It didn't take the Marcus Theater people long to improve the movie-going experience in Cedar Rapids.

After acquiring the Wehrenberg Theater on Center Point Rd in 2017, the improvements began.

First came the luxury recliners know as DreamLoungers. Next it was heated seats and jumbo screens.

Now the movie theater has added casual dining and thin crust pizza to the menu of food choices that are prepared and made to be enjoyed inside the theater.

According to the Gazette, "the new dining options include Marcus Theatres’ Take Five Lounge, which serves casual dining fare and drinks, and Zaffiro’s Express, which serves thin-crust pizza."

It's sounds delicious, and combines two great ideas under one roof. Thanks to Marcus Theater, now a dinner and movie can be enjoyed together...at the same time! 

For the cheapskate in the crowd, the theater also has a $5 ticket special on Tuesdays which is a great price for a first run movie.
