The new facility is modern in every way, equipped with RealD® 3D to provide true-to-life 3D. RealD is a new generation of digital 3D, giving moviegoers a stunningly realistic movie experience that engages the imagination, activates the senses and invites the audience not only to watch a film, but also step inside the story.

The 14 screen theatre covers approximately 55,000 square feet and includes more than 2,300 seats. Moviegoers will enjoy stadium seating, with each row elevated for an unobstructed view, and high-back rocking chairs feature cupholder armrests which move out of the way to form seats for two.
Everyone is invited to enjoy this new entertainment destination on Saturday, July 11; Sunday, July 12; and Monday, July 13. These preview events will feature $2 movies, $2 popcorn and $2 soft drinks with proceeds benefiting local charities.
