In the next few weeks, foundation and footing work will start at the Marcus Ridge Cinema, 5200 S. Moorland Road, New Berlin, as the first step toward converting one of the 20 theaters into a restaurant.
Zaffiro's Pizzeria & Bar is scheduled to open this spring at the Ridge. A similar transformation was previously performed at another Marcus Theaters movie complex, the North Shore Cinema.
No timetable for the rest of the work at the Ridge is available, said Carlo Petrick, communications manager for Marcus Theaters.
