Cinépolis USA will operate the luxury movie theater in Hamlin’s town center, Boyd Development Corporation announced Aug. 19.
The theater will be Cinépolis’ seventh dine-in movie theater, which will include a waiter service, reclining leather seats and a full bar. It is scheduled to open fall 2017.
The 10-screen luxury movie theater will hold 750 to 800 seats and front Lake Hancock, along with three to five other waterfront restaurants.
Cinépolis, based in Dallas, is the third anchor tenant to commit to Hamlin. Walmart opens this fall and Publix will open in spring 2017.
“The announcement of Cinépolis USA, a leader in luxury theater entertainment, is very exciting and further reaffirms our vision that Hamlin will provide Central Florida residents with one-of-a- kind experiences in a unique waterfront setting,” Scott Boyd, Boyd Development Corporation president, said in a statement. “We continue to be pleased with the pace of interest from retailers and restaurateurs that would like to add their brands to Hamlin.”
Hamlin currently includes three neighborhoods for single-family homes — Ashton Woods’ Hamlin Reserve and Taylor Morrison’s Overlook at Hamlin and Cove at Hamlin. A 316-unit apartment project, LakeWalk at Hamlin, will complete by early 2018. In addition, Orlando Health is building a 16-bed hospital, scheduled to open early 2018.
