20 Grand to be renamed ‘Majestic’ after remodel

WORLD-HERALD STAFF WRITER


Marcus Theatres has begun an extensive remodeling project at the 20 Grand Cinema, northeast of 144th Street and West Maple Road. When it’s done in early July, the theater will be renamed the Marcus Majestic Cinema.

The project includes replacing seats in all 20 auditoriums with DreamLounger electric recliners and adding extra leg room between rows. When renovations are finished, patrons will be able to reserve a specific seat in any auditorium.

Wider screens are being installed in some auditoriums, and interior walls will be recovered. The recliners already are installed in four auditoriums.

In addition, the new 70-seat Take Five Lounge will serve wine, beer and cocktails, which patrons can take with them to the movies.

A new concession area will include self-serve fountain drinks and feature Zaffiro’s Express, offering handmade thin pizzas, sandwiches, appetizers and more.

A baby grand piano will grace the lobby and lounge area.

The theater’s exterior also will get a fresh new look.

Marcus Cinemas, a 55-theater chain in the upper Midwest, has its headquarters in Milwaukee. President Bruce J. Olson said the theater’s new name fits the improvements.

“Majestic is not only a classic name for a movie palace but also perfectly describes the experience people will have coming here,” Olson said.

A Take Five Lounge opened earlier this year in Marcus’ Village Pointe Cinema in Omaha. AMC recently installed power recliners and added a lounge at its Bluffs 17 Cinema in Council Bluffs.

Other Omaha theaters serving alcohol include Marcus Midtown, Aksarben and Film Streams.
