So now AMC is opening up this new concept and I have to say, at first blush, it looks pretty good. There are two pricing tiers, $20 or $25 per ticket. Of that, ten dollars goes to the movie ticket and the rest goes to a food credit. I've included a sample menu below (the menu and the pictures come from the AMC web site), so you can see the prices aren't too bad, there's nothing on the menu over $11.99. Don't know anything about how good the food is yet, but given what the prices were for food before this change, that's really no too bad.
In addition to the physical change of the space, the biggest change is that the fact the people under 18 aren't allowed in to the theater at all unless they're accompanied by an adult. And they're not allowed into the Cinema Suite at all, with or without an adult. That alone will make this a very different movie going experience.
I've reached out to get a more official tour and I'll try to go to the theater to have the experience and I'll report back on what happens. The big question is whether or not people will pay $20 for a movie ticket and dinner at the theater.
