Emagine Breaking Ground for New Frankfort Theatre

Work has already begun on the former Dominick’s supermarket that is slated to be the site of Emagine Frankfurt. This $3.8-million-dollar project will house 10 theaters furnished with Dolby sound systems, state-of-the-art projectors, and power reclining leather seats.

Although this will be Emagine’s 10th location, the Michigan-based luxury entertainment chain is making headlines as Frankfort will be the first location out of state.

Emagine Frankfort will also feature a 19 seat bar, table seating, a gas fireplace and a player piano in the lobby when you walk in. The food will be well beyond your average theatre concessions, with custom made pizzas from a stone pizza oven. There will also be an event/party room at the rear of the building for private event rentals.

Emagine Frankfort is set to open this winter. — Emagine is taking manager applications at jobs@emagine-entertainment.com. To view and apply for other positions, please see our Careers page.
