The new luxury dinner and a movie concept, CinéBistro at The Rotunda, officially opened its doors to the public last night at an event benefiting local non-profit Art With a Heart. The cinema and in-theater dining experience developed by Cobb Theatres is the first of its kind in Baltimore.
“We are proud to open our concept in Baltimore and introduce luxury in-theatre dining to the area. We know that our delicious culinary options and state-of-the-art theaters will add a new vitality to the local dining and entertainment scene,” said Fred Meyers, Vice President of CinéBistro.
The 33,000-square-foot cinema complex combines a movie-going experience with full-service, in-theater dining for ages 21 and over. The chef-driven menu is presented, ordered and delivered seat-side by the wait staff.
CinéBistro’s seven theaters are equipped with the latest technology, featuring state-of-the-art movie viewing capabilities including 4k digital cinema technology and 7.1 sound quality. CinéBistro offers reserved seating in cozy, over-sized leather love seats, with reclining seat backs. Guests must arrive at the theater 30 minutes before show time to receive in-theater service. Seating is individually chosen and reserved online or at the theater by CinéBistro’s concierge staff. The seven theaters will each accommodate from 70-100 guests.
“We aim to combine exceptional hospitality and a luxury ambiance with a cinema experience,” said Derik Farrar, General Manager of CinéBistro at The Rotunda. “Our guests visit CinéBistro to get away from the typical movie-going experience. Whether you’re looking for a date night, girl’s night out, or pure entertainment, we offer every component and tailor the experience in one luxurious package.”
The fully integrated entertainment complex includes a lounge and bar area where guests can choose to dine in the restaurant and full bar, see first-run movies or enjoy an in-theater meal and a movie. Theaters also are available for corporate and group rental.
The bar serves hand-crafted cocktails and an extensive wine list and is open to both theater goers and non-theater goers. The American Bistro menu has been developed and executed by local chef, Mark Davis and will feature appetizers to desserts, with an emphasis on high-quality, freshly prepared ingredients. Guests can choose from custom-blended burgers to prime beef, fresh seafood, and more. Traditional movie concession fare is also available.
CinéBistro will hire a local staff of 100, including concierges, servers and kitchen staff. Applicants can apply in person at the theater or online anytime by visiting https://CinéBistro.com/careers/application-form.php?location=rotunda.
