At Cinebarre, the latest action-packed thrillers and romantic comedies light up the theaters' screens?but the establishment is as much a restaurant as a movie theater. Each row of seats faces a table, and during the show, waitstaff silently peruse the theater, taking orders for cocktails and a wide variety of gourmet eats. The plates range from warm tortilla chips with house-made salsa to burgers and pizzas. To make things more fun, each dish also gets a movie-themed name: think Goldfingers (hand-breaded chicken tenders), the Bull Durham (pizza topped with pepperoni, Canadian bacon, and sausage), or the Fight Club sandwich, which the chefs refuse to talk about.

Elvis Cinemas invites wide-eyed audiences to plunge into the ocean, soar above the clouds, and traipse across stretches of barren desert, all from the comfort of a theater seat. Its trio of theaters shows Hollywood blockbusters but keeps ticket prices down by playing them slightly after their initial release, when the characters have learned from their mistakes and changed their movie’s plot accordingly. Unlike the massive movie corporations whose theater complexes pop up in every city and shopping mall, Elvis Cinemas is Colorado owned and operated and focuses all its attention on just three theaters.

Cinebarre combines a slate of first-run movies with a courteous, alcohol-enhanced atmosphere and crave-worthy kitchen concoctions. The menu features items with movie-inspired names, allowing cinephiles to pick a dish that aligns with their preferred genre or favorite Bill Paxton performance.

The Blue Velvet Burger––ground in-house––piles a juicy half-pounder with blue cheese, buffalo hot sauce, burger toppings, and a kick of chipotle mayo ($10). Appetizers, such as Some Like It Hot Wings ($9) and Lord of the Onion Rings ($7), make arduous journeys to melt into a copious selection of wine and local craft beers, as well as mixed drinks, including the Lolita Margarita ($6).
