First Vegan Movie Theater

The world's first vegan movie theater is slated to start construction later this year in Fort Worth, Texas.

Amy McNutt, owner of the Spiral Diner and Bakery in Dallas and Fort Worth, has teamed up with her filmmaker husband to open The Citizen Theater, the first vegan movie theater in the world. Menu items at the twin-screen film house will include vegan options such as nachos, veggie dogs, and soft serve ice cream⎯even gourmet popcorn will be available for those desiring more traditional movie-going fare. Amy’s award-winning vegan baked goods from Spiral Diner will also be available. Scheduled to begin construction later this year, the theatre will strive to meet LEED standards, the internationally recognized green building certification system.
