Atlanta, GA: Cobb Cinebistro Town Brookhaven Set to Open September 23, 2011

Posted on Tuesday, September 20th, 2011 10:23 AM and updated on Tuesday, September 20th, 2011 11:38 AM

The Cobb CineBistro @ Town Brookhaven in Atlanta, Georgia is set to open this Friday, September 23, 2011, according to the theater's official web site. The new theater is in the Town Brookhaven development on Peachtree Road, next to Oglethorpe University. It is owned by Cobb Theatres, and is the latest of their CineBistro locations (there are six others in Colorado, Florida, and Virginia), which combines going to the movies with a dining experience for patrons 21 and older.

“We are excited to introduce CinéBistro to Atlanta,” said Fred Meyers, executive director of CinéBistro. “This is an incredibly unique experience unlike anything created before, and we are looking forward to making an impression in this vibrant city as we debut our seventh location. In addition to offering a sophisticated movie and dining experience, we are proud to bring nearly 100 new jobs to the community.”

The CineBistro concept offers the now-common dinner-and-a-movie combination, but it takes it up a notch by making the experience upscale, with luxury amenities such as high-back leather chairs, gourmet meals served at your seat, premium cocktails and fine wine, and even a lounge for a post-movie dessert. You have to be 21 or older to attend a movie at a CineBistro, so the adults-only audience distinguishes the experience as well.

The press release issued by Cobb Theatres last month mentions that all seven auditoriums will be equipped with Digital Cinema Projection systems and will feature screens that measure between 40-50 feet wide. Four of those rooms will be capable of 3D presentations, closed-captions, and assisted audio.

The menu is "American bistro-inspired" with dishes that are prepared daily in-house, with a promise of using the finest ingredients available. Appetizers listed in the press release include the following:

[...] oven baked goat cheese, “The Bay” crab dip with aged cheddar pull-apart rolls, bacon-wrapped dates stuffed with gorgonzola and lamb lollies with potato sauce, fresh thyme and pomegranate glaze. Sandwich selections feature the custom blended house-ground bistro burger, grilled chicken BLT and house-made veggie burger, while salads, such as roasted beets and arugula salad and the signature “Cobb” salad, can be paired with grilled or popcorn chicken, shrimp or salmon or sesame ginger-crusted seared tuna for an additional cost.

Main entrees range from pan-seared Atlantic salmon and habanero glazed
pork tenderloin to blackened ribeye and lump blue crab cakes. Guests can indulge in desserts like blueberry and coconut tart with vanilla bean ice cream, warm chocolate and cherry bread pudding or Cinéful chocolate cake with chocolate and raspberry sauces.

The bar and lounge will feature movie-inspired cocktails and other premium drinks, draft and bottle beers, a wine list, and premium coffees.

We're waiting to get their showtimes for Friday, so keep an eye on their Showtimes page for updates, and for more information, including a map to the theater, a link to the official web site, and more, check out their Theater Information page!
