Dinner and a Movie was a cooking and entertainment television program produced in the U.S. by TBS from 1995 to 2011.

Each episode included a movie and the preparation of a creative dinner to go with the theme of the movie, generally via a pun. For example, an episode showing Drumline features a recipe titled "The Beets Go On", referencing the Sonny & Cher single "The Beat Goes On", as well as the plot of the movie about a drummer who tries to fit in with a new marching band.

The show was hosted by chef Claud Mann and comedian Paul Gilmartin as well as Annabelle Gurwitch from 1996-2002, Lisa Kushell from 2002-2005 and Janet Varney from 2005 to the show's end in 2011.

The show's cancellation was announced by Gilmartin on the May 6 edition of his podcast, The Mental Illness Happy Hour.
