|Studios>> Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater
Another theme restaurant was added to the backlot annex area in 1991. This may be one of the most unusual restaurants anywhere. You enter a full size soundstage that has been transformed into an outdoor movie theater at night. Seating is in recreations of vintage 50's convertibles. Roller skating wait-staff will serve you while you watch trailers from classic horror and science fiction B-movies.
