Eight Twin Cities Movie Theatres to Receive Magical Makeovers
(Troy, Michigan – October 17, 2016) Emagine Entertainment, Inc. announces plans to transform eight (8) movie theatres in the Twin Cities in order to provide the best movie going experience for Minnesota movie-goers. The announcement comes on the heels of the company’s acquisition of Muller Family Theatres in July 2016.
Among the first wave of theatres to receive a new look are Emagine Willow Creek and Emagine Lakeville. Willow Creek and Lakeville Phase 1 will be completed by Christmas with 100% completion by March 2017. Other theatres getting a facelift include Emagine Rogers, Emagine Waconia and Emagine Delano, which will be completed by summer 2017; as well as Emagine East Bethel, Emagine White Bear and Emagine Monticello, receiving their transformations Late Summer 2017.
As a Michigan-based company, the owners of Emagine Entertainment are proud to expand upon the company’s Midwestern roots by bringing its innovative luxury theatre concept, as well as its commitment to community partnership, to the Twin Cities. “We are extremely excited about introducing the Emagine brand into the Minnesota market,” says Paul Glantz, Co- Founder and Chairman of Emagine Entertainment, Inc. “The Emagine concept is to provide luxury upscale features and amenities that will raise the bar for out-of-home entertainment in Minnesota. Our theatres are going to reinvent the movie-going experience for guests by offering priority seating, numerous upscale amenities, and a full service bar. We look forward to guests being treated to an evening of great drinks, concessions, and great movies in an incredibly comfortable environment.”
Playing a key role in the franchise’s decision to expand to the Twin Cities was Jon Goldstein, President of Highline Investments, L.L.C., who lends 14 years of expertise in renovating theatre complexes in mid-market communities. With six successful ventures under his belt in Michigan, Pennsylvania and Maryland, he saw an opportunity to bring Emagine’s vision to Minnesota. “The whole Emagine family is excited to be in Minneapolis. We have spent the last year talking to customers. Our goal was really to understand our new communities and how we can serve them properly. We are hopeful that we can continue the legacy of the Muller family while sharing our vision for the future. I only hope that we can incorporate the warmth of the people we have met into our everyday operations,” says Goldstein.
Amenities of the new theatres will include:
• Emagine “E-Max” auditoriums large format screens and the latest Dolby Atmos® immersive sound system.
• 100% reserved seating featuring luxurious extra-comfy power recliners.
