Cinebarre turning theater into dining experience
ASHEVILLE, NC — The Cinebarre Biltmore Square opened in June in the former UA Biltmore Square 6 in Asheville. This is a new chain that is going to be what AMC was with the megaplexes many years ago.
This is a whole new concept in movie theatres. There 2nd location is scheduled to open in Charleston, SC. What is unique and different about this theatre is it is not only a theatre, but a restaurant. Cinebarre consists of 5 screens. The 6th screen was turned into a kitchen. The former concession stand has been turned into a bar that serves beer, wine and root beer floats. You still have your regular soft drinks and bottled water.
All theatres have high back seats like you find in the stadium theatres. In each row in front of every seat is a counter. The food is reasonably priced and of high quality. Pizzas are made with fresh ingredients and the burgers are ½ lbs of fresh beef, not frozen patties. After a great dinner, enjoy a bowl of popcorn with real butter. They ask that you arrive 30-45 minutes before show time. In front of each seat is a menu. All you have to do to order is write you order on the white cards and place it standing up. A server will pick up your order and your food arrives hot and tasty within a reasonable amount of time. Even during the show, the staff is trained to pick up orders, deliver food and checks without disturbing patrons.
My only regret is that I waited 5 months to check out this great theatre. To find out more about this great chain go to Cinebarre.
