Georgia Theatre Company (GTC) is pleased to announce the completion of the Beechwood Dine-In Cinemas renovation in Athens, Georgia. The newly remodeled theatre features five new luxury auditoriums and GTC’s in-theatre restaurant “Outtakes”, which has a full service kitchen and bar.
The new luxury auditoriums have spacious tilt-back reserved luxury seating with retractable cupholder armrests and are designed with the premium experience in mind, including full service of all Outtakes menu items. These five auditoriums will show premium first-run features, including arthouse product, for all guests to enjoy.
In addition, on April 10th Beechwood will introduce a new admission policy in the remaining five auditoriums. They will become “Encore” auditoriums showing intermediate features at discounted pricing. All 10 screens feature state of the art digital projection with stereo Surround Sound.
The complex now has a new lobby with traditional concession items in addition to the Outtakes dining and bar area. One auditorium was removed to add a full-service kitchen. The new architectural style is sleek and modern with a wooden ceiling feature, blue and teal accent colors, and slatted wooden partition separating the lounge area from the new luxury auditoriums.
The first Outtakes restaurant was opened in Athens at University 16 Cinemas in June of 2013. This third installment of Outtakes has an emphasis on fresh ingredients, local flair and improved flavor profiles providing the guest with a unique experience to enhance their night out at the movies. The Beechwood Dine-In will feature a full service bar with beer, wine, and liquor, including premier wines, micro-brews and crafted cocktails, with an emphasis on an affordable, comfortable and relaxed atmosphere with upscale service and hospitality.[su_spacer size=”20″]
Some of the new menu items include a premium “Georgia Street Taco” with pan seared fish, chiffonade cabbage, house-made pico de gallo and ancho-chipotle sauce, Bourbon BBQ Pulled Pork Slider with house-made Apple Slaw, Tempura Dipped Chicken Fritter with a seasonal scented waffle and praline syrup, and Lobster Mac & Cheese. All Outtakes items can be enjoyed in the premium lounge area or inside any of the ten auditoriums. Menu items are prepared quickly within a maximum ten minute window from order to service.
Tickets for admission can now be purchased at the box office, concession stand, on one of two electronic ticket kiosks in the lobby, or online through the company’s website at www.GeorgiaTheatreCompany.com.
