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.
