Dining News: What You'll Pay to Drink at the IMAX

The IMAX theater on K Street downtown now serves alcohol, reports Carla Meyer in the Sac Bee.

Moviegoers at downtown Sacramento’s Esquire Imax Theatre now can drink beer and wine while watching movies on a giant screen.

The Esquire will serve Ruhstaller 1881, Coors Light, Racer 5 and Blue Moon beers on tap and Woodbridge cabernet sauvignon and chardonnay, theater director Doug Link said. The theater also expanded its concessions menu to include pizza, chicken tenders, soup, salad and Morant’s sausages, along with a sausage “fixins bar,” Link said.

But much like their movie tickets, their drinks won't be cheap. Here's what you'll pay for the honor of sipping wine during the next flick you catch there.


At those prices, only those real die hards who need a $8.50 Coors Light to go with their viewing of Furious 7 will partake. For me, these ballpark beer prices tempt me to behave like a much younger version of myself and sneak a brew into the theater. We'll see if there's actually demand at those prices.

The IMAX theater is located at 1211 K Street, and can be found online at

Sacramento Shines at Pebble Beach Food & Wine - A few weeks ago I wrote about how we had a collection of Sacramento chefs going to the Pebble Beach Food & Wine Show. After a tiring weekend of nonstop events, we are all back home and the chefs are exhausted. Unfortunately my press pass was very limited in that I only got to go to the tasting events. No dinners, seminars, or cooking demonstrations. Also no after hours parties and that's where Bill Ngo and Michael Thiemann were.  Never did catch up with Ramon Perez or Ravin Patel. I did catch sight of Kelly McCown as he was leaving. He was done by Saturday afternoon and heading home. Therefore my coverage only extends to Meatopia on Friday and the Grand Tasting Tents on Saturday and Sunday. Catherine Enfield on Munchie Musings.
