Three properties also will receive a PLF screen — another popular amenity now at nearly 60 percent of locations throughout the company's circuit. The MegaScreen at Chesterfield will be transformed into an UltraScreen DLX ® auditorium, which features a massive screen, DreamLounger recliners and Dolby ® Atmos ® multidimensional sound with speakers along the front, back, sides and ceiling of the room. Cape West and Ronnie's Cines will each receive one SuperScreen DLX ® auditorium, complete with DreamLounger seating, oversized screens, and immersive Dolby ® Atmos ® sound. All PLF auditoriums will feature heated recliner seating, which can be turned on or off with the simple push of a button.In addition to auditorium renovations, unique food and beverage concepts at four locations will help broaden the traditional moviegoing experience and give guests new ways to enjoy a meal at the movies:
- Take Five Lounge¿ brings a casual dining, appetizer and beverage option to Marcus Theatres. Guests can relax over food and drinks before and after a movie, adding to their evening out at the theatre. Plus, beverages can be brought into auditoriums for customers to enjoy during the movie. Take Five Lounge additions are planned for Ronnie's, Cape West, Des Peres and O'Fallon Cines.
- Reel Sizzle ® is the newest food concept from Marcus Theatres. It serves up menu items inspired by classic Hollywood and the iconic diners of the 1950s. Americana fare like burgers, chicken tenders, crinkle cut fries with 'sizzle seasoning' and signature shakes, are prepared on a griddle behind the counter. Two Reel Sizzles are planned as part of these renovations - one at Ronnie's and one at O'Fallon Cine.
- Zaffiro's¿ Express is a concept that allows guests to place their order at a counter area for quick pick-up. Zaffiro's Express is known for its Thincredible ® handmade pizza, but also offers sandwiches, appetizers, desserts and other menu items. These can be enjoyed in the lobby or can be taken into the auditorium as a perfect meal with the movie. Based on an iconic award-winning Milwaukee pizzeria, Zaffiro's Express is coming soon to Cape West, Des Peres and Ronnie's Cines.
- Big Screen Bistros¿ offer full-service, in-theatre dining with a complete menu of entrees, appetizers, salads, sandwiches, desserts and drinks. Guests place their order with wait staff and their food and beverages will be delivered right to their seats. Des Peres Cine will feature three Big Screen Bistro auditoriums following completion of the remodel.
