Dinner and a movie dons a new meaning at Bear Tooth Theaterpub and Grill with their fine and screenside dining.

There are two sides to Bear Tooth: the theaterpub and the grill. The theater-pub hybrid holds a single screen with tables and chairs in place of the rows, and instead of a concession stand popping popcorn, they have a kitchen to prepare pub-style meals. Any food that you order from the pub is delivered to you, so you don’t have to divert your eyes from the screen. Similarly, stationed in the back of the theater is a bar for you to run back and grab another Bear Scratch Margarita without missing the movie.

But what about the food? If you ask a local what they usually get at the Bear Tooth Theaterpub, most will tell you one of their various pizzas, like the Veggie Delight or the High Protein Land, complete with Canadian bacon and Italian sausage. Others might point your attention to the various tacos and burritos.

Also in the building is the Bear Tooth Grill, where you can dine without the cinema or sip on a cocktail prior to the movie. The macadamia crusted halibut is well-reviewed, as is their blackened ahi. Brunch items, like the chicken fried steak topped with eggs and gravy, is another local favorite.

To sweeten the experience, Bear Tooth also offers cheaper than average ticket prices.
