Best Movie Theaters for Food Lovers

Slide 6 of 13

Commodore Theater, Portsmouth, VA

There’s only one screen featuring 12 showings per week at this former World War II-era theater listed on Virginia’s historic register, but tickets—which are only available for purchase the day of—sometimes sell out several hours in advance of the actual showing. The Commodore retains most of its original art deco design work, which includes midcentury details like a functioning 1940s pay phone in the lounge, and cabaret-style seating in the main theater, where guests are arranged at round tables in front of the screen. Patrons come back for an oddball mix of delicious comfort foods like hot cinnamon loaves, baked in-house daily and topped with white cake icing, and a gooey nacho platter smothered in ground beef, cheddar cheese, lettuce and diced tomatoes. commodoretheatre.com
