Medieval Times isn’t just for dinner anymore. The live action dinner theater is jousting its way to movie theaters. Production companies Benderspink and Broken Road have partnered to forge a deal for rights to the franchise. I want to laugh, but crazier things have worked. Given the popularity of the fantasy genre on screen right now, they could easily take the name and make an epic movie. It could go the other way, too. If the worst case is another film like A Knight’s Tale I’d be okay with that.
The companies are putting together a package to take around studios. I can only hope that the pitch package is presented by knights in shining armor alongside chicken served without utensils.

Who cares about the menu when a restaurant and cafe is really just a massive display of film memorabilia? The food might be fantastic, but I’d go to CW Restaurant in Daegu, South Korea just to drool over the owner’s massive collection of statues, prop replicas, toys, and more. They all belong to Woong Cho. He decided to open the restaurant attached to a museum so he could share his collectibles and passion for movies with the world.
The restaurant houses everything from Star Wars memorabilia to Pixar (he has a custom Wall-E) to Disney to Harry Potter to Marvel. Yeah, it’s a geek’s dream. Frankly, it’s hard to wrap your head around how many items there are and how much it all must be worth.
Apparently, you can just go to the museum on the third floor for a $3 fee without eating at the restaurant downstairs.
Check out several images of the collection after the break.

Tim Harris has Down’s Syndrome, but that hasn’t stopped him from conquering his dreams. Tim is owner of “Tim’s Place” in Albuquerque, which is billed as “The World’s Friendliest Restaurant”.
