Marcus Wehrenberg Theatres is excited to announce the completion of extensive renovations at Ronnie’s Cinema in St. Louis, Missouri. After months of major construction, every element of the remodeled space will be ready for the public to enjoy on Thursday, November 2 — just in time for the holiday blockbuster season. From the installation of comfortable new DreamLounger℠ recliner seating in the 19 non-IMAX® auditoriums to three new food and beverage options, these changes solidify Ronnie’s as an ultimate moviegoing destination.

“We are thrilled to reveal this amazing transformation in its totality to the community,” said Rolando Rodriguez, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Marcus Theatres. “More than just cosmetic changes, these enhancements are intended to improve every aspect of the moviegoing experience. Guests can now reserve their tickets online, enjoy a restaurant-quality meal at the movies and relax in premium recliner seating that feels like home, all while enjoying the best of Hollywood on the big screen!”


In addition to the modern touches, the beloved Ronnie’s Drive-in has been preserved to keep the history of this cinema alive. The updated space and comprehensive food and beverage capabilities make Ronnie’s an ideal option for hosting birthday parties, group shows, in-auditorium business meetings, team building and other events.

To match its growth and expanded capabilities, Ronnie’s is hiring approximately 70 employees. Overall, Marcus Wehrenberg Theatres plans to add approximately 200 jobs to the marketplace through full time and seasonal associates at locations throughout Greater St. Louis, including Chesterfield, Des Peres and O’Fallon Cinemas. Each of these locations is also undergoing renovations that will be completed soon.
