Creve Coeur, MO (KSDK) - Movie chain AMC Theatres is bringing a unique film-going experience to the St. Louis area beginning in 2013 by combining the "dinner and a movie" date night concept.
The AMC West Olive 16 is being converted into a new "Dine-In Theatre," offering patrons appetizers, dinner entrees and desserts, including alcoholic beverages, all while seated in specialized 'Cinema Suites' or 'Fork & Screen' theatres. These theatres offer either seat-side service on swivel tables or booth service.
AMC operates 9 Dine-In Theatres at present. The AMC West Olive 16 is one of two new Dine-In Theatres opening soon in the country.
According to AMC Theatres, the Dine-In movie houses offer specific age restrictions: Cinema Suites are open to guests 21 and over; Fork & Screen theatres are available to guests 18 or over, or minors accompanied by an adult.
Because this new Dine-In Theatre will have the capabilities of a full-scale restaurant and move house, AMC is hiring hundreds of workers to fill much needed positions like bartender, busser, cook, dishwasher, film crew and waiter.

The AMC West Olive 16 Dine-In Theatre is expected to be fully ready and open to the public in the coming months.
AMC Theatres is headquartered in Kansas City, Missouri, but will move across the state line to Johnson County, Kansas in 2013.
Earlier this year, AMC was acquired by the Wanda Group, a privately-owned company based in Dalian, China specializing in entertainment, hotels, and real estate and tourism businesses.
