Cinema Cafe does not offer birthday party packages or reservations, but we do have some suggestions to help you have a successful birthday celebration at one of our locations.
Instead of being restricted to the same food & drink for everyone, only at certain show times for certain movies and at limited locations, you now have the flexibility to celebrate your birthday at any Cinema Cafe location, any movie, any day, any time. No package needed.
Step One: Find a movie.
Check here (CinemaCafe.com) for what movies are playing, where, and when. Movies and show times are updated for the coming week (Friday to Thursday) every Wednesday.
Step Two: Pre-purchase your tickets.
We recommend purchasing your tickets in advance, if possible, at CinemaCafe.com or at the Cinema Cafe box office.
Step Three: Plan your meal ahead.
Recommended meal options for parties are: Kids Meals which are reasonably priced and include entree, side, & soft drink; or the Pizza Combo which is perfect for sharing as it includes a large one-topping pizza, pitcher of soft drink, and large popcorn. See our full menu here. You are also welcome to bring your own birthday cake since we don't offer cake on our menu.
Step Four: Arrive early.
Seating is first come, first served (except at Edinburgh where there is reserved seating). On busy weekends and for popular movies, that can sometimes mean battling a crowd. Arriving early at least 45 minutes before show time for the best chance at getting seats together. Each location tries to open the theater for seating 30 minutes before show time, so you hopefully won't be waiting in line too long.
Early arrival also give you the most possible time to celebrate. We ask that you present your cake, trophies, etc before the movie starts, not after. The theater is dismissed directly after the movie ends, so please plan to have any "birthday time" wrapped up before the movie starts, including presents, cake presentation, and birthday song. If you'd like, the server can hold your cake and bring it out during the show, after you have eaten your meal.
Step Five: Enjoy the movie.
The hard part is done and wrapped up, all before the movie starts. You've ordered your meals, sung you song, and opened present. Now sit back, relax, and enjoy the show!
