Friday is the public grand opening for the new (formerly Mountlake 9) movie theater in Mountlake Terrace where you can dine and drink while you’re watching the movie. The films may be the same ones playing at other theaters but that’s about all that Cinebarre will have in common. Instead of the normal Pepsi commercials and blockbuster film previews, Cinebarre features short films from independent filmmakers during the pre-show so be sure to arrive 30-45 minutes before showtime.

You’ll be able to order food during most of the movie and here are a few tips that Cinebarre gives to make the process go smoothly:
* Write your menu choices on order form
* Place the order form in the metal bar so it is visible to your server
* Your server will only come by if they see your “flag”
* Order as often as you like until check is dropped (last call)
* Pay tab with cash or credit card when check is dropped
* If you enjoyed your service, please feel free to tip your wait staff

The following movies will be playing for Friday’s grand opening and you can buy advance tickets from Fandango.

  1. I went on Friday night (having only heard of it since Wednesday), and I was shocked by its awesomeness. I just hope it's financially viable enough to stay afloat there.

    • Yeah, I hope so too. With the tickets, a meal and drinks it’s will likely run you $60 or so for a date which might be a bit steep for people with the economy the way it is. Where some people may have come to Mountlake 9 every weekend for a movie, this will probably be more of a special occasion type thing. I’m guessing the new theater in Alderwood had taken a lot of business away from Mountlake 9 and may have been a reason for selling. Hopefully the fact that Cinebarre now has something to offer that differentiates itself, the customer base will actually be a larger geographic area and bring more people to Mountlake Terrace to spend money.

  6. I was having a chat with my dad the other day about the insanely awesome collection of posters all throughout Cinebarre. The idea came up that, if the place sticks around (fingers crossed), us locals should try to convince them to screen some older flicks during the relatively dead winter months when there aren't many big movies out. Personally, I can think of few things better than the chance to see greats like Evil Dead, Dr. No, and Forbidden Planet at a place like this. It seems like the greater Seattle area certainly has a high enough movie-buff-concentration for there to be plenty of interested moviegoers.

      • Hey guys, just an FYI, Cinnebarre is actually owned by regal. Ive been watching the remodel and cant wait to try it out!

  8. That would be cool if they played some old classics and, yes, hopefully they stick around and hopefully this is a sign that more new businesses will be coming to Mountlake Terrace.

  10. I realize this is an OLD post, but wanted to comment on it and 'bump' it in the blog… if you haven't been to 'Cinnebarre', you're missing out. For the NORMAL price of a movie ticket and an evening at the pub, you can combine them into one experience. I've done the Gold Class Cinemas… you know, the one with the big plush recliner seats, the extensive wine list, the snobby staff… it was fine, but I took out a 2nd mortgage to pay for the evening.Cinnebarre is different… it's just what you need: Good food, beer and wine, acceptable prices and good times.Give it a shot… we saw Harry Potter there, had a few drinks, some grub, a GIANT bowl of popcorn and only spent about $50 for the whole evening for two. I give it two hearty thumbs up!
