Dinner and a Movie in Rome A mature twist on an awkward classic

Ahh, the dinner and movie date, an American classic for young people across the country. Braces-laden kisses, awkwardly leaning over the seat divider to get a bit closer to your sweetheart...

We're a little older now. So what if we made the dinner and movie date cool again? An awkward social classic with a mature spin.

Take your husband or wife to a nice dinner at The Savoy, grab a cocktail, then enjoy the show at The Capitol Theater? Or maybe it's a movie at The Capitol with friends and a trip to Copper City Brewing?

This can be a once a month/once a week offer to residents. A free pint? Maybe 10% off of your meal? Local establishments can give incentives that people want upon showing their Capitol Theater movie ticket. We can market this in a cheap, fun, creative way, not just to Rome but to Utica and surrounding communities.

Make it about a fun night out. Make it about supporting vendors in Rome. Make it about enjoying the city's uniquely comfortable downtown.

Dinner and a movie made cool, in a way only Rome knows how.
