Cinema Grill's newly updated 3-D and high-definition projectors light up screens with current films presented in all-digital picture and sound. After paying admission ($2.50 for matinees; $4 for evening shows, $3 for kids and seniors after 6 p.m.), theatergoers can grab comfy seats in swivel chairs and some fresh popped corn ($3.99–$5.99) and other surprising options off an extensive menu. Servers flit from seat to seat, dispensing entrees such as cheese-topped cheddar burgers ($8.99) or crispy chicken sandwiches ($9.99). Hot-fudge sundaes ($5.99) and cheesecake ($4.99) satiate sweet teeth, and of-age patrons can snag R-rated beverages, including plain, peach, or strawberry margaritas ($4.99) or mugs of Fat Tire ale ($3.99) and irish coffee ($5.99).
A movie palace to its core, The Cinema Grill favors a vibrant color scheme rarely seen outside the early days of Technicolor. The lobby's multi-hued walls surround the checkerboard box office with bright yellows, blues, and purples, while neon curlicues on the ceiling beckon movie-goers toward their movie. The menu of American staples mirrors the colorful decor with glowing margaritas, desserts topped with maraschino cherries, quesadillas speckled with green peppers, and deep-fried rainbows. Once ensconced in their swivel chairs, guests bathe in the high-definition (and sometimes three-dimensional) glow of the silver screen as servers take food orders and keep eating areas laden with plates of buffalo wings and shrimp fettuccine alfredo. Beers, cocktails, or glasses of wine are also available.
