Spotlight Theaters? screens enrapture audiences with first-run movies. In each movie house, digital sounds and visual projections of fresh Hollywood films alight inner emotions of audiences resting in plush, high-backed seats?each outfitted with a coin-operated mustache comb?or thrown directly into the action through 3-D technology. As eyes and ears relish motion-picture pursuits, soda, candy, and bounties of salty, crunchy popcorn emerge from the concession stand to occupy chatty mouths or catapult towards the screen to feed the hungry actors. Front Street?s brand new Spotlight Theater also houses a full-service restaurant and will soon feature themed movie-and-food pairings, such as French cuisine with French films.

Before catching a thrilling blockbuster or whimsical cult classic at Spotlight Theatres, hungry moviegoers drop into Front Street Bistro—the sleek American eatery located in the theater’s lobby. Smartly dressed servers bustle about the cushy booths of the airy space, balancing trays of artisanal flatbreads, sizzling burgers, and Mediterranean-inspired specialties. Behind the bar, mixologists dole out glasses of specialty martinis, muddled cocktails, and drafts of craft beer. After dinner, the theater invites guests to bring drinks or a bottle of wine into the theater to sip on while watching a film.

The chefs at Gio's Restaurant & Lounge cater to virtually every taste with a menu of eclectic international and American cuisine. They craft hearty pizzas with freshly kneaded dough, whole-milk mozzarella, and signature red or white sauces, as well as 24 toppings such as ricotta cheese, bacon, and hot peppers. The cooks spend the rest of the mealtime hand-battering buffalo wings, shaving off slices of gyro meat, and grilling half-pound burger patties over one of the kitchen's many Bunsen burners. Neutral-toned walls and plenty of open space help to create a welcoming ambience in the dining room, while the lounge area's red sofas, flat-screen televisions, and pool table encourage diners to stay for a bit after eating.

Bluto's Bar and Grill's flame masters sizzle up a menu brimming with hearty appetizers, pizza, sandwiches, and salads within an activity-abundant nosh haven. Avoid gabbing about presidential candidates at the dinner table and instead argue about the electability of thin-crust pizza toppings, such as roasted red pepper, meatball, mushroom, or the inarticulate yet photogenic eggplant ($12.99 for a small with 4 toppings). Or create your own 100% Angus beef burger ($8.99 for a half pound), which flaunts your choice of cheese and sauce—such as honey mustard, garlic parmesan, or teriyaki— and nestles up to a side of sweet-potato fries. Cooks submerge bare or breaded chicken wings ($9.95 for 12) into a dunk tank of teriyaki, garlic parmesan, honey mustard, or barbecue before setting them free to roam the esophageal plains.
