Enticing people out of the house to watch movies is a lot easier when there’s also a chef-driven restaurant and full bar involved. Launched in mid-January by former location scout Tim Chung, Syndicated will program a wide variety of titles from recent indies to classics of every genre.

Located in a former warehouse in Brooklyn’s trendy Bushwick, the theater-restaurant was designed by Home Studios with a 1970s-inspired color palette and industrial vibe. The 50-seat cinema offers banquettes with tables for two, leather headrests and theater-quality sound and projection.

Eight kinds of popcorn seasoning are just the start of food options: also on the beer-friendly menu are bacon-butter meatballs and duck confit nachos. Taps for local craft brews from Empire, Ithaca and LIC Beer Project and custom movie-themed cocktails like the Airplane III should help liven up any screening, and desserts include caramel popcorn-topped chocolate budino and beer floats.

The Film Class series, which features a discussion after the screening, features “Adam’s Rib” on Feb. 16. In February, Super Bowl and “X-Files” viewing parties join a roster of vintage favorites like “Harold and Maude” and “Chasing Amy.”
