Some iPic seats are equipped with an in-theater service button that allows the moviegoer to place food and drink orders throughout show, which would be a first for the Sarasota-Manatee area. CineBistro has a last call for service before the movie starts.
The new theater will be the second of its kind in the Sarasota region, joining Cobb’s CineBistro at Westfield Southgate, which opened this year and which was expected to be the turning point for that struggling mall. CineBistro opened on the former site of Saks Fifth Avenue, which left Southgate for the Mall at University Town Center when it opened in 2014.
