Harkins Theatres to Build New Luxury Cinema in Aurora, Colorado



Scottsdale, AZ, August 2, 2018 – Harkins Theatres announced today the acquisition of a 12-acre parcel located at Tower & I-70 in Aurora, Colorado. This site will be the future home to the third location in the greater Denver market for the largest privately-owned theatre chain in the country. Harkins opened its flagship theatre in Colorado, Harkins Northfield 18, located at the Shops at Stapleton, in 2006. Following the success of the Northfield 18 theatre, the newly-rebuilt Harkins Arvada 14 theatre opened in April 2018 with brand new amenities, bringing the Ultimate Moviegoing™ experience to Arvada and the surrounding communities.

“We are grateful for the phenomenal community support at both our Northfield and Arvada theatres,” says Mike Bowers, President and CEO of Harkins Theatres. “After having sought opportunities throughout Denver, we are excited to have found our next home in Aurora!”

The new theatre will feature Harkins’ premium large format auditorium, the CINÉ1®.  This auditorium will boast plush, leather reclining Ultimate Lounger™ seats, Dolby Atmos® 3D object-based sound across 150+ speakers and signature gold waterfall drapes that will open to unveil each performance. The CINÉ1® at Harkins Theatres is the perfect fusion of technology, style and showmanship, redefining the Ultimate Moviegoing™ experience.

“The new Aurora theatre will include outstanding amenities and programs for the surrounding community,” says Dan Harkins, Owner of Harkins Theatres. “We are beyond thrilled to provide the Ultimate Moviegoing Experience and entertain our new friends in Aurora.”

Theatre highlights will include:

  • CINÉ1® Auditorium featuring Harkins Ultimate Lounger™ seats, laser projection, reserved seating and digital sound
  • Harkins Ultimate Lounger™ seats (plush, electric, leather reclining seats) in all auditoriums
  • Reserved seating in all auditoriums
  • Paperless, mobile ticketing
  • In-lobby bar featuring wine and beer, including local craft favorites
  • State-of-the-art laser projection and digital sound
  • Wall-to-wall curved screens

    This is dumb and a waist of time and money it’s right next to the petco and if you stand in front of the store you will be able to see the Harkins theater in North field so why have them so close together if you have to build one out it the mountains I don’t see why we need two that are like 15 minutes apart from each other

    I’m so excited that a Harkins theater is coming to this community (GVR/far northeast Aurora). Even though there is a Harkins in Northfield close to this community, a theater is well needed in this rapid growing community, and surrounding neighborhoods. Thank you Harkins, a wise choice.
