Around Orlando: AMC Dine-In Theatres

It took me a little more than 3 years to realize it, but living in Orlando is pretty cool. While most locals don’t spend a lot of their time around tourist-y areas (although, I certainly don’t mind it), it’s great to find attractions that a local wouldn’t mind headin’ to every now and then.

Welcome to AMC’s Dine-In Theatres. This is where where a dinner AND a movie are combined to create the ultimate movie viewing experience.

We’ve all been there. We go out to eat, rush to eat our food to head to a movie, right? We’ve been doin’ it for years. But what if you could eat a fine meal, drink a beer AND watch a movie in one sitting? AMC Theatres makes this happen. Located in Downtown Disney, the theatre is perfect for tourists who want to catch a flick in between theme park hoppin’ or locals who want to enjoy a dinner AND a movie.

And I know what you’re thinkin’. “This is gonna to cost an arm and a leg, right B?” Wrong! Ticket prices are generally $2 more at the Dine-In Theatre. Not bad, uh? When you walk in,  selection of drinks at the bar greets you.

Comfy lounge chairs are bar stools are spread throughout the lobby making it perfect for conversations and relaxin’ before your film starts. A few minutes before showtime begins, you can head into your auditorium…

…and plunge into the comfy leather seats.

These aren’t your ordinary movie chairs. These are sooooo comfortable. There is also reserved seating for wheel chairs and booster seats for the kiddies. Once you get all settled, flip through the menu.

Appetizers are reasonably priced ranging from $6-$9. And I’m not talkin’ about popcorn and nachos. We’re talking yummy parmesan cheese fries and gourmet crab rangoon dip.

The entrees are are priced well too. I sampled a delicious flatbread.

Just as you’re getting settled in your seat, a waiter or waitress floats on by and asks what you’d like to have. She takes your order in a cool tablet lookin’ gadget…

…and within minutes you’ve got your meal. Need a refill on that drink? Want to order dessert in the middle of the movie? No problema. A simple press of a button in front of you and your waiter or waitress as at your service; discreetly and promptly.

I know for a fact that I’ll be returning to this theatre. The food alone was definitely worth a re-visit. The entire experience just felt top-notch. AMC Dine-In Theatres are also in 7 other locations including Kansas City, Atlanta, Texas and a few locations in New Jersey. For additional pricing and details check out the AMC  Theatre website.

Think you’ll be stoppin’ by this theatre the next time you’re visting Orlando?


I received a complimentary appetizer, meal and movie viewing as a guest to a media event.
  • I didn’t know about this place! I have been to the Enziam theather many times, but is cool to know that there’s other Movie/Dinner experience out there. Great post!

    • Brittany

      Enzian is awesome too. They show more independent films whereas AMC shows recently releases. I think it’s very cool that we’ve got options. Yay!

  • Kym

    This is cool!!

    • Brittany

      Isn’t it? You’ve got to visit one if you can.

  • MsFarrah

    WOW!!! I was just there this past Saturday while visiting Orlando for the day, I totally agree with you on top notch service:) I wish we had one if these theaters down in the Burg!

    • Brittany

      Hopefully more and more will pop up. The service was excelllllent!

  • Thanks so much for the kind words! Glad that you had a great experience at Downtown Disney 24. We think this concept is a hit.

    • Brittany

      Thanks Shane. I loved it and I am already making plans to attend again. 8)

  • Giselle

    Very cool! I went to one in Miami and it was very nice, but too expensive. They didn’t even have tables just giant trays that folded out of the arm rest and you have to order EVERYTHING before the movie starts. Boo!

    • Brittany

      Nope, AMC’s is definitely worth every penny. We’ll see you in Orlando soon. 😉

    Hey Brittany,
    We have the AMC Dine In Theaters in New Jersey and they are great! One can get a little side tracked by ordering food and drinks while trying to focus on a good movie, but Dine In’s are the best thing since Ice Cream! Loves them!
    Love the blog! Stay sweet!


    • Brittany

      I went again last night and had a great time!! Yay for dine-in theatres!

  • Lex

    Nice post! Orlando is my hometown but being that I haven’t lived there in 13 years, I always feel like a tourist exploring the city. I think this may be one of my stops the next time I’m “home”. :-)

  • There’s a few of those in Atlanta. I’ll have to give them a try. Thanks for the review :)
    XOxo, K
