Snacks turn movie-going into a two-way dialogue, from popcorn thrown at actors onscreen to scalding-hot cheese sauce poured over substandard projectionists. Make a statement with today's Groupon: for $4, you get two tickets to Raleighwood Cinema Grill (up to a $9 value).
Raleighwood Cinema Grill melds a full-service restaurant with a movie theater to simultaneously sate moviegoers’ cinematic and gastronomic cravings. Silver-screen surfers explore cinematic worlds from padded swivel chairs at cabaret-style tables as Raleighwood's waitstaff brings sandwiches, pizzas, and drinks, keeping plot-spoiling mouths occupied (food and drink not included in ticket price).
The theaters are enhanced with full-sized CinemaScope projection and Dolby surround sound, ensuring a state-of-the-art experience that surpasses home-produced shadow-puppet shows set to half-remembered sitcom theme songs.
The restaurant also offers beer, wine, and wine-based concoctions, as well as daily specials, such as a half-priced appetizer with every two entrees on Saturdays and $3 off large pizzas on Tuesdays. The cinema sells out often, so patrons should be sure to come early.
Seven Google Mappers and eight Yelpers give the Raleighwood Cinema Grill a 3.5-star average. Though reviews are mixed about the food and service, reviewers enjoy the family-friendly theater atmosphere.
- They have a great staff, some have been there since we first came in 1995. The food has always been great. It's freshly prepared so it can take some time to be served when they are busy so we always order an appetizer. – Ryan, Google Maps
- It's really fun. I like to go there with friends to drink beer and watch a movie. I also love taking my son and getting the orange cream float. Heather B., Yelp, 1/23/08
Raleighwood Cinema Grill
At Raleighwood Cinema Grill, mid- and second-run movies flicker across a full-size screen with HD Digital Projection, brought to life with enhanced Dolby Digital surround sound. Yet what sets the theater apart is the experience off the screen. Instead of stacking seats into rows or demanding patrons stack into human pyramids to cram as many bodies in as possible, Raleighwood cultivates a relaxed atmosphere. Patrons lounge on cushioned, swiveling chairs at cabaret-style tables with a beer or glass of wine while servers lay out a menu of burgers, pizzas, and appetizers. Comedies, dramas, and family films enhance the flavor of dishes and the calendar of special events and food specials.
