Harkins Theatres, Arizona’s homegrown movie theatre company, announces plans to bring its new dine-in theatre concept to the new mixed-use development underway on the former site of Paradise Valley Mall in Phoenix and to Lake Pleasant Towne Center in Peoria, AZ. Harkins Ciné Grill™ will feature made-to-order delicious cuisine, craft cocktails, local brews and traditional movie theatre bites combined with Harkins state-of-the-art moviegoing experience.
“I’m thrilled for the opening of our dine-in theatres combining the magic of our state-of-the-art cinema and chef-inspired cuisine,” said Dan Harkins, Owner of Harkins Theatres. “Bringing these together is sure to make the Harkins Ciné Grill™ moviegoing nirvana.”
Harkins Ciné Grill™ will offer a dine-in experience in true Ultimate Moviegoing® fashion! Guests will enjoy the perfect combination of an immersive movie experience and culinary dining for unforgettable moviegoing. The theatre’s craft kitchen and cocktail bar will offer guests made-to-order dishes from a full-service menu, curated cocktails and local beer and wine selections that they can order from their seats. Orders will be delivered discreetly before the opening credits begin, giving moviegoers time to settle into their Harkins Ultimate Loungers® without interrupting one moment of the moviegoing experience.
Each theatre’s indoor/outdoor bar and lounge will open onto an expansive outdoor patio that is perfect for private events and as an additional gathering place for guests to enjoy each other’s company before and after the movie.
