Thanks to home streaming services, attendance at American movie theaters is on the decline. But a first-of-its-kind luxury cinema opening next week in Carlsbad aims to buck the trend by operating as a farm-to-table restaurant and bar that also shows films. On Feb. 7, the Cinépolis Luxury Cinemas La Costa Town Square will host its grand opening at 3434 Via Mercato in Carlsbad. The 33,368-square-foot building, near the intersection of Rancho Santa Fe Road and La Costa Avenue, has a full-service bar and eight auditoriums ranging in size from 49 to 115 leather reclining seats, each equipped with a menu, tray table and call button for waiter service. But the big difference at the new Cinépolis is the kitchen, which is larger than that found in most full-size restaurants.
