First Look: Downtown's MX Movies Makes Dinner and a Movie Way Too Easy

"We're offering a complete experience. There aren't many places you can go and have a nice scallop dish while watching a movie," Jones says.
Those "Seared Viking Village Scallops ($15)" and red wine braised Illinois beef ($16) entrees make up the priciest portion of the menu alongside appetizers and sandwiches. The drink menu includes local draft beer, cocktails, spirits and wine. In-house made bloody marys feature a Midwest horseradish twist.
MX Movies tickets cost $12 for adults, $10 for students and seniors and $8 for matinees and children under 12. If you're looking for the theatre right now, you'll have to put in some effort. A thirty-foot sign is in the works, but for now, it still feels like a well-kept secret. Pro tip: figure out parking and showtimes ahead of time.
The MX Movies bar opens an hour before the day's first showtime.
