Eight-Screen, 744-Seat iPic Theaters Will Feature Tanzy Restaurant and Tanzy Express, Offering New In-Theater Dining Options by Renowned Chef Sherry Yard

BOCA RATON, Fla., May 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- iPic Entertainment announces today that the construction process is underway and on schedule for the eight-screen, 744-seat luxury movie theater escape iPic Theaters at The Boyd in downtown Philadelphia, set to open in 2015. Located one block from Rittenhouse Square at 1910 Chestnut Street, iPic Theaters at The Boyd will continue iPic Entertainment's vision to revolutionize the film industry, offering an exceptional movie-going experience and the ultimate night out. That experience will now include new dishes and concessions at the establishment's in-theater dining concept Tanzy Express, introduced by recently appointed renowned chef Sherry Yard, Corporate Vice President of Culinary Direction at iPic Entertainment. Yard was inducted into the prestigious James Beard Who's Who of Food and Beverage in America on May 5.

"We're thrilled with the progress of iPic Theaters at The Boyd and look forward to inviting the Philadelphia community to experience our vision for affordable luxury movie watching entertainment when we officially open next year," said Hamid Hashemi, President and CEO of iPic Entertainment. "On a culinary level, guests should be ready to experience the ultimate culinary wow factor with Sherry's fresh new spin on in-theater dining and gourmet concessions."

iPic Theaters at The Boyd will enable guests to enjoy a movie in ultimate comfort and style while offering many options to select from to tailor their experience. Guests will have the choice between Premium and Premium Plus seating and a diverse, locally sourced gourmet menu designed by Yard at Tanzy Express. The gourmet menu will feature items that are conducive to in-cinema dining with a high level of culinary craft, such as Salmon Tartar Cones and Lobster Rolls.

On the sweeter side, iPic Theaters at The Boyd will feature curated concessions showcasing Yard's take on classic favorites along with selections from local artisans, such as locally made caramels and toffee. From Yard's own Helms Bakery, guests can expect treats such as Chocolate Chip Toffee Coffee Cookies, Triple Gingerbread Cookies, Apple Caramel Ice Cream Cups with Almond Streusel and Creme Fraiche Rhubarb Pops.

Premium seat ticketholders will relax in large, plush leather seats and may purchase their food and beverage direct from Tanzy Express and carry it into the theater to enjoy at their seats. Premium Plus seating will feature reclining, oversized leather chairs; popcorn; pillows and blankets; and individual service-call buttons that summon ninja-like servers to deliver signature dishes or hand-crafted cocktails from Tanzy Express.

The new theater will also feature Tanzy, an innovative, independent dine-in restaurant serving artisanal Italian cuisine with contemporary style. A full-service bar will offer an exclusive menu of hand-crafted cocktails by mixologist and master sommelier Adam Seger. Imaginative and whimsical interiors will create a memorable dining experience for any occasion.

iPic Theaters at The Boyd will feature eight auditoriums with seating between 60 and 120 in an intimate setting. All auditoriums will be equipped with 4K digital cinema technology. All seats may be reserved ahead of time on iPic's proprietary reservation system by visiting iPic.com, or moviegoers can simply download the iPic app to their iPhones for a hassle-free, one-step transaction process. A membership program enables iPic members to cash in on discounted pricing, priority notification of tickets available for purchase to blockbuster movies, access to exclusive movie showings and the ability to earn points toward iPic Member Reward programs.
