Great idea for a cafe for the movies. Hope the pricing is decent
We went to the movies last weekend and were surprised to see the cafe there and open! It was busseling and inviting. The glasses of wine we had were delicious and reasonably priced. Added bonus: the wine is served in pretty plastic “glasses” so we were able to enjoy it while watching our movie. Grass Valley needed something like this! 🙂
Looks like fun! Thanks for the link to the movie club too. Can’t wait to go.
Looking forward to trying the cafe. Popcorn is always good, but those potato wedges might be a nice change for a vegan!
Thanks for all of the info!
I saw this last time we caught a movie and looks SOOO great. So glad we finally have such a venue and hope people catch on (or maybe i was just there for a slow night?) because the prices seemed much more reasonable than they are at the cafe-theaters i’ve been to elsewhere!!
Super excited about the new cafe! What’s better than wine and a movie?
We live close by so I’m glad to find out about this. Thanks Erin.
I’m looking forward to seeing how it looks and tastes. Glad they are looking for ways to give movie goers a better experience. Personally I love the live broadcasts from the UK.
Very excited to check out the CineCafe!! Sounds delightful 🙂
That sounds really fun!
I like to take my grandson to the movies when I am there visiting. I am sure he will like the cafe!
Nice! This sounds great. I’ve heard great things about La La Land … Maybe if I win, I’ll get a babysitter and score a date night. 🙂
I recently saw Manchester by the sea (great!) at Sierra Cinemas and noticed the fancy café !
Erin, you don’t even want to know the last time I saw a movie. Excited for my first (since Lincoln…) to be at the cinecafe!
Chocolate Porter, please.
Always good to have good quality beer on tap.
Can’t wait to try this!
Cheers! Great option for this lovely weather we’re having.
Can’t wait to see La La Land!
Me too! Looks like we’ll have to wait till later in the month… but sounds like a great movie.
Four of my favorite things! Food, wine, popcorn and movies. Can’t wait to check it out. Thank you!
Yeh – we saw this when we saw the Arrival. Would be great to check it out!
I am so eager to enjoy some yummy food while catching a movie here!
Love our local theaters, and look forward to trying out the new Café!
Sounds like a fun outing to go for a matinee and lunch!
I love watching movies at the Del Oro theater. It feels like being a part of histor. It’s such a treat to be able to walk around town before and after. I can’t wait to try the new cine cafe
I love the movies!
I cant wait to try out the new cafe. Beer and a movie sounds good to me,
Looking forward to trying the cafe!
Popcorn And a Beer!!!
I can’t say enough nice things about Mike and Barbara Getz. I worked for them for 3 years. It was my first real job. They are great people. I have so many wonderful memories from that time in my life. It’s awesome to see the theaters evolving and expanding. Great job Azriel and Micheal.
Movie and a glass of wine sounds Devine!
I can’t wait to see Manchester by the Sea! Might need to grab dinner too!
Yay! I can’t wait to go and check it out 🙂
Can’t wait to give it a whirl……
Nice, like Studio Movie Grill but local and with the best wine/ beer 🙂 My coworkers were telling me Passengers is supposed to be great…
Thank you, I LOVE THIS! I look forward to coming in to see Hidden Figures. I appreciate you showing this gem of a film in out area.
I love the fact that all our theaters are small! Adding a Cafe to the Sierra Theater is a brilliant idea.
I’m really excited about it! My husband and I can’t wait to be able to enjoy a brew while watching movies. 🙂
Really like the idea of easy access to healthy food snacks available at the movies. Saves time, when try to get to the movie on time.
Looking forward to the new cafe/cinema experience. Tuesday we gather!
Can’t wait to try the pork sandwich while watching a great movie! The two go together! Awesome!
I love the idea! It was a pleasant surprise to see the cafe open when the family and I went to see a movie. It looks lovely, they did a great job. Nice addition to the community.
What an upgrade! LaLaLand and a local brew please!
Great idea. Food and wine. Class act
So excited for a hometown movie cafe! Our local theaters are the best! The popcorn is always delicious and we appreciate the toppings we get to sprinkle on for flavor. We look forward to enjoying the cafe!
