Historic Movie Theater to Reopen in New York; Will Pair Food with Films

Few people come to New York for its movie theaters, but that may change when the historic Metro Theater on 100th Street and Broadway returns as the first Alamo Drafthouse Cinema in the state.

According to the West Side Rag, the Texas chain is popular with film buffs—they screen everything from the latest hits to indie films and classics. But beyond the historic location, here's where it becomes fancy: The theaters offer full food service, and guests can have food and wine delivered to their seats while they watch their film. Even better, the meals are paired to go with the movie, so a food-focused film like Like Water for Chocolate might be matched with recipes prepared onscreen.

No word yet on an opening date for the New York theater (which will reportedly have five screens), but keep an eye out on LuxuryTravelAdvisor.com as details emerge.
