The newly remodeled Marcus North Shore Cinema in Mequon, Wisconsin features a Zaffiro's Pizzeria and Bar that serves theater patrons as well as non-theater customers. Serving a lineup of thin-crust pizzas, sandwiches, and other items made from fresh ingredients, the first theater-based location was one of the signature elements of the Marcus Majestic Cinema in Waukesha, Wisconsin, about 30 miles to the Southwest.
According to a recent article in the Milwaukee Business Journal, Marcus Corp. is planning to expand the number of Zaffiro's locations in Milwaukee, both in their theaters and as standalone locations:
Marcus plans to expand Zaffiro's throughout the Milwaukee area, including other movie theater locations. David Marcus is managing partner of Marcus Investments, which is owned by members of the Marcus family. North Shore Cinema is owned by Marcus Theatres Corp., the area's largest theater circuit. Marcus Theatres is part of Marcus Corp., a publicly traded company founded by the Marcus family, and led by Chairman Stephen Marcus, David's father, and Chief Executive Officer Gregory Marcus, David's brother.
David Marcus also plans to expand Zaffiro's to locations that aren't part of the Marcus Theatres circuit. He says people will be attracted by Zaffiro's lineup of pizzas, sandwiches and other items made from fresh ingredients, and by the pizza's signature thin crust. Those differences will help Zaffiro's stand out in a restaurant segment packed with large chains such as Pizza Hut, Papa John's and other familiar names.

I'm not a big fan of thin-crust pizza myself, but I know that many people are, and any effort by theaters to expand beyond the traditional servings of soda and popcorn are welcome in my book!
