COLUMBUS, Ga. & DESTIN, Fla. -- Carmike Cinemas, Inc. (NASDAQ: CKEC), a leading DIGITAL cinema and 3-D motion picture exhibitor, announced today that its state-of-the-art Boulevard 10 entertainment complex, set to open March 29th, will be home to the theatre circuit's second Ovation Dining Club, an upscale dining and movie-going experience that is the "dinner-and-a-movie" concept tweaked and enhanced for the 21st Century.
Located in Grand Boulevard at Sandestin, a beautifully landscaped retail center known for its high-end shopping and dining establishments, the Ovation Dining Club in the Boulevard 10 offers moviegoers a more intimate, sophisticated experience, replete with lush leather seating, swing around tables, a wall-to-wall movie screen, wide selection of premium beers and wine and a full-service restaurant experience.
Imagine immersing oneself in the latest Hollywood blockbuster while being served succulent dishes that range from a simple cheese plate of gruyere and brie with apple, dried and fresh fruit, compote, and toasted baguette; to seared bay scallops with grilled polenta, topped with micro greens and garnished with basil oil and red pepper drizzle; to a soy-glazed chicken breast wrapped in a tomato herb tortilla, with a sweet Asian sesame slaw, peppers, onion, garlic and carrots.
That is a long way from popcorn and candy. But then again, the Ovation Dining Club is for a different type of movie and dining experience. The luxury recliners and over-21 age policy create a perfect backdrop for a date night with that special someone. The drinks, appetizers, and dessert options make it a great spot for a girls' night out; and the time saved by doing dinner with a movie produce the perfect venue for after-work social gatherings.
It's a movie theatre. It's a restaurant. It is the premiere place to watch the future of film and experience the future of film-going, all while enjoying delicious appetizers, entrees, desserts and your favorite wines and beers brought right to your seat.
Join Carmike Cinemas and Grand Boulevard at Sandestin as they celebrate the grand opening of the Boulevard 10 and its crown jewel: the Ovation Dining Club.
