Dinner & Movie Deals in the D

It’s a cold Friday night in February and you’re looking for something to do. Perhaps you’re searching for a simple gift for your favorite couple. Either way, we all love to eat, and who doesn’t enjoy going to the movies? Your solution: dinner and a movie in the D.

There are plenty of local restaurants and movie theaters that team up to offer dinner and movie packages, where you can enjoy food and a flick. Here are a few to choose from:

Alexander the Great

Known for its ribs, Alexander’s teams up with Emagine Entertainment and MJR Digital Cinemas for its dinner and a movie package. The special menu includes barbecue items, house favorites, sandwiches and salads.

Half Broasted Chicken, Breaded Shrimp and Pulled Pork Platter are a few of your options. Be sure to save room for popcorn at the movies!

Mexican Gardens

Dinner and a movie at Mexican Gardens consists of a $20 gift card to the restaurant, along with two tickets to MJR Digital Cinemas, good for use at any time. Sizzling fajita dinners, chimichangas, botanas, burritos, tacos and more are all on the menu.

Mexican specialties include a Mexican Grilled Barbecue Chicken Platter, Fajita-Quesadilla Plate and Juanito Burrito.

Ironwood Grill

If you’re a fan of the original restaurant in downtown Plymouth, you’ll love dining at a full-service Ironwood Grill inside of Emagine Royal Oak and Emagine Birmingham. Dinner and drinks before a movie has never been so easy!

The restaurant has a great selection of burgers, pizzas, salads, wraps and entrees.

There is also an Ironwood Grill Express located inside of Emagine Macomb, where you’ll find an assortment of quick bites at the concessions counter.

The Maple Theater & Kitchen

Another great restaurant-movie-theater-in-one combo, The Maple Theater & Kitchen is located in Bloomfield Township. Enjoy appetizers, burgers, pizza, sandwiches and more, then your movie is just steps away.

Items on the menu include Chicken Pot Pie, Five Cheese Pizza and Southwest Salad.

If you dine before your film, just remember not to overstuff yourself: you don’t want to fall asleep during the movie!
