Dinner and a movie go hand in hand. There’s a reason it’s been the cliché date night for as long as Hollywood has been around. If you’re hanging out in Palestine, Texas, you can make it an even more seamless soirée with food and film wrapped in one.

And it’s not just for you and the beau. Children under 10 receive a discounted rate of $20, and children under 2 are admitted free of charge.
