The Sacramento region’s second dine-in multiplex theater will open on Friday, Nov. 18 in Folsom, according to Gloria Caballero of Petaluma-based theater chain Cinema West.

The six-screen Palladio LUXE Cinema, which sits next to Palladio 16 Cinema at 400 Palladio Parkway, will offer in-seat food and cocktail service. The seats will be adjustable recliners.

The theater will hold a lounge area where people can grab a pre- or post-show bite or drink. Entry to the lounge does not require purchase of a movie ticket.

Cinema West also owns Palladio 16 Cinema and is in the process of turning Woodland’s historic State Theatre into a dine-in multiplex.

The dine-in theater trend, popularized by Texas-based Alamo Drafthouse theater chain, took a while to reach the Sacramento region. The region’s first daily-show dine-in movie theater, Rocklin’s Studio Movie Grill, opened in late 2014.
