Carmike Cinemas to Open Its Second Ovation Dining Club VIP Dining Experience
at the Grand Boulevard 10 Entertainment Complex in Sandestin, FL on March 29
- Boulevard 10 Brings the Theatre-Going Entertainment Experience to a Dramatic
New Level in Sandestin with the Ovation Dining Club -
COLUMBUS, Ga. & DESTIN, Fla. -- March 19, 2013
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
