Dipson Theatres celebrates a reputation as a regional movie institution with a network of 12 locations lighting 57 silver screens across Michigan, New York, and Pennsylvania. Though the company now spreads across the northeast United States, it began in the small city of Batavia, NY, in 1939—a time when movies were called “picture shows,” Roosevelt was in the White House, and everybody could only see in black and white. Today that tradition underlies the cinematic experience as patrons chomp popcorn and sip sodas, marveling at modern 3-D visual adventures, summer action movies, family-friendly features, or even indie art flicks and footage from world-renowned opera performances.
Bootleggers Bar and Grill fills hollow bellies with an extensive and eclectic menu of American classics plated up within a warm, casual atmosphere. Share a premeal snack of chicken or beef macho nachos, a mixture of chili con queso, refried beans, sweet peppers, and shredded cheese blanketing house-made tortilla chips ($5.99) while discussing the benefits of naming children Chevy Nova, or prepare solo stomachs with the popular Texas-seasoned baked-potato soup ($2.50 for a cup, $3.75 for a bowl).
Homemade, cooked-to-order meals pair with a roster of 14 on-tap beers to bring a taste of the Emerald Isle to the East Coast. This cozy eatery is designed to replicate an authentic Irish pub, down to the front doors that creak in a thick brogue. Locals may relax with a pint at tables near the front of the pub, or move through dark French doors to sit in the dining room. Between bites and laughs, patrons shift their attention to six flat-screen TVs or the tunes scrolling across an Internet jukebox. Upstairs, a spacious banquet room plays host to parties, and outside, a covered patio accents summertime meals with warm breezes and the rustling of trees wrestling to get a better view of the pub's signature potato leek soup.

Vermont Tavern silences boisterous stomachs with platters laden with hearty pub grub. Lubricate rusty jaw hinges with starters such as sausage-stuffed poblano peppers, a gardeny basket filled with mildly spiced italian sausage and topped with homemade marinara and shredded parmesan cheese ($8.50). Main events such as the Ox Roast sandwich, a kaiser roll loaded with slow-roasted beef ($7.95), satisfy meaty cravings, and comforting helpings of V.T. mac 'n' cheese snuggle tongues in a bed of pasta, marinated chicken, and creamy sauce ($11.95). Circle-savoring patrons may sample the Margaretta Villa pizza, which tops hand-flung dough with fresh basil pesto sauce, roasted roma tomatoes, and fresh buffalo mozzarella, quenching appetites and doubling as a disk in the event of an impromptu ultimate Frisbee match ($9.95). In addition to satisfying eats, Vermont Tavern acts as a conductor for an electric atmosphere, hosting live music and energetic events.
