Screening out usual film fare 

Dinner theater takes on a whole new meaning at Muvico Pointe 21 theaters (2100 International Drive, 352-3573). The snack bars offer much more than just popcorn, sodas and candy. In fact, there's enough food to qualify for dinner. What's more, here you don't have to sneak it into the theater.

Try the 7-inch pepperoni pizza ($5) or the nachos grande topped with veggies, guacamole and sour cream ($5.75). In the bakery, look for jumbo cookies baked on the premises; they're $1.50 each, filled with Hershey chocolate chips, Mounds bars or Skor candies, and still warm from the oven. You also can order cherry or blueberry cheesecake ($2.75).

And if all that eating makes you sluggish, stay awake through the end of the movie with the help of a cappuccino ($2.50) or espresso ($1.50).
