[Press release from Cleveland Cinemas.]
Cleveland Cinemas has announced the titles for the second half of 2012 MELT BAR & GRILLED LATE SHIFT. The series continues to showcase a variety of popular films from the recent and distant past that have developed enthusiastic fans over the years. 
Starting in July, the MELT BAR & GRILLED LATE SHIFT will be expanding to a third location bringing cult classics to the Akron area with the addition of Plaza Cinemas at Chapel Hill (500 Howe Ave., Cuyahoga Falls). Films will continue to screen at the Cedar Lee Theatre (2163 Lee Rd., Cleveland Hts.) and theCapitol Theatre (1390 W. 65th St., Cleveland).
“Seeing these films on the big screen with an audience is an incredible experience,” says Dave Huffman, Cleveland Cinemas Director of Marketing and programmer of the MELT BAR & GRILLED LATE SHIFT. “In addition to showing the films, we’ll have fun raffle prizes and some special promotions to make this much more than just a typical night out at the movies.”

Some upcoming promotions include:  “Pay What You Weigh” for the film SEVEN (July 21, Capitol Theatre). In honor of one of the seven deadly sins, gluttony, attendees can hop on the scale and pay 2.5¢ per pound instead of the standard $5 admission.

About Melt Bar & Grilled
Melt opened in September 2006 with one goal: To provide gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches and as many beers as possible in a cool and comfortable environment. No bar food. No boring choices on tap. And something for everyone: it's Cleveland-friendly, slightly kitschy, and memorable. It's relaxing, energetic, and fun. The menu has many staples, but it's always changing. There's new stuff to look at, and new stuff to try. Which is why Melt has only one major recurring “problem"—it's busy all the time! And no wonder: Melt specializes in one thing, and one thing only: that original goal mentioned above. This explains the regulars, even those who'll drive an hour to be here. It's an entity—a family—not merely a restaurant. Actually, it’s more of an event.
Melt Bar & Grilled locations:
14718 Detroit Ave., Lakewood
13463 Cedar Rd., Cleveland Hts.
6700 Rockside Road, Independence

  1. RE: "Pay What You Weigh": Ironically, the only way you benefit from the $.025/lb promotion is if you can clock in under 200lbs. Tough indeed if you spend your time watching movies and hanging out at Melt! I'll just pay the $5, thanks.
