Marcus Theatres has announced that the UltraScreen installation at the Marcus Cinema Pickerington in Pickerington, Ohio will be open for business on Friday, December 21, 2007. This 400-screen auditorium will be Marcus' eleventh UltraScreen, which is their label for an installation which includes a screen 70+ feet wide and other amenities.
The first movie to play in the new UltraScreen will be "National Treasure: Book of Secrets."
"Pickerington moviegoers will experience the magic of the movies on a screen that is almost three-stories tall and three-times wider than the typical movie screen," said Bruce J. Olson, president of Marcus Theatres®. "Audiences will see the latest Hollywood blockbusters with unbelievably cutting-edge, crystal clear, sharp images on a gigantic screen. The UltraScreen takes moviegoing to a totally new level of excitement and entertainment that can never be experienced at home," said Olson.
"Not only will audiences be able to see the latest Hollywood movies in sharp, bright detail, they will also be able to hear movies as they have never heard them before. A remarkable state-of-the-art digital sound system will be an impressive feature of the new UltraScreen for the most incredibly lifelike and dynamic digital sound possible. The new sound system features Crown International’s innovative Digital B-Chain™ and JBL Professional’s Academy Award® winning ScreenArray® cinema system. Marcus Theatres has brought these systems together to create a cinema audio experience that is the first of its kind at any theatre in North America," added Olson.
"The UltraScreen will stretch from wall-to-wall and will completely engage audiences in the moviegoing experience. Sink into our comfortable memory foam seats or doublewide Love Seats, stretch your legs in the wide space between rows and watch the best movies Hollywood has to offer. Moviegoers from throughout the Pickerington and southeast Columbus areas will now be able to discover the magical moviegoing experience provided by our UltraScreen," said Olson.
According to the Marcus Theatres press release, other UltraScreens are located at:
- Marcus Majestic - Waukesha, WI

I posted the original announcement of this addition back on August 30, 2006, where Marcus stated that the UltraScreen would be opening in May 2007. No reason for the delay was given in the press release.
Marcus Theatres owns and operates 50 locations in Wisconsin, Illinois, Minnesota, Ohio, North Dakota, and Iowa.
