concession area mariner theatre

Our concession stand offers over 20 different products at modest prices. We have great combos to choose from,  combo 1 (medium popcorn and soda), up to the belly busting combo 3 (Large popcorn and 2 medium sodas). Kids can enjoy a Krazy Kids Combo which includes an amount of popcorn the size of our small, a 12oz soda and a choice of 5 great candies. 

premium seats

Our theatres offer what nearly everyone says are the most comfortable seats in the area. They range in width from a very few at 20 inches, to the majority at 21 and 22 inches. Our distance between rows (back to back width) is an awesome 45 inches-nearly four feet! They are completely rebuilt from the ground up with new foam in them.

On the back of each seat in front of you, there is a cupholder located out of the way so you can enjoy the show without knocking over your drink-it even fits our small popcorn!

impressive screens

The Mariner is the only theatre in the area that has a Dolby 750 processor that allows us to present to you 5.1 Dolby Digital and 7.1 Dolby Digital Surround!

  • Our screens are the largest around; nearly 30 feet across!
  • Our capacity in the theatres is 261 persons each, so there is little chance we would ever sell out for any show Hollywood can throw at us.
  • Besides our cinema DLP projectors, we offer a smaller DLP/LCD projectors which will allow us to show some special interest movies using DVD/Bluray and our Dolby 750 processor to give those presentations  Digital 5.1 or 7.1 sound!

One improvement under consideration for the near future is the complete remodeling of our concession area. Also planned for the future are screen enlargements, to make a new curved silver screen stretch nearly the full width of the theatres-45 feet! This would allow us to have some of the largest screens in all of Northeast Wisconsin and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. So please continue to visit the Mariner Theatre. We want to be your hometown theatre now and for the next 100 years to come!
