Movie Tavern opens Denham Springs theater _lowres


Dinner and a movie is now possible in one space in Denham Springs.

Movie Tavern opened its third and largest cinema-eatery in Louisiana last week at Juban Crossing with a 46,000-square-foot theater, which features a full bar and recliners throughout 11 auditoriums, a news release said.

“Denham Springs and the surrounding area is the ideal community for the Movie Tavern experience,” said Vice President of Marketing Danny DiGiacomo. “As our brand expands, our primary focus remains to consistently provide an enjoyable, dine-in movie-going experience for our guests.”

In addition to expanding into new markets, Movie Tavern is also revitalizing existing locations in order to showcase the company’s new and improved full service experience. Juban Crossing marks the third theater Movie Tavern has unveiled to the public in 2016.

The theater includes a casual-dining menu with a wide range of entrees, appetizers and food items made mostly from scratch, including healthy and reduced-gluten options, the release said.

Founded in 2001, Dallas-based Movie Tavern has 23 theaters and 200 digital screens in nine states. In September 2013, Movie Tavern was acquired by New Orleans-based VSS-Southern Theatres LLC.
