There are six Marcus Theatre locations in the Twin Cities playing mostly first-run movies. They also sometimes offer family-friendly entertainment and events and special offers. One thing that makes it a fun family moviegoing experience is the stadium seating at local theaters. With these comfy chairs, we are way more likely to make it through a movie without having someone land on my lap or need to go out for a walkabout mid-film. Some of the other latest amenities include digital sound, innovative food and beverage concepts, and 72-feet-wide UltraScreens. (I’m not sure exactly what I’m not sure exactly what “innovative food and beverage concepts” means, but the last time we went, they had adult beverages and mixed drinks available.)

Whether it’s a movie the whole family will enjoy or one that’s more for the kids (hey, it gives you a chance to kick back for 90 minutes!), the movies are a perfect escape. And, a trip the theatre doesn’t have to break the bank. Check out these value programs available at local theaters:

  • Value Tuesday: Every Tuesday, all movies are just $6-$7, plus Magical Movie Rewards program members* can get concessions discounts. Sorry, they no longer offer the free popcorn deal.

Marcus Theatres recently introduced Student Thursday at all of its locations. It’s a great option for a pre-weekend study break. Bonus: many of Hollywood’s biggest films have their premieres on Thursdays! How cool is that?!
