Guests will be able to order food and drinks from an extensive menu in the theater with a server who waits on them throughout the ﬁlm with ninja-like stealth. The free-standing establishment will also feature an inviHng bar in the lobby, where guests can unwind and socialize before or a`er a movie.
About Cinema Cafe
In September of 1985, hospitality/sales professional and entrepreneur, John Walker, joined with investors Richard, Edward, and Jeﬀrey Kramer to open Cinema ‘N' Drafthouse in an existing twin theater in the Pembroke Meadows area of Virginia Beach.
Popularity of the unique concept quickly caught on and it wasn't long before an additional theater was added, making it a three-plex. By the 1990s, as operations shifted to focus on a more family-oriented restaurant atmosphere, "Drafthouse" was dropped and the theater was re-christened as Cinema Cafe. In coordination with that change in focus came a ﬁrmer commitment to customer satisfaction and community support, both of which have clearly contributed to the positive brand image of the Cinema Cafes.
Cinema Cafe has additional locations throughout the Hampton Roads community and is looking forward to welcoming and serving guests in the Edinburgh location. For more updates and information on Cinema Cafe Edinburgh, follow us on Facebook &
