The New Hope Cinema Grill and Outtakes Bar offers a complete dining and entertainment package
There are few places in the metro where you can eat a meal, have a drink, watch live music, see a comedy show and watch a movie all under the same roof.
However, the New Hope Cinema Grill and the adjacent Outtakes Bar offer all of these things.
“I think it’s a really cool idea to be able to eat and watch the movie at the same time,” said Cinema Grill and Outtakes Bar owner Zach Pack.
At most movie theaters, the dining experience centers around popcorn, but at New Hope Cinema Grill, moviegoers can enjoy a movie while eating a full meal.
“I think the kids are really excited about it,” said Makenna Sacre, an educator with ISD 728 Edventure Club, who brought a group of about 50 kids. “Personally, I think it’s good not to carry around 50 different lunch boxes, so that’s good, and they can taste new pizzas.”
Pizza is just one of the many options on the menu. Zach Pack bought the business a year and a half ago after the previous owner threatened to shut it down.
“I’ve been working here for about 10, 11 years or so,” Pack said. “And when the landlord said we were going to close it, I just didn’t want my house to go away, basically.”
A unique experience
Owning a bar, restaurant, and movie theater certainly comes with its challenges, but for Pack, it’s a labor of love to keep this New Hope landmark alive.
“We have food, we have drinks, we have friends and fun and a stage with music every Saturday night,” Pack said. “Just the place to go.”
The venue is a one-stop-shop for entertainment and dining that offers a unique experience for people of all ages.
“Personally, I’ve never seen anything like this before,” Sacre said. “Obviously you can get food in movie theaters, but I feel like it’s just a whole different vibe. The seating is really nice. There are tables, which is great.
For the most part the food is typical of bars, but they recently launched a breakfast menu, offering six dishes for $6.00 each.
It’s just one of the many things that keep customers coming back for more.
“I mean, that’s what the Cinema Grill is,” Pack said. “Gather your family, have fun.”
