B&B Theatres opens new cinema in Wildwood, MO
WILDWOOD, MO — B&B Theatres opened the latest addition to its growing chain of theaters in this outer suburb, about thirty miles west of Saint Louis, on October 1. B&B is calling the new Wildwood 10 the flagship of its operations; the theater boasts all-digital projection and two suites for those over 21. There are no projection booths and no boxoffice; ticketing occurs at concession registers. The largest screen is fifty-four feet in width.
The theater’s unique, adults-only Marquee Suites feature reclining leather chairs with foot rests and marble side tables to accommodate its concessions, which include mixed drinks and hot foods such as flat-bread pizzas from the nearby Table Three restaurant.
Bagby hopes the theaters will become a community social hub on the newly developed Main Street in Wildwood. She said her family is bullish on presenting movies in theaters, which have traditionally thrived when the rest of the economy has suffered, and she’s not worried about competition from home theaters.
