    Although it is a mouth full to say (we personally call it the “Biltmore 15”), we highly recommend this fabulous new state-of-the-art movie theater to our Asheville Vacation Home guests for a great place to enjoy movies that are close by.  The first with stadium seating in Asheville (we love that no one can block our view of the screen!), the Regal Cinemas Biltmore Grand Stadium 15 opened in November 2008 with 15 theaters & movies to choose from!  Conveniently located in Biltmore Park at the intersection of Interstate 26, Exit #37 and Long Shoals Road, this is an easy, drive-to location at the south edge of Asheville NC.  There is plenty of free parking in the various parking structures beside the theater. 

    You enter this 57,000 square foot complex with over 3,000 seating into a colorful and impressive lobby spacious enough to serve the audiences of a 15 theater complex.  Not only do you have the standard movie theater concessions of popcorn, candy, ice cream bites, soft drinks, etc., you can even select from a limited choice (Cheese or Pepperoni) of really tasty Freschetta pizzas.  If you decide to order one, allow an extra 6 minutes for the pizza to heat.  As you would expect from a classy new theater, there is high tech digital projection, the luxurious seats (they even rock!) are quite comfortable and the seat arms/cup holders can retract out of your way so you can sit closer to your sweetie!  Enjoy the movies!

    Our most favorite pizza in the whole wide world is served at this funky North Asheville NC restaurant & movie house that has been voted “Best Pizza In WNC” for 7 years in a row. Here you can watch $3 first run movies that are ready to leave the big screen.  Theater times are 1 PM, 4 PM, 7 PM and 10 PM.  This theater only seats 150 people, so with these prices it’s best to go way early, especially for the evening shows….better yet, buy your tickets the day before.

     

    In case you want to try our favorite highly recommended pizza, it’s the “Shear Delight” with a pesto base, portabella mushrooms, walnuts & gorgonzola cheese….be sure to request it on the poppy seed crust!  What can be better than to watch a big screen movie in comfortable chairs and eat a great meal–there’s a big selection to choose from, especially the pizza!   However, if you’re not in the mood for pizza, there is a large menu selection of unique & yummy appetizers, salads, sandwiches, quesadillas, pastas, and more!   If you want to experience their tasty food, but not quite up for a movie, they have a full restaurant and pub there as well.  Yes, a pub…I should mention this is also a micro-brewery serving 8 of their own specialty beers, from their most popular pale ale “Shiva” to the dark ales.  See ya at the movies!Asheville Pizza & Brewing Company, 675 Merrimon Avenue, Asheville  NC 28803.  828-254-1281.  Click on a picture to visit their website for more details.

    Genny spots the Cinebarre

    Genny spots the Cinebarre

    Review by Stephanie Joy Johnson & Robert A Bowles for our Asheville Vacation Home guests and visitors: www.AshevilleVacationHomes.com

    We live to eat yummy food AND watch $3 movies (and $1 on Sundays with a great Sunday Brunch menu served for movies starting no later than 2 PM).  We were thrilled when the Cinebarre Movie Theater Restaurant came to Asheville, NC meeting both these necessities of our lives!  How convenient (and a bit decadent) to have your theater usher take your food order at your seat and bring it to you while you watch your movie.  The seats are quite comfortable and there’s plenty of table room in front of you to spread out the goodies you’ve ordered. 

    I must confess that the whipped cream topped creamy coffee milkshakes (for Robert) and the mint chocolate milkshakes (for me) along with the fresh baked Braveheart 10” pizza (spinach, 4 cheese blend, sun dried tomatoes, artichoke hearts, roasted garlic, goat cheese & olive oil) & the Body Snatchers (crispy potato skins with peppered bacon, melted cheddar cheese and chives) has us looking what recent movies are showing at this theater so we can go just for the tasty food.  For the two of us, it ends up being about $30 dollars for this outing. 

    Beer and wines as well as a varied food menu are available to order before and during the first-run movies.   See their menu on line to get an idea of what is offered. The Cinebarre is located in Asheville at the back of the Biltmore Square Mall just off I-26 exit 33.  Click on a photo for their Website:  Phone: 828.665.8661  

    Ginny waits for the movie to start and for the food to arrive!

    You might also want to check on line with the theater’s policies regarding children.  Children under 6 are not allowed except for “Scream Tuesdays” when the first showing allows parents to bring their young ones (for free).  It’s fun, it’s tasty and we recommend it to local residents as well as our Asheville NC visitors staying at our luxury Asheville and Hendersonville vacation rental homes:  www.AshevilleVacationHomes.com 

    See ya at the movies!
