MARCUS PALACE CINEMA
The Palace Cinema is a new ground-up cinema complex with 12 auditoriums and 2,000 seats. The complex features state-of-the-art cinema experiences with more amenities than ever before, including leather reclining seats in all 12 auditoriums, a Take Five Lounge (Marcus Theatres’ relatively new cocktail lounge concept) with indoor seating and a beautiful outdoor patio, Zaffiro’s Express Pizza, two Ultrascreen DLX auditoriums, and in-theatre dining in the Big Screen Bistro auditoriums.
This new cinema complex is located in a quickly developing area of one of Madison’s fastest growing suburbs. The impact on the community has been hugely positive. Analysts at Marcus spent seven or eight years planning the theatre to ensure not only its success for the Marcus, but its relevancy to the growing community of Sun Prairie.
The designers drew upon motifs from classic theatre design, while also taking into consideration the new and changing needs of moviegoers. In the advent of the home theatre, cinephiles are currently presented with the opportunity to relive the golden age of cinema in the comfort of their own homes. TK Architects kept this in mind and designed the space to deliver a complete experience for Marcus’ customers. In the lobby, attention to spatial transitions, fine quality millwork, and custom LED lighting create the illusion of a grand art deco theatre while also showing off new and exciting technology and design elements. By incorporating red leather recliners, in-theatre dining options, and state-of-the-art projection and sound systems, moviegoers are presented with the opportunity to have all of the comforts of home with added luxuries that only a Marcus Theatres destination experience can offer.
