WAITE PARK - Now you can grab a pizza and a beer on your way into the movie theater.

Marcus Theatres' Parkwood Cinema in Waite Park is opening Zaffiro's Pizzeria and Bar today (Monday).  Communications and Marketing Manager Carlo Petrick says they want their customers to have a complete experience.

Petrick says you can dine in their 120 seat restaurant, or you can order an 8-inch or 16-inch pizza, along with a beer or wine, and bring it into the theater with you.

The restaurant also has a separate entrance, so you can go there to eat without going to a movie.  In the coming months they plan to add delivery service as well as live acoustic music on Friday evenings.

Petrick says the new restaurant is just one of the many upgrades.  They've also redone their lobby and box office areas.  And you'll notice other new features coming soon.
