Did you know they have a movie theatre at Florida Atlantic University (FAU) in Boca Raton? I sure didn’t. The other day I was in a new building there and saw all these marquee style signs with movies currently playing, and others to come. Although I never heard of most, they looked pretty interesting and indie style. So I went inside to take a look and even found they have a cafe that serves food and drink. When I saw they had a pizza on the menu, I just had to sit down and try it.
The Living Room cafe had a nice menu, with a bunch of choices that you wouldn’t expect to find in a movie theatre, let alone on a college campus. Besides the usual popcorn, candy, sodas, they had salad, sandwiches and actual dinner plates. You can download the menu here. The pizza was only $6.50 so it seemed it was worth checking out.
When my pie arrived, I was a bit surprised it was square and not round. I hadn’t expected a square pizza here. Although it was very crusty by the corners, it looked somewhat decent, and I waited a minute for it to cool down, and then took my first bite. It was hard for me to decide if their crust was par baked, but ultimately I am going to say they didn’t stretch it themselves.
The cheese tasted good, but the sauce wasn’t exactly wonderful. The crust was tasty but a little too well done, as you can see in the above photo. The crust was probably my favorite part of the pie though, since there was a nice charred taste to this almost burnt pizza.
The Living Room Movie Theater at FAU isn’t a place I would go out of my way again for pizza, but it is definitely a place I will go see a movie at. Considering the other choices on the campus of FAU in Boca Raton, for $6.50, I would much rather have this pizza than the Papa John’s Pizza they have on campus. For 2 slices of Papa John’s and a soda it is about the same price as this pie, and this pie tastes better. For those who are looking for a place to go enjoy a meal and go see an indie movie at a reasonable price, this Living Room theater seems perfect.
The Living Room Movie Theater at FAU gets 4 out of 8 slices.
