It’s Showtime at the Franklin Theatre

The little known star of the Franklin Theatre is finally getting its time in the spotlight. Since 2012 the Showtime Premium Chocolate Bar has enhanced the theatre experience for those that have been lucky enough to partake. A previously under-the-radar item, the Showtime Bar is now in a starring role.

Exclusively made for and available at the Franklin Theatre, the Showtime Premium Chocolate Bar includes dark chocolate, crushed almonds, a dash of sea salt and caramel throughout.

Not only is the Showtime Premium Chocolate Bar produced exclusively for the Franklin Theatre, it’s made locally. Created in partnership with Schakolad Chocolate Factory, the bar itself went through several revisions before landing on the recipe that is sold today. It’s a chocolate bar made by chocolate lovers for chocolate lovers.

Through August, or while supplies last, a free movie ticket (some restrictions apply*) is included on the inside of the wrapper. Showtime Bars may be purchased for only $5 while attending events or at the box office. Free movie tickets are good through October 25, 2015.

A Showtime Bar is the perfect companion to a summer movie. Several summer classics are slated for late Summer performances.
