Prepare to elevate your cinematic escapades to new heights as FoMo Cinemas unveils its groundbreaking concept in East Brunswick Village on Thursday, January 1.

Hailed as the next-generation of in-cinema dining experience and spearheaded by industry pioneers Natalie Miller and Barry Peak, the visionaries behind Cinema Nova, FoMo redefines the movie-going experience by fusing film, gourmet dining, and an avant-garde Blade Runner-inspired bar.

It’s definitely not your average cinema, with FoMo boasting six screens and offering a curated selection ranging from blockbuster hits to arthouse masterpieces and retro classics. Not only that, but guests will also treated to chef-designed pizzas, burgers, deli sandwiches, and an array of delectable desserts, all served amidst the neon-lit ambience of the Blade Runner-themed bar.

Co-founder Barry Peak, says of the new cinematic addition, “Natalie [Miller] and I have wanted to run a cinema that combines a movie with a meal for a long time.”

“When I’m in the US I love going to the Nighthawk, Alamo and Syndicated cinemas with their no-fuss dining at standard prices. Finally, technology allows that here, and FoMo is the result.”

”He adds, “Don’t miss the great pre-shows created by Ben Crocker, or the delicious diner food of our chef Darren Collier. PS: There’s no obligation to eat anything, but you’d be crazy to miss out.”

Like Alamo Drafthouse and Nitehawk Cinema, FoMO presents a pre-show spectacle devoid of traditional ads. Moviegoers can partake in trivia, interactive quizzes, and clips celebrating cinematic milestones while perusing the mouthwatering menu.

Additionally, iconic titles such as Blade Runner and Blade Runner 2049 will grace the screens.

Technologically advanced, two of FoMo's cinemas boast a 3D setup, and the grand 114-seat theatre flaunts a screen over ten meters in width, delivering a visual feast in stunning 4K resolution.
