Places We Love: Cinebarre

It's Friday night, the week has been long and tiring and all you want is to sink into a cushy seat and watch the newest Blockbuster. One problem, popcorn and a soda just isn't what you are craving. Maybe it's a cheeseburger, or wine or a vodka tonic or a shot of tequila, and you know what? That's okay! Especially since Seattle has wonderful movie theaters like Cinebarre and Big Picture that will serve you the food and alcoholic beverage of your choice right to your movie seat! 

 The movie posters will take you on a trip down memory lane!

Cinebarre is located in Montlake Terrace, right off of I-5 and has a great bar and menu to get you started. You can arrive early and get an appetizer and first drink in the lobby or you can arrive right when the movie is starting and get all the same food/drinks in the theater while you watch. It is just your preference! 

 If there is ever an option to doing something with or without wine, always go with wine.

The decor/vibe is decent considering it's owned by a giant chain (Regal) and the menu matches with all the items named after movies or movie characters (i.e. The Italian Job =  Pepperoni Pizza and Half Baked = Hot Chocolate Chip Cookies). 

Insider Tip: Don't see huge blockbusters here on an opening weekend. It is crazy crowded so they will struggle to get you your order, which is frustrating. We like Cinebarre for matinees or more obscure, low-key movies.
