Emagine Entertainment Brings New Cinema Theater to Macomb Township
- Nov 21, 2014
A Michigan-based entertainment company is set to open a new movie theater in Macomb Township by the end of the year.
Tower Construction crews are already working on redeveloping the former Kroger grocery store located at 15251 23 Mile Road on the northeast corner of Hayes Road. The Macomb Daily reports that Emagine Entertainment of Troy plans to open a nine-screen, high-end theater at the site as part of the company’s goal of expanding its presence in Michigan. According to the news source, Emagine closed on the property this past summer after having ruled out several potential locations in Grosse Pointe, St. Clair Shores and Roseville.
“From the moment you enter the venue, you will see and feel the difference. We are confident that we are building the movie theater of the future where guests can reconnect with movies in an environment that is as comfortable as their own living room but with one major improvement: we’ll clean up after them. The movie-goers of Macomb County are in for a real treat,” said Paul Glantz, co-founder and chairman of Emagine Entertainment, Inc., in a prepared statement. This will be Emagine’s eighth location in southeast Michigan.
The 1,070-seat Emagine Macomb was designed to reinvent the movie-going experience though an array of upscale amenities such as:
• An Emagine “E-Max” auditorium equipped with a floor-to-ceiling screen and the latest Dolby Atmos immersive sound system;
• Reclining seats;
• A full-service cocktail bar and display kitchen;
• Nine stadium-style auditoriums with 48-ft. screens;
• In-lobby video boards displaying trailers of upcoming films.
Scheduled to open on December 19, Emagine Macomb will create around 50 new construction jobs.
