You know one of the toughest parts about going to a restaurant is not deciding how much to tip, but rather what you’re going to choose from the menu. Which is why it’s pretty common for people to ask the waiter for recommendations on what the most popular food is.
Let’s skip that step – I’m going to tell you right here!
If you want to dive right in and guarantee a good meal at their bistro, I’d highly recommend you start yourself off with the Pulled Pork Nachos. You just know if you see that on a menu, you almost have to order it.
Nachos not for you – what are you even doing with your life? But seriously, once you’ve taken a few bites out of their Margherita Flatbread, you’ll know you’ve made another good decision (on top of the one that you chose Cinemark).
Lighten up the movie-experience with a simple Caesar Salad if you’d like to keep that bounce in your step on the way out. It comes with romaine lettuce, croutons, shredded parmesan, and a nice dressing. Add in chicken or salmon for $3.00 if you like.
Unfortunately, you’ll be extremely hard pressed to find any coupons you can use in their bistro. Cinemark offers this premium selection of food as just that, a premium selection, so they’re trying to steer away from the coupon model of boosting sales.
If they do ever decide to send out a promotion, they’ll likely send it to their Movie Club Members first. At the moment, you can get 20% off concessions, and a few other benefits and perks for your movie-watching journey.

Yes, but not by much. It’s very difficult for a national theater chain in the states to serve the exact same menu at all of their locations. And with more an more opening up, such as their recent location in Boca Raton, it’ll be interesting to see how much the menu does change between them.
Putting it another way – the logistics involved in sourcing the ingredients and making the meals to the exact same specifications at all of their cinemas quite a difficult talk. Even for the third largest cinema chain in the country.
Take AMC for example, even their Dine-In Menu varies (but only a little) at each of their locations. As well, Cineplex, which serves up an up-market VIP menu to our Canadian friends has recently been striving to bring their menu together and in-line with the rest of their locations.
If you’d like a 100% accurate menu of the bistro menu at the Cinemark location you’re looking to go to, find the location in the table below, and contact that theater directly.
That depends on the kind of movie experience you’re after. If you’re more of a traditional person and are more than happy snacking on a tub of popcorn with a fountain drink at your side to wash it down, then probably – no, ordering from the bistro menu isn’t the right decision for you.
Psssst! You were thinking – Yep, that’s me! Then I think you’ll want to know how much their popcorn’s going to cost you…
On the other hand, if the sound of watching one of the latest blockbusters on the big screen, with a side of Salmon Style Street Tacos accompanied by a fine glass of wine get’s you all excited – you know what to do. Head down to your local Cinemark, check out their bistro and get ordering!

Surprisingly, it’s not completely clear when Cinemark actually started. Cinemark themselves claimed to have been established in 1984, but there are online records which show it may have been a bit earlier in 1977. That’s a question a bit above my pay grade! Either way, they’ve been around for a while, so they know how to provide a good cinema experience.
Today, they have over $3 billion in revenues and have cinemas in the US, South Americas, and even in Taiwan. Here’s a recent promotional video showing their expansion into Taiwan:
