and Screen Dine-In Theater Showtimes
