Cinabar ... Diner "IN" a Movie
We are in Asheville, NC and since it is Sunday and almost everything is closed and it is raining we decided to go to a movie. Directly down the road from is a Cinabar. Yes, a Cinema where you can sit and watch a movie and order food (burgers, sandwiches and pizza) and order drinks (pop, wine, beer). They even serve popcorn that you order during the movie and it is served in a silver bowl. David ordered a Hawian pizza and Robin spinach-mushroom (can you believe that ... a "spinach-mushroom" pizza at a movie ... David wouldn't order that at a spinach-mushroom restaurant). The only problem with the process is that the theater is somewhat dark. A lady sat next to us and ordered a silver bowl of popcorn. We got one bill for our pizza and pop and her popcorn. David wouldn't have minded paying for the popcorn but the lady ate about two handfuls. David sat and watched the whole movie with the bowl of popcorn right in front of him. If he had known he was going to be charged for it he would have ate it, as well. Never-the-less it was a great time. The food was great. Prices were high ($10.00 per pizza, $4.00 for a diet, and $5.00 for the popcorn we didn't eat). Oh, and the movie was really good ... The Proposal. Highly recommend it. But, if you go to the Cinabar make sure you know who is paying for what.
