If you really want to do something different with a group of friends or on a date night, please go to the Commodore! This place is a throwback in time in such a classy way. The theater is beautiful and well maintained. This place, to me, puts the newer theater/dining establishments to shame. While not as fancy, you can still get decent food (not gourmet) at tables with small lamps and your chairs move! It’s a very cool set-up.
If you have kids, it is well worth taking them to a place like this to show them how classy things used to be.

Fully restored historic landmark of 1920's art deco decor. Most pieces are original.
Order, dine and watch a movie on the real big screen 20' by 40' screen.
Vegetarian options on the menu. Adult beverages served as well as hot and cold desserts. Walls adorned with hand painted murals.
Chairs are soft and rotating.
Hints: Tickets are $10, but $9 if you pay in cash. Parking is easy around the corner by the church. Tesla car charger while you watch. Full THX Dolby sound.
Downside - tickets sold day of the show. Get there well before 6 p.m. Website has movies and times. Not the place for children under seven or nine.

It’s a great place to enjoy a meal and watch a movie. Get there early so you can order and have you meal before the movie starts. They choose great movies and have an amazing sound system. All the makings of a really fun experience. If you have time you can park in Norfolk and take the ferry to the base of High Street. It’s a nice stroll from there.

I never seen that theather its amazing, and they have to dinner right there (but you have be a little early to have place) if you don't, you enjoy the movie in the 2nd level. But its really great.

Walking through the front door is an experience in itself. Once inside the Decor takes you on a trip through time. The Classic “Dinner and a Movie”... Family Friendly Too!!
