WHITEFISH BAY (WITI) -- Badgers fans looking for a BIG screen for Monday night's big NCAA Tournament championship game vs. the Duke Blue Devils got just that at the Fox Bay Cinema Grill in Whitefish Bay. They showed the big game on the silver screen!

The Badgers game was the biggest ticket in town, and at Fox Bay Cinema Grill, that ticket was free Monday!

Fox Bay officials say the opportunity to show the game was just too good to pass up. They did it for the Final Four game, and they did it again Monday night.

It was a packed house at the Fox Bay Cinema Grill Saturday night when the Badgers defeated Kentucky to advance to the championship game. Fox Bay officials were expecting the same Monday night.

So Badgers fans -- do you think watching the game on a 60-inch Sony LED is cool? Try 60 feet!

"I believe it`s a 60-foot screen and we also have a high-definition digital projector that we have cable hooked up to. We had a technician out the other day to make sure the picture was crystal clear and huge," Fox Bay Cinema Grill Manager Abby Veitch said.

180 is the magic number. That's now many people the large theater seats.

The doors opened at 7:30 at the Fox Bay Cinema Grill, located on E. Silver Spring Drive in Whitefish Bay.

Ultimately, though it was a hard-fought effort, the Badgers fell to the Duke Blue Devils 68-63.
