No movie night is complete without good food. Continuing its collaboration with BaseHall, you’ll be able to dine on a diverse selection of vendors from the multi-concept food hall including Bengal Brothers, Co Thanh, Wow Burger, Smoke & Barrell, Mashi no Mashi and more. Be sure to keep an eye out on The Grounds’ social media channels for news on exclusive, limited-time menus.
