Now, the new Frank Theatres in Delray Marketplace offers another revolutionary experience, combining bowling and dining with the theater experience. Even Cinemark Palace 20 in Boca has taken note and upgraded its experience, adding a new floor-to-ceiling XD screen, an enhanced sound system and plush seating. One problem: How will we ever choose which theater to go to?
