Prepare to stretch out -- with your kids -- at Wehrenberg Theatres. The St. Louis-based theatre chain has rolled out Suite Seats at the St. Charles Stadium 18 Cine.
Suite Seats are the same chairs that Wehrenberg uses in its Five Star Lounges. Each seat is heated and has an electric foot rest and a table. Couples seating is available. Unlike the Five Star Lounges, however, there is no wait staff in a Suite Seat theater, and Suite Seats are for all ages. Wehrenberg has been showing "Maleficent" and "How to Train Your Dragon 2" in Suite Seat theaters.
"We feel this is the future of movie-going," said Kelly Hoskins, vice president of marketing for Wehrenberg Theatres. Hoskins said Suite Seats are more comfortable than watching movies at home. Look for more Suite Seats in other Wehrenberg Theatres. "Plans have not been finalized, but we will be investing heavily in this concept," she said.
Suite Seat tickets are $1.50 more than standard movie tickets at St. Charles Stadium 18 Cine.St. Charles Stadium 18 Cine is at 1830 S. First Capitol Drive, St. Charles, MO, 63303.
