Norwood, Mass. (September 19, 2012) Boston-area moviegoers will soon be able to experience a new level of luxury while viewing their favorite blockbusters. Showcase Cinemas, a leader in the motion picture exhibition industry, announces their partnership with Davio’s on a new, full service in-theatre restaurant concept at their hi-end theatre complex currently under construction in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts. In addition to the theatre’s full in-seat dining menu, the new, luxury cinema will also feature Davio’s Cucina, a standalone restaurant with a full bar and a specially priced menu.

“Our partnership with Steve DiFillipo and Davio’s is an integral component of our newest Cinema de Lux concept at Chestnut Hill,” said Shari Redstone, President of Showcase Cinemas. “We’re looking forward to providing an unparalleled luxury movie-going and dining experience and we are thrilled with the possibilities our partnership with Steve will create.”
