Who wouldn’t want to eat nachos, drink a cocktail all while watching your favorite flick? Celebrities and influencers gathered November 3rd to celebrate the opening of the Box Office Bar and Grill at the MGN Five Star Cinema in Glendale, California.
The 10-theatre complex is a dine in, full service experience. With Thanksgiving around the corner, the Box Office Bar and Grill partnered with the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank and asked all guests to bring non-perishable goods.
Celebs arrived at the restaurant and were extremely enthusiastic about donating what they brought. Throughout the evening Executive Chef, Abraham Isseks, originally from New York City, sampled items on the menu such as NY style meatballs, Fried Guacamole, Buffalo Chicken, and the show stopping New England Lobster Rolls.
The venue was full of some of the world’s hottest social media influencers from Lexy Panterra and Twan Kuyper to Jason Nash and Innana Sarkis. Among the guests were All-4-One and Kelly Hu who were having a great time as they walked the carpet, donated canned items and joined the rest of the guests for a 10:00 showing of Doctor Strange. Other celebrity guests such as Billy Zane, Lauren Makk of ABC’s FABLife, and Tanya Memme of Hallmarks Home and Family were all smiles as they spoke about the LA Food Bank and how important it is for them to give back. The Box Office Bar and Grill is honored and thankful that the guests enjoyed themselves and look forward to being a prominent part of the Glendale area.
