Cinema West, the Petaluma-based company that owns Palladio 16 Cinemas in Folsom, is planning a six-screen theater, with a full bar and in-theater food service, in another section of the Palladio shopping center.
Cinema West owner Dave Corkill said the company recently submitted a proposal to Folsom’s building department for a six-screen “dinner theatre” at 400 Palladio Parkway.
Cinema West also is building a multiplex in Woodland that will incorporate the historic State Theatre. The Woodland multiplex, slated for opening in March 2016, is expected as well to serve alcoholic beverages and food from an in-house restaurant.
Details are still being worked out for a planned Cinema West multiplex at Sacramento’s Country Club Plaza, according to a representative from a real estate firm that is a partner in the mall.
In December 2014, the newly built Studio Movie Grill in Rocklin became the Sacramento region’s first daily-run movie theater to offer in-theater dining and alcohol. In April, the Esquire Imax became Sacramento’s first daily movie house to serve beer and wine.
I visited the Esquire Imax last week, sampling its beer selections and newly enhanced food menu. Look for my report on it in Sunday’s Feast section, or online Saturday at sacbee.com.
