In order to host the ultimate movie night, a Netflix subscription isn't enough - a perfect menu is also key, preferably with each course relating to whatever movie is being viewed in some way. Unfortunately, this is harder than it sounds, especially if you're dealing with a film that has nothing to do with food, like West Side Story or The Lord of the Rings trilogy.

Luckily, this is exactly what Austin, Texas-based Alamo Drafthouse specializes in. The theater franchise has been especially key in pioneering the restaurant/cinema concept by ensuring that patrons are treated to a multi-course, impressive meal during a film showing - meaning, if you're looking for buttered popcorn or nachos, look elsewhere.

For those of us who can't make it down to Austin, though, our friends at First We Feast got in touch with the theater's concept chef Trish Eichelberger for some essential tips on how to create your very own perfect movie night menu - and they come complete with examples from the Alamo Drafthouse itself. To check them out, head on over to the link below:
