Whitefish Bay, WI: Fox Bay Theater in Whitefish Bay to Reopen with In-Theater Dining

Posted on Friday, January 16th, 1998. Last Updated on Thursday, June 30th, 2011 9:11 PM by Scott Jentsch

The Fox Bay theater in Whitefish Bay, Wisconsin may open again, with the addition of dinner with your movie. The Journal Sentinel is reporting that there are plans to convert the Fox Bay into a Cinema Grill:

James Young, who operates a Gloria Jean's Gourmet Coffees franchise at Southridge mall, plans to convert the Fox Bay, 316 E. Silver Spring Drive, into the Cinema Grill. It would be a combined movie theater/restaurant -- a concept that has been franchised in other parts of the country, Young said Thursday.

"You go in, and order your meal five or 10 minutes before the show," Young said. "And about 10 to 15 minutes into the show, the meal is delivered to your table. So you can eat, drink and watch your movie."

Young hopes to have the Cinema Grill operating by July. Renovations would begin in February once village and state officials approve the project, he said.

The project will be reviewed by the Whitefish Bay Plan Commission at its Tuesday meeting.

The Fox Bay location would be the first of up to four Cinema Grill franchises planned for the Milwaukee area, Young said. The other locations haven't been determined yet, and are being handled by Chicago-based brokerage Ascot Realty, he said.

Two additional screens will be added in the balcony area of the original screen, for a total of three screens.

The Fox Bay was opened in 1951 and last showed movies in 1992.
