Kerasotes Theatres announces the June 16 grand opening of its newest state of the art theatre in Naperville, Illinois located at the intersection of State Route 59 and 95th Street. The ShowPlace 16 brings “Movies with Magic” to the area, with industry leading theatre design and customer service. The newly designed Showplace 16 will be the company’s flagship. Soaring 82 feet above the ground, a striking vertical sign punctuates the exciting exterior architecture. All auditoriums feature TOTAL STADIUM SEATING on 18” risers for unobstructed viewing.

The high backed “Euro” style chairs, covered with plush velour fabric, have extra wide, fixed seat bottoms, reclining backs, and flip-up armrests. Wall to wall screens and digital sound systems are designed to optimize the viewer’s experience. Kerasotes Theatres’ team members receive specialized “Showservice” training to learn customer service skills. At the Guest Relations Center in the lobby, managers will be on duty to address any questions or concerns.

Louis and Nicholas Kerasotes, Gus’ sons, later led the business as Kerasotes Theatres grew to a regional company with 50 theatres by the mid 1960’s. Today Kerasotes is principally managed by third generation family, Tony and Dean Kerasotes, who have led the company’s aggressive growth since 1985. Several current projects highlight the company’s emphasis on the Chicago market. Two of the projects currently under construction, ShowPlace 12 at the Golf Mill Center in Niles and Showplace 14 in Cicero, will open in the fall of this year. Today, Kerasotes Showplace Theatres is the nation’s 7th largest exhibitor operating 79 theatres with 659 screens in Illinois, Indiana, Minnesota, Missouri, Iowa, and Ohio.
