We all know two things that work well together, food and movies. Alamo Drafthouse has taken this theory to the next level by constantly creating menus around certain film releases. They continue on with the highly anticipated ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY. First off the film looks awesome and the reviews coming in look inspiring. Alamo has created a special menu that features items like “Island Salad” which is based off one of the locations in the new film. Read all the details and check out the menus and drink specials ahead. Look for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story in Alamo Drafthouse theaters this weekend!

To celebrate the release of ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY, the Alamo Drafthouse has gone full Rebel, and its culinary team has dreamed up a slate of specials inspired by one of the most intriguing new locations introduced in the film, the sunny (yet rather sinister) beaches of the planet Scarif.

Tropical flavors abound in entrees like “Island Salad,” sliders with choice of fish or pulled pork, “Jerked Sweet Potatoes with Black Beans,” and “Shrimp & Avocado Toast” — all of which can be found for a limited time on a specially-designed commemorative menu, a die-cut schematic of the Death Star that Rebels can even take back to their home base.

“Seeing those Storm Troopers marching in the surf in the trailer was instant inspiration,” says Alamo Drafthouse Executive Chef, Brad Sorenson. “I mean, Storm Troopers on a beach?! Complete nerd out. So for this menu I knew I wanted to zero in on that new glimpse into the STAR WARS universe and have some fun with it, crafting sort of an island vacation menu packed with exotic flavors — although, clearly, it’s no vacation on Scarif for the Rebellion.”

Also on offer: A rogue’s gallery of delicious STAR WARS-inspired cocktails: the Ford’s Gin-centric “Ice Planet” and “Forest Moon,” and the creamy blended “Blue Milk Tropicale.”
