|Home: BigScreen Journal - Marblehead, MA: Warwick Place Cinemas Opens|
The Warwick Place Cinemas in Marblehead, Massachusetts last month, almost 14 years after the former Warwick Cinema closed. The building that housed that theater was demolished in 2011.
The new two-screen movie theater offers moviegoers a now-popular dine-in moviegoing experience, with restaurant fare available along with traditional movie theater concessions. The restaurant is run by John Palmer Ingalls, who also owns the Palmers Restaurant and Tavern in Andover. Menu items include Lobster Bruschetta, Chicken Fingers, Center Cut Grilled Filet Mignon, Marinated Pork Tenderloin, and more. It appears that the restaurant and a cafe are available to the general public as well, so you don't need to see a movie to enjoy their food.
Like the 1919 theater that came before it, the new theater still has two screens, but the seating has been reduced. The "stadium" room features luxurious leather seats, each with a pullout tray and service call button. The "screening" room is half the size, which the theater's web site says is suited to "smaller, limited events such as holiday films, sporting events, and group functions." According to the article in Wicked Local Marblehead (see below), the "stadium" room has a screen that measures 23' x 10' and the "screening" room's screen measures a small 15' 10" x 7'.
