Tucson moviegoers are going to have to decide if they want beer or wine with their entrées while watching a film, at least at one theater this fall when Roadhouse Cinemas takes over the Grand Cinemas Crossroads 6 theater located in the Crossroads Festivals shopping center at the corner of East Grant and North Swan Road. According to the press release, $2 million dollars will go to renovating the movie house, including new niceties like sizable leather reclining seats, high end projection and seatside service from a wait staff. "There will be a Roadhouse style restaurant and bar area in the lobby with an adjoining outdoor patio," Roadhouse Cinemas General Manager Scott Cassell said.
Menu items will feature entrées and desserts made from scratch by two-time Silver Spoon winner Vincent Mast, according to the press release. Cassell says the theater will sell local craft beer and wine. "We are going to bring a brand new concept in movie theaters to Tucson that is sweeping the nation with tremendous popularity," Cassell said.
Film lovers attending the pub-style theater must be 21 years or older. Roadhouse will offer first-run and family films, but children must be accompanied by an adult.
