Baltimore, MD - CineBistro dinner-and-movie theater to open Feb. 24 at the Rotunda

From The Baltimore Sun: The concept of dinner and a movie should take on new meaning next week with the opening of Baltimore’s newest movie theater, and the only one to offer fine dining with your film.

CineBistro, which will offer full meals combined with first-run movies at its seven-screen theater, will open Feb. 24 at the Rotunda in Hampden. The movies scheduled for that opening day are “Collide,” “The Great Wall,” “Fifty Shades Darker,” “Fist Fight,” “La La Land” and “John Wick: Chapter Two.”

Before (and possibly during, if the patron prefers) the movies, dining possibilities will include a full range of appetizers, main courses and desserts — everything from “custom-blended burgers to prime beef, fresh seafood, and more,” according to a news release announcing the opening.

Guests will need to arrive at least 30 minutes before the movie begins to take full advantage of the dining options. Admission will be restricted to people 21 and older.

A private-invitation preview* is scheduled for the evening of Feb. 23, with proceeds benefiting local charity Art With a Heart. Tickets, priced at $35-$45, include an open bar, heavy hors d'oeuvers and a film screening.

Cinebistro is operated by Birmingham, Ala.-based Cobb Theatres, which operates 281 movie screens at 24 locations throughout the U.S. The chain operates 10 CineBistros.
