The Sci-Fi Dine-In theater is stylized like a classic 50's drive in... indoors. Guests enter the Stage 14 movie set made to look like a Dine-In theater where they can sit in classic convertibles or picnic tables while watching a selection of campy Sci-Fi clips on the big screen.
Movie posters line the entry way as well as props of drive in movie speakers. Guests enter the seating area through a long dark hallway set up like a movie set. This sets up the reveal of the movie screen, trees, night sky and convertibles.
Food options include sandwiches, burgers, pasta and steak as well as a full bar.
Located to the right of The Writer's Stop on Commissary Lane
