Iron Horse Movie Bistro opened Friday in downtown Scranton.
The movie bistro, located at 301 Lackawanna Avenue, plans to screen movies just like any other theater— but with a twist. In addition to standard movie theater concessions such as popcorn, soda and candy, the bistro will provide a wide selection of actual meals, drinks and cocktails, which will be served to patrons throughout the duration of a movie screening.
The food menu is split into several different categories, according to The Iron Horse Move Bistro’s website. These menu items include premium concessions like loaded nachos and mozzarella sticks, theatre classics like popcorn and candy, hot dogs, various styles of French fries like garlic Parmesan and with old bay seasoning, artisan flatbreads like chicken Italiano and Hawaiian BBQ, small plates like mac and cheese and coconut shrimp, salads, tacos, quesadillas and paninis.
The menu also includes dessert items, such as New York style cheesecake, brownie dippers, Boston crème cake and Italian nachos.
If the food selections weren’t wide enough, the bistro plans to serve a variety of soft drinks and cocktails. The bistro serves standard soft drinks, as well as domestic and imported/specialty tap beers, bottle beer, a beer bucket with four aluminum bottles, red, white and pink wines. In addition, the bistro will serve specialty crafted cocktails and “adult” milkshakes containing alcohol.
Adding onto the vast selection of food and drink options and movie screenings themselves, the theater will provide patrons leather electric reclining seating, the website states.
The theater opened Friday and will screen “The Promise,” “The Circle,” “The Fate of the Furious,” “The Boss Baby,” “Beauty and the Beast,” “Logan” and “Going in Style.”
