Marcus Theatres is launching Indie Focus, a new initiative to offer audiences the opportunity to watch top art and independent films. The program will be offered at 11 Marcus Theatres locations in six states, Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska, North Dakota and Wisconsin.

“Marcus Theatres is committed to championing movies of all kinds and offering great entertainment to all of our different audiences,” said Rolando B. Rodriguez, president and CEO. “Our guests will appreciate being able to enjoy these films in the comfort of our state-of-the-art auditoriums.”

Each week, participating theatres will run a new Indie Focus film for a full slate of shows, including evenings and matinees. Regular theatre pricing will apply, including special pricing, such as $5 Tuesdays. The program commences on Jan. 17 with Spike Jonze’s Her.

In September, Marcus Theatres launched the Theatre Entertainment Network, an initiative to offer audiences a variety of alternative entertainment options including concerts, opera, comedy performances and classic movies on the big screen.
