Guide Review - Fork and Screen - Dinner and a Movie

Fork and Screen is a unique movie-going experience. Not only do can you see top new release movies, but you can enjoy a full restaurant quality meal while doing so. We're not talking popcorn and snow caps, we're talking juicy burgers, grilled sandwiches, salads and flatbread pizzas. There is also a full bar and an array of specialty cocktails available. All of this is brought right to your table as you enjoy the film.

The theaters at Fork and Screen are set up with wide aisles that feature comfortable, theater like chairs arranged around small tables or along a counter. When you head in, pick your table and ring for service using a table-side buzzer. A server will come by and take you order, just like a regular restaurant. Those who are short may have trouble seeing over the next row of high-backed chairs, so it may be best to sit toward the front of the room if you have children with you.

The food is not gourmet standard, but the selection and pricing are along the lines of what you might get at Chili's or a similar casual dining spot. Prices are extremely reasonable considering the attraction-like setting, and movie tickets are on-point as well ($10 for adults).

This is a great place to go to see a comedy, action film, or something else that doesn't require complete concentration. You'll be eating while watching the movie (I recommend arriving a bit before showtime to put your order in) and servers will weave in and out of the aisles to serve you and other patrons. This means its probably not the ideal setting for a serious or suspenseful film. It is, however, a perfect date spot (a twist on the classic dinner and a movie) and a spot that kids would surely get a kick out of.
