MAPLEWOOD, MO (KTVI)-- The idea of pizza and a movie takes on a whole new meaning these days for two businesses. They joined forces to stay afloat and keep you fed during the cold weather.

On a cold night a lot of us just want have some hot pizza and a movie. Well now you can get both from the comfort of your home.

The hot food at Marco's Pizza is coming out but this is not your average pizza joint, when you call in you can get both dinner and a movie. Family Video and the pizza franchise joined forces to create a unique partnership that's working.

Bishop Frank Otis has been coming to Family Video for 15 years and loves the idea. Managers say the business is booming.

Now there are two combo stores open in the St. Louis area and 7 should be up and running by the end of next year. There are also stores in Illinois. They're also looking for workers.

So the next time it’s chilly outside, remember dinner and a movie is just one phone call away.
