New Dining Experience for Movie-Goers

Heading to the movies has gotten a whole lot more entertaining and delicious.

Emagine Entertainment has many theatres though out the midwest and have been operating for over 20 years. These are not your typical movie theatres. There is luxury seating, lounge, axe throwing, cocktails, craft beers, and an enhanced concession menu. There are multiple areas to host private and public events. They have theatre rental and a screening room. The sound in these theatres is incredible. The EMAX auditoriums feature wall to wall, ceiling to floor screens with Dolby Atmos sound system with each speaker hooked up to it’s own amp for a truly immersive experience. If all of that isn’t convincing enough, they have heated reclining seats for your viewing pleasure. Emagine is all about quality entertainment and the details matter.

“I had no experience in purchasing Bar and Kitchen Equipment. JD at Horizon taught and guided me through the selecting and buying process. We’ve been happy working with Horizon.”
Dale Haider - Director of Facilities

In 2016, Emagine purchased theatres in 9 locations in Minnesota. They wanted a local restaurant equipment supplier and found Horizon. Horizon has helped design, renovate, and outfit these 9 locations. Horizon provided and serviced kitchen equipment in the bar, beer system, ice machines, refrigeration, stainless steel tables, shelving, refrigerated display cases and all of the commercial kitchen equipment in the back of the house. Love pizza? Emagine splurged on Wood Stone Fire Deck Pizza Ovens in each location. Is popcorn your thing? You can get it popped in coconut or olive oil. For topping, they offer real butter, house made caramel, cheese, and your traditional movie theatre butter. Their rewards program gives you all you can eat popcorn to boot.

Emagine invested in these locations for the long run so quality is key in their buying decisions. Horizon streamlined their research to solidify a quality mix of equipment that is already paying off. In three years with these new locations, they’re operating smoothly and plan to duplicate this model in future theatres. No matter how specific or elaborate your design may be, our team at Horizon can help you outfit your foodservice operation.
