The Guilt Trip, two-fold???

The Guilt TripThe Paramount marketing department were so certain that Barbra Streisand would gain a Golden Globe nomination for her performance, that not only did they put out an ad congratulating her victory, but posted it online moments before the nominations were announced, only to be swiftly pulled when Streisand ended up without the nod. So who’s on a guilt trip now?

? Oscar – Hello….Gorgeous??!

If you saw it, let us know what you thought of the movie and Streisand’s performance.  For those who have not see it, or want to enjoy it again, THE GUILT TRIP starts FRIDAY at Raleighwood!

We are looking forward to it – Streisand is usually good in comedic roles, and it should be nice to see her back on the big screen.

So eat, drink and watch a movie..no mess, no fuss for you at Raleighwood.

Check WEBSITE for showtimes, daily menu specials …  and a list of other movies now playing.

Seven Psycopaths

Seven PsychopathsSaw it…wierdly, we liked it!  A dark comedy for sure, not for the faint of heart.   Colin Farrell, Sam Rockwell, Christopher Walken, Woody Harrelson, Abbie Cornish, Olga Kurylenko. “Seven times more clever than most Hollywood violent comedies, and way more demented. A delightfully nuts, compulsively watchable film.”

Well worth seeing if you are fan of these types of movies or any of the actors in it.

WHO WAS YOUR FAVORITE PSYCOPATH?

We always love the semi-hidden references to other movies…did you see any? Let us know. We love to hear from movie fans, and fans of Raleighwood alike.

Check RaleighwoodMovies website for other movies and showtimes, plus our upcoming Special Events; and daily menu specials.

“Gluten Free” menu items

Spoke to a customer last night who is highly Gluten Sensitive, and cannot eat many restaurant menu items..and he let me know that Raleighwood DOES have menu items he can enjoy!  These are some of the suggestions he had – and some of the reasons.

Hot or Barbeque Wings, Chips and Salsa, Classic or Ultimate Nachos, Steak Fries, Cheese Fries, Grilled chicken or Tuna sandwich platters (NO buns); and of course salads.

Our Wings are not breaded, and are cooked in separate oil and in separate fryer, as are the fries, from any items that have breading…so they should be safe.

Chips are corn, not flour. The grill does not have any breaded items that are cooked on it, so the grilled chicken items (and the tuna) are generally ok.  Cajun spice is also ok.

Staying away from Gluten? Raleighwood does have some great menu items that you can enjoy.  Of course, we cannot guarantee or claim totally Gluten-Free, since there are strict guidelines, and each person should know his or her own sensitivity levels.

So come on out enjoy a movie and one of our menu items.  Let us know if you know if other items on our menu fit the bill!

And a BIG Thanks to our customer Steve W and his wife for their help and information.

Check Raleighwood website for Movie listings and showtimes, and to view menu and daily specials.

Amazing Spiderman trivia

Saw it yesterday, really a good version.  For those of you who like movie facts and idiosyncrasies – the director’s name is Marc WEBB!

Stan Lee makes a cameo – see if you can spot him.  For those who don’t know – Stan Lee is the creator of Spiderman (with a little help) and  comic book mega-star writer.

There are quite a few other really “cute” moments, I liked the more creative approach to Spiderman’s talents.  I don’t want to ruin the movie by going into too much detail.  The way he evolves his costume had us doing an “ahhhhhaa”

Would love to hear your comments on this movie, odd and interesting things   you spotted, and whether you like this or the older Spiderman better.

Check RALEIGHWOOD website for Spiderman and other movie showtimes and daily specials.

Beat the Heat…AC, Movies and Ice Cream!

The temperature’s rising…..we’re havin’ a heat wave! It’s too hot be outside. Beat the Heat, take yourself and the kids to a movie in an air-conditioned theater, for lunch or dinner and a movie… plus take advantage of today’s Raleighwood menu special Thursday – 99¢ Cinderella Ice Cream Sundae with each entrée order.

Did you know  air conditioning was born in 1902 when Willis Carrier, a mechanical engineer, developed and installed the first system in a publishing company in Brooklyn, New York. Carrier’s invention would eventually have a revolutionary impact on America.

The opening of the Rivoli in NY was widely advertised for its refrigerating/ air conditioning system. People lined up at the box office – curious about ‘cool comfort’ .  Through the 1950’s movie theaters advertised Air Conditioned right up with the movies on the marquee.

A great option for a blistering hot day – relax and enjoy a movie and a meal at Raleighwood!

Pizza fun facts

  Did you know that 36 percent of all pizza ordered are topped with pepperoni?!  Americans eat approximately 100 acres of pizza a day or about 350 slices per second.  Pizza can be called a balance meal, it has most of  the food groups – grains in the crust, vegetables or meat  put on as a topping, dairy in the cheese, and fruit in the tomato sauce.

Pizza is also one of the favorite foods to eat while watching a movie, it ranks right up there with popcorn.

Share a pizza at an afternoon family matinée, a perfect for lunch or an early dinner.  Sit back, relax, enjoy the movie and let us do the work.  A great way to take the kids to a movie.  Or get a group together and come to our early or later evening shows.

Today’s menu special at Raleighwood Cinema Grill is $3 Off all Large Pizzas. Enjoy a pizza, a pitcher (beer or soda), and a picture – check website for scheduled movies and show times.
