AMC converts six screens at Downtown Disney to dine-and-view

ORLANDO, FL — Six screens at AMC Downtown Disney 24 have been remodeled by AMC to accommodate its dine-and-view concept. Located on the Planet Hollywood side of the megaplex, the theater-within-a-theater offers appetizers, a variety of sandwiches and other main courses, and some desserts, in addition to beer and wine.

They’ve re-purposed the six smaller theaters on the west (Planet Hollywood) side of the complex, pulled the seats out and set up seats in sets of four (except on the edges of the theater, where there are two) seated in front of a counter, with menus, ketchup and a little call button that you press for wait staff service. These 100 seat theaters offer you dinner, drinks (beer, wine) and a movie, much the way The Enzian does it (orders taken by waiter, food delivered to your table).

The idea of a movie theatre with a dine-and-view concept is an idea whose time has come. The Strand Theatre, an independent movie theatre out in Clinton, MA, is one such theatre, and here’s hoping that more movie theatres will follow suit in the future. Since many more movie theatres already do serve beer and wine, maybe that’s a step forward. Who knows??
