Food, fun and's a vibe

Mainzer stands proudly in the center of downtown Merced and has for many decades. Renovated to the highest of standards, Mainzer flawlessly blends architectural features with today’s amenities that are essential for your 21st-century celebrations. Highlighted by a full restaurant, bar, and seasonal beer wall it’s the perfect place to eat, drink and be merry. The gameroom, cinema and theater make the experience complete with live music, movies and the big game on the big screen. Follow that up with a competitive game of skeeball, ping pong or foosball and this total package makes Mainzer the place to be with friends and to meet new ones. When the night is over, stay the night at our sister property El Capitan Hotel. Special rates apply.

We are not your ordinary movie theater­-far from it.  Think of our boutique theater and viewing space as one part living room, a one-part screening room. With comfortable loungers, sofas, and recliners, your experience will feel like home, but oh-so-much better.  

Whether visiting us to see a movie, live stream, or themed watch party, we’ve got you covered with pour-your-own taps and an approachable locally sourced menu.  All you need is yourself, your family or friends and your tickets.

Go out for drinks and slay your friends at skeeball. Hit the game room for a breathless round of ping pong, and then see who’ll take you on at dominoes. Nerd out on a game of Risk, sort through stacks of board games, or settle in at a custom Trivial Pursuit table—there’s room for friendly competition and a cold beer.

All that strategy and brainpower take fuel. Our full service restaurant team can take your order game side so you’ll never miss a turn. Spend the afternoon (we don’t mind) and pair your beers and boards for a different experience every time.
