we had a giftcard, sorry to find it restricted us to the upstairs. Next time we would use the gift card for movies only

We really like to come for dinner & a movie as it is a relaxed atmosphere. We can have an alcohol beverage because it will be 2 1/2 hours before you will leave to drive home. We prefer to have dinner in advance of the film and we get first choice at picking our seat 1/2 hour before the movie starts. Although the screen is not as large as the cinema, the audio presentation is also not as loud (I like that). I am a senior and enjoy the reduced senior movie rate that is offered by combining dinner with the movie. The menu is small and the food is very fresh & tasty. Portion sizes are appropriate and I feel comfortably satiated at the end of my meal. There is something for every one.

If we are planning to see the movie, we always books dinner at the bookshelf. Dinner & Movie offers discounted movie tickets, seat reservations, very good food, quiet environment and a nice menu. I recommend the salmon. The salads are scrumptious. The menu fits my low carb diet.

Food was great. Especially loved the Arctic char and smoked fried pickles. Service was great. Also great to have our seats saved for cinema. Glitch on Open table reservation that they did not have our reservation. It all worked out though :)
