Dinner and a Movie in the Same Place?

Posted: Feb. 4th, 2013  |  By Michael Pearse

Many St. Louis theaters are taking to heart the saying “dinner and a movie” as they are opening new locations, which offer precisely that; a meal paired with a film. This seems quite convenient for all you love birds as you only have to go to one location for a complete date night.

ST. LOUIS, MO (AP) -- Popcorn at the movies is one thing. A meal from a marquee chef raises the culinary stakes considerably.

 MX Movies opened for business in downtown St. Louis on Friday, marking the first time since a 10-screen multiplex at Union Station closed in 2003 that downtown has had a movie theater.

But MX Movies is more than that. The theater, which opened with showings of "Lincoln," "Les Miserables" and "Django Unchained," is the latest example of a dine-in theater with roomier seats and table-side food service.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the supervising chef is Josh Galliano, formerly executive chef at the popular restaurant Monarch.
