The seats at Thornton Place cinemas are extremely comfortable—with your choice of 14 movies, a postprandial stupor in the dark there is a deeply enjoyable thing. For your stomach's consideration, two good, fast, and cheap options are within waddling distance: sparkling new conveyor-belt Tengu Sushi, where you can stuff yourself on $1 to $4 plates in 20 minutes flat; and Five Guys Burgers and Fries, a vaunted franchise out of Virginia where grilled onions and mushrooms are always free. Life is sweet. (Thornton Place, 301 NE 103rd St, see Movie Times: thestranger .com/film; Tengu Sushi, 311 NE 103rd St, 525-9999; Five Guys Burgers and Fries, 311 NE 103rd St, 729-5028.)
