Since 1936, the historic Gem Theatre has moved movie lovers to laughter and tears with films in an elegant, comfortable single-screen vintage theater. Peruse current showtimes and choose a first-run film, which may include a romantic romp, a superhero adventure, an independent feature, or Casablanca II: Electric Boogaloo. Guests pick up their sodas and popcorn at the concessions stand in the carpeted lobby, whose ornate table lamps cast soft light on potted plants and flowers. In the red and gold 916-seat amphitheater, upholstered floor seats beckon audience members and balcony perches provide a sky-high view behind marbled wood rails. Before the film, guests watch wrought-iron vines curl around colorful birds in sculptures flanking the screen. Sumptuous gold curtains hide the big screen until showtime, allowing staff members to finish reenacting each film’s climactic scene in private.

The trendy, eclectic decor at MGLounge offers a stylish environment for groups to unwind with a drink or a quick bite to eat. Green, blue, and red neon lights lend a modern vibe amid some of the space's more casual elements, such as the towering bundles of bamboo stalks and the tables made from halved barrels. While seated at one of the high-topped tables or groupings of black armchairs and love seats, guests can indulge with shareable small plates from a menu that routinely changes, and might feature anything from pulled-pork sliders and mango-habanero wings to gourmet cheese plates and lobster tails with butter sauce. A selection of more than 50 craft beers complements the varied menu. To keep patrons entertained in-between bites and sips, MGLounge also hosts live musical performances.

In 1971, Larry and Evelyn Hilton took it upon themselves to try making a few gallons of wine. Although they battled a difficult climate, the Hiltons used their small 3-acre plot of land to plant french-hybrid grapes, and somehow they survived. Today, they make a long list of wines from fruits grown at their vineyard and winery.

The meals served at Bonfire Bar & Grill are exactly the type you might expect to eat around a bonfire at a backyard barbecue—there's crab cakes with roasted corn; strawberry salad with blue cheese; grill-fired pork ribs; hand-formed burgers topped with smoked bacon. Though rooted in comfort food, Bonfire's menu, like a dancing chimney sweep, has its moments of elegance. Spice-rubbed salmon is paired with local tomatoes, and asparagus brightens up a plate of garlic mashed potatoes and a 6-ounce filet. Diners can enjoy those meals in front of the sporting events broadcast each evening, or stop in for regular live events such as trivia and poker tournaments.
