Market Overview

June 30 Marks the Opening of BistroPlex℠ at Southridge Mall in Greendale, Wis.


, a division of The
Marcus Corporation
(NYSE:MCS), will open BistroPlex℠ to the
public at 9 a.m. on Friday, June 30. With a food first approach,
this new concept features eight in-theatre dining auditoriums at 5210 S
76th Street in Greendale, Wisconsin (adjacent to Southridge
Mall), plus a separate, full-service bar and lounge area.

"For those that like a little drama, comedy or suspense with their meal,
BistroPlex is sure to deliver," said Rolando Rodriguez, chairman,
president and chief executive officer of Marcus Theatres. "BistroPlex provides
culinary creations with a local flair, including gourmet smash burgers
with entertaining names such as the Greek Goddess, Hollywood Heat and
The Italian Job. There's also a complete menu of cocktails, pizza,
sandwiches, entrees, salads, appetizers and desserts – all of which are
delivered to guests by our friendly in-auditorium wait staff. At this
new venue, guests will go for the food and stay for the movie."

Each auditorium features comfortable DreamLounger℠ recliners that have a
side table to maximize the dining experience. The recliners can be
adjusted with a push of a button allowing guests to go from seated
upright while eating, to relaxing at a full recline during the movie. In
addition, two of the eight auditoriums offer Marcus Theatres' SuperScreen
DLX® experience, complete with heated DreamLounger seating,
oversized screens, and Dolby® Atmos®
multidimensional sound with speakers along the front, back, sides and
ceiling of the room.

"BistroPlex is a unique dining and entertainment concept for
shoppers to experience, and we are thrilled that this first-to-market
theatre is coming to Southridge Mall," said Mary Mokwa, general manager
of Southridge Mall. "We look forward to working with Marcus Theatres to
create a great shopping, dining and entertainment experience for
visitors from throughout the Milwaukee area."

BistroPlex is designed to create a new offering in Greendale and
the surrounding community. At BistroPlex, the emphasis is on
creating a dining and entertainment experience throughout the entire
building. Every auditorium will have in-theatre dining versus select
auditoriums offering this experience. In addition, even popular movie
theatre snacks such as popcorn, candy and soda will be available through
the wait staff, versus a traditional concession stand for that special

The culinary experience at BistroPlex continues in a separate bar
and lounge area, where guests can mingle and dine on appetizers,
entrees, desserts, cocktails and more. Plus, there are all-day breakfast
items, some sandwich and salad standouts and a strong local connection
with the food and beverage featured on the menu. With a separate
entrance, patrons are not required to purchase a movie ticket to enter
and enjoy this portion of BistroPlex.

BistroPlex also provides a customizable group entertainment and
meeting option for birthday parties, group showings, in-auditorium
business meetings, team building and other events. Marcus Theatres'
events team works directly with groups or businesses to plan a
completely customized experience complete with a personalized food and
beverage menu tailored to the group's interests or event theme.

BistroPlex will be open to the public daily. For more information
