Gregory Marcus, president and CEO of Marcus Corp. said, "In what historically is a strong quarter, the team at Marcus Hotels & Resorts did not disappoint, delivering record revenue and operating income. Marcus Theatres reported record revenues and had yet another very profitable quarter, although its operating income was impacted by several one-time costs and a film mix that contributed to slightly higher film costs."
