About the iconic theater: When the Garland Theatre opened in 1945, it was the the place to be seen and the place to see films. The theater was very forward for the time, with wide aisles and a cup holder in each reclining seat. A novel idea was the snack bar. Today the Garland is an icon with all that old style. Its well perserved, staying true to the era. You not only get to see the show, you also get to experience movie theater history with a retro cool style.The Garland is Spokane's only Independent Encore theater.
For those 21 & up 🍸
Bon Bon, a concession stand for adults. Today there's a VINTAGE COCKTAIL BAR at the Garland Theatre is called BON BON, and it's tagline boasts "tasty drinks and delicious treats." This mini-bar is nestled in the west side of the historic theater with the distinct repurposed signature-style of developer/artist Dan Spalding.
Think of BON BON as a concession stand for adults with a well appointed bar menu of classic cocktails with a contemporary twist. Fun film reel cocktail tables and a movie set-styled light fixture make this another creative addition in the Garland neighborhood. You can stop by for a drink or a bite thanks to an outsourcing deal with the local restaurants.
Keeping the former soda fountain feel, there are glass jars filled with old-time candy cigarettes, gumballs and Pez. The retro cool bar has been welcomed nicely to the neighborhood. ❤️
