Marcus Theatres® uses full suite of NCR cinema software to enhance customer experience

Global technology leader provides leading-edge cinema operator with mobile and cloud-based solutions


DULUTH, Ga. – WEBWIRE – Monday, March 24, 2014

NCR Corporation (NYSE: NCR), the global leader in consumer transaction technologies, today announced that Marcus Theatres®, a division of The Marcus Corporation (NYSE:MCS), has now deployed NCR’s full suite of cinema and restaurant solutions to improve its business operations and enhance its customers’ movie experience. Marcus Theatres has been a long-time customer, using NCR’s mobile and fixed point-of-sale (POS) systems, indoor kiosks, takeout and delivery software and NCR MovieTime mobile application.

Marcus Theatres is using the full suite of NCR solutions, including NCR’s Aloha takeout software to support its growing pizza takeout and delivery business. This was a ‘found’ business resulting from movie patrons asking for a pizza ‘to-go’ after watching a movie. Marcus Theatres was able to take advantage of the NCR Aloha solution and capitalize on its restaurant functionality to bring in the revenue.

“At Marcus Theatres, we believe technology can’t replace personal service, but it certainly can enhance it. Throughout our relationship with NCR, the company has delivered considerable value. We take a data-driven approach to our business and NCR’s software and solutions provide smart, actionable results that translate right into bottom-line savings,” said Rolando Rodriguez, president and chief executive officer of Marcus Theatres.

Additionally, Marcus Theatres will be amongst the first to integrate Movio’s best-in-class data analytics and campaign management platform into NCR’s cinema POS technology. This will allow Marcus Theatres to make better marketing decisions by providing deep insights into the company’s movie-going customers’ preferences, attendance habits, demographic composition, and as a result increasing marketing campaign effectiveness by tailoring offers to the targeted audience.

“Our goal is to support Marcus Theatres’ vision to create magical movie memories and exceed guest expectations in everything the company does" said Brian Whitney, managing director, Cinema, NCR Corporation. “For 17 years, our cinema solutions have enabled Marcus Theatres to build a better, more connected relationship with its customers by offering an exceptional user experience.”
