Outdoor dining and reservations required/recommended.
Vaguely Vegas-like with its gilded-plaster facade, this 22-screen venue offers first-run fare, screened in both intimate theaters and huge auditoriums, complete with optional luxury seating and bar access.
CP REVIEW: This warm, welcoming, and satisfying Italian restaurant is a reason to brave the West End Circle. The menu offers variety within a few narrowly constrained categories: antipasti, pizza and pasta, with the pasta section organized around seven noodle shapes, from capelli to rigatoni, each paired with three or four distinct sauces.

CP REVIEW: This lively family-style BBQ venue hews closely to tradition. The smoked meats (ribs, brisket, pork shoulder and chicken) are “dry” (with sauces at table), and the sides are well-prepared classics: mac-and-cheese, baked beans, collard greens and coleslaw. Prices are higher than a roadside stand, but the quality is top-notch. [May 2, 2012]
As the name suggests, two screens show double-features of popular summer fare, with plenty of family films and action flicks.
This often-overlooked gem features 5,000 relics of Catholic saints from complete skulls down to tiny bones. An attached gift shop/museum closed on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday features the thrown-away crutches of those said to have been healed here. A tour guide is available each Sunday; groups require reservations.
CP REVIEW: This breakfast and lunch cafe offers updated breakfast standards, such as pumpkin-walnut pancakes and the "veggie overload omelet," as well as sandwiches and salads, and sweet and savory crepes. Kid-friendly, vegan-friendly, everything-friendly, plus outdoor seating in season. [July 2007]
