Best Movie Theaters for Food Lovers
McMenamins Mission Theater & Pub, Portland, OR
Mike and Brian McMenamin are known across the Pacific Northwest for transforming historic buildings into everything from music venues, cinemas and hotels to microbreweries and distilleries. This theater-pub in the city’s Alphabet District is no exception: Once a Swedish evangelical mission, the building is now a single-screen theater showing second-run movies and NFL games. Craft beers, like the McMenamins’ Ruby Ale—a red-tinted, raspberry-infused creation developed at the brothers’ first brewery in 1986—are the stars here alongside wines from the brothers’ Edgefield Winery. Burgers made with locally sourced beef, Tillamook cheddar cheese and buns from nearby Portland French Bakery round out the standard pub menu. mcmenamins.com
