What A Deal!
Posted by:  Katherine Dean

Listen up Atlanta 'cause I'm only gonna say this once. Buckhead Fork & Screen (formerly Buckhead Backlot) is showing movies for $5. No, they aren't the crappy movies that have been out in the theaters for months. No, that price isn't for matinees only. And finally, no, you do not have to join some ridiculous movie-goers club and add another piece of plastic to your keychain in order to get the discount. All day Monday through Thursday and before 4:00 PM Friday through Sunday (and holidays), $5 scores you a plush seat at the most recent box office hit. What makes the deal even sweeter, though, is that, as the name implies, Fork & Screen offers table service. That's right: you can order a burger and a beer while you take in the show. To be fair, the food isn't stellar and service can be a little spotty. Plus, for the easily distracted, having servers pop in and out of important scenes can be a bit off-putting. But hey, you can sit on your lazy ass, not missing a minute of the flick, while someone else fetches your box of Milk Duds, bucket of popcorn and pitcher of Sweetwater 420. For only $5 admission, that's pretty hard to beat.
