Posted on Monday, December 13th, 2010 by Scott Jentsch

The AMC Essex Green Cinema in West Orange, New Jersey closed for renovations back in September (read the Journal article), and re-opened on November 17, 2010 with new in-theater dining options for its guests.

“We are excited to present AMC Essex Green 9 as one of our flagship AMC Dine-In Theatres,” said Gerry Lopez, chief executive officer and president, AMC. “This concept showcases the options we provide our guests. It’s one example of how AMC embraces consumer trends and takes a proprietary approach to food and beverage service at the concession stand and inside our auditoriums.”

The theater now offers two meal-with-your-movie options, as well as a bar and lounge:

Cinema Suites® - Four auditoriums will feature:

  • Premium, upscale in-theatre dining
  • Reserved seating in luxury recliners
  • Up to nine feet of row spacing
  • Extensive menu including Cinema Suites specialties such as Bleu Cheese Chips, Blackened Salmon and Lobster Ravioli served on unique swivel tables via seat-side service
  • Cinema Suites guests must be at least 21 years old

Fork & Screen® - Five auditoriums will offer:

  • Casual, in-theatre dining
  • Upgraded, comfortable reserved seating
  • Table-top dining
  • An extensive menu including Crab Rangoon Dip, Thai Coconut Chicken Tenders and Chocolate Loving Spoon Cake served via seat-side service
  • Fork & Screen guests must be at least 18 years old unless accompanied by a parent or guardian (at least 21)

MacGuffins®

  • A full-service bar and lounge area inside AMC Essex Green 9
  • Named after a term coined by famed filmmaker Alfred Hitchcock
  • Features a variety of beer, wine, cocktails and a selection of appetizers and desserts
  • MacGuffins guests must be at least 18 years old; minors accompanied by a parent or guardian (at least 21) are welcome

An adult will pay $10 for a movie ticket plus a $10 "experience charge" in the Fork & Screen auditoriums, and a $15 upcharge in the Cinema Suites. The experience charge is then applied to meal purchases in the auditorium.
