If you love to see the latest flicks and don't want your main course to consist of popcorn and junior mints, you may be excited to hear about a couple new, or new and improved, locations where you can enjoy dinner and drinks with the superhero of your choice.
AMC Fork & Screen Buckhead, formerly the Buckhead Backlot, features casual tabletop dining and seat-side service in all auditoriums. Guests can order from a diverse menu of fire-grilled gourmet burgers, flatbread pizzas, quesadillas, wedge salad wraps, a wide variety of desserts and the traditional theatre concessions. To wash it all down there is beer, wine and cocktails. The renovated theatre also includes MacGuffins, a warm, relaxing and inviting bar with a spacious lounge featuring food and beverage options. Named after a term coined by famed film-maker Alfred Hitchcock, guests will be able to relax before or after their entertainment at MacGuffins' tables and soft-seating areas.
AMC Fork & Screen Buckhead is reserved for guests 18-years-old and older, and minors accompanied by a parent or guardian. Ticket prices are: $5 Mon.-Thu. and Fri.-Sun. before 4 p.m.; $10 after 4 p.m. Fri.-Sun.; $5 for childen, for all showtimes. MacGuffins is open daily, including lunch, and a ticket purchase is not necessary to enjoy the bar.

If you are OTP, you can still drink at the movies in public. Northlake Festival Movie Tavern in Tucker, serves casual food with alcoholic beverages. Their menu features pizzas with movie names like the “Godfather” and “Goodfellas,” but that is the extent of their cleverness. The rest of the menu is standard bar food and save for the “Three Amigos’fiesta bowl,” the remaining menu items are titled what they actually are, i.e. chicken wings.
Northlake Festival Movie Tavern prices are $7 Sun-Thurs, $8 Fri-Sat, and $5 child/senior/matinee.

And look for Cinebistro, a dinner-and-a-movie theater from Birmingham-based Cobb Theaters, to open in 2009 in Brookhaven. Unlike the other two, this will cater to an upscale, adults-only crowd. The theater will offer valet parking, cutting-edge cuisine and a lobby that could double as a stylish nightclub. Most menu items will cost between $10 and $25 and come with suggested drink pairings.
