3rd Street Pizza Company pairs New York–style pizzas, fire-baked on hot stones, with blockbuster films projected on a cinema-size screen in its very own Moonlight Theater. Meal- and movie-goers select from a menu of 30-plus pie toppings, such as black beans and bacon, to project onto 14 inches of hand-tossed dough for two hours. Guests may alternatively opt to munch on 2 of the pizzeria’s 11 sandwiches, such as the Fred Rock with smoked turkey, bacon, and swiss cheese. Brews or soft drinks accompany the silver-screen action of flicks the likes of Puss in Boots and The Twilight Saga, presented in 12-speaker surround sound and optional commentary from the pizza kitchen.
3rd Street Pizza Company
Since 1997, 3rd Street Pizza Company has fused food and film into a ready-made night out. On one side of the business, hand-tossed dough is fired atop hot stones, which yields crisp New York–style pizzas topped with a signature blend of mozzarella, provolone, and monterey jack cheeses. Sauce options also reach beyond the standard red to include thai peanut, pesto, and garlic parmesan. The pies anchor a menu that features calzones, sandwiches, and microbrews, all of which can be taken into showings at Moonlight Theater. Recent releases stretch out across a full-size movie screen that teams up with a 12-speaker surround-sound system as high-tech as the ones judges use to make their verdicts extra scary. The restaurant also supports arts beyond film and pizza—a dining-room wall functions as a rotating gallery space, and live musicians occasionally play during dinner.
