The theatre is in the same building as '50s diner Peggy Sue's, which is open late, so I went there after the show. I can't recommend it. Overcooked, flavorless burger; chili cheese fries tasted mostly of the beans.

The theatre has a full bar with snacks - cookies, mini-cheesecakes; I had a Brie plate that wasn't abusively priced at six dollars. Not really anything to make a meal of.
