MILWAUKEE —Marcus Theatres will open its new concept BistroPlex adjacent to Southridge Mall at 9 a.m. June 30.

BistroPlex offers a food-first approach and will include eight in-theater dining auditoriums at 5210 S. 76th St. in Greendale, plus a separate, full-service bar and lounge area.

“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,” said Rolando Rodriguez, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Marcus Theatres, in a statement.

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, in a statement. “We look forward to working with Marcus Theatres to create a great shopping, dining and entertainment experience for visitors from throughout the Milwaukee area.”
