Cinemagoers in the outer 'burbs are about to get a taste of what many of us already enjoy: dine-in movie theaters. Austin-based Moviehouse & Eatery is set to open a location in Keller on November 7. Another will follow in Flower Mound in spring 2015.
It may seem like Dallas-Fort Worth already is well-served by dine-in theaters, but the opening of these two will give both cities closer options. The Keller location, part of Keller Town Center, is only Moviehouse & Eatery's second theater following the 2012 opening of the Austin branch.
The Keller location will feature eight dine-in theaters with state-of-the-art theater technology and leather recliners for seats, along with a lounge in the lobby with a full-service bar. Each auditorium will have full food and beverage service from an extensive menu featuring a variety of enticing choices with not-so-standard ingredients made from scratch.
These include a seasonal date plate; several items with a pumpkin seed pesto sauce; the intimidating Big Jake Burger with pepper jack cheese, bacon, horseradish aioli, red pepper relish and bourbon BBQ sauce; and brunch offerings like frittatas and chicken and waffles.
Moviehouse & Eatery Keller will open with one of the most anticipated movies of the year, Christopher Nolan's Interstellar, starring Matthew McConaughey, Jessica Chastain and Anne Hathaway. Tickets will range between $7.50 and $9.50 for pre-noon screenings, with afternoon and evening shows starting at $12.
In addition to Moviehouse & Eatery, Dallas-Fort Worth is expecting another iPic Theater in Frisco at the new Wade Park, plus two more Alamo Drafthouses — one in downtown Dallas and another at the coming-soon Music Factory complex in Irving.
