Rotunda Anchor CinéBistro Premieres Tonight
The seven-screen CinéBistro movie theater and restaurant opens today as the starring feature of the $120M redeveloped Rotunda apartment and shopping complex in Hampden.
Instead of the usual popcorn and soft pretzels, CinéBistro offers a full food and drink menu similar to what you might find at a restaurant. Crab cakes, steak, calamari, and mac and cheese are among the menu items from chef Mark Davis. Guests arrive at least 30 minutes before a show to order food and drinks from a reclining leather seat. Each theater in the 33k SF complex seats between 70 and 100. It is the 11th CinéBistro from Cobb Theatres of Birmingham, Ala.
Another key tenant, MOM's Organic Market, opened a 17k SF store in April. Moby Dick House of Kabob and 18-8 Sushi will join the existing shops, which include Core Power Yoga, Floyd's 99 Barbershop, Starbucks and PetValu. Developer Hekemian & Co. has also built 379 luxury studios, one- and two-bedrooms on the site.
