Downtown Dinner and Movie: What to Order

October 30, 2017

How far can $10 get you? It'll get you pretty far this Friday ... through a program organized by the Office of Community Relations. 

On Friday, downtown businesses will welcome students as part of  'Downtown Dinner and Movie Night,' where students can get dinner at one of the participating restaurants and see a movie at the Iron Horse Bistro for $10! With options such as Posh, Thai Thai Scranton, and Backyard Ale House, it's sure to be a delicious night.

The event is a great way for students to explore the downtown eateries and connect with Scranton's small businesses. 

"As far as what Downtown Movie Night means to us, we love participating because every year it seems more and more students are finding us and falling in love with our New American Vegan Comfort Food," said Christian Pilosi, owner of Eden: A Vegan Cafe. 

But with so many great choices on the menu, what should you order? We paired up with some of our favorite downtown restaurants to find the most popular item on the menu!
