RICHMOND, Va. — Cinebistro cinema at Stony Point Fashion Park announced a family friendly film series.

The cinema, which offers dining and beverage service in luxurious seating, is typically a 21 and over venue.

Now the cinema will offer families the opportunity to enjoy select films before 6 p.m. Guests under 21 are welcome to enjoy the films, but must be accompanied by a 21 and over parent or guardian.

A children’s menu will also be offered for these movies.

The family-friendly movies will be noted on their website and in their newsletters. Starting Friday, July 29, Ghostbusters and Star Trek: Beyond will be open to families, before 6 p.m.

According to a representative, the Miami location has successfully operated this series for years.

However, on the Facebook page for Cinebistro at Stony Point, fans expressed disappointment.

Many were unhappy about the decision and said they view movies at Cinebistro as a retreat away from children.
