Tickets are on sale for what looks to be a soft opening on Mon Oct 24, followed by a full opening on Fri Oct 28. They advertise all auditoriums as featuring Barco SP4K laser projection and Dolby Surround 7.1, with the Big Show featuring the 66' x 27' side-masked/scope screen and Dolby Atmos. The Big Show seats 237 with other seating capacities ranging from 111 (x4) to 67 (x2) to 50 (x2) for a total capacity of 915.

Saw Triangle of Sadness here last night in Theatre 7. The art deco look throughout the lobbies, and especially in the bar, is pretty neat, and everything is of course bright and shiny and new. The bar area is unique enough that it would be a fun place to hang out for a drink or a meal even without seeing a movie. The theatres themselves unfortunately were disappointing. Theatre 7 is one of the 111-seat houses, but the screen was top-masked/flat and only medium-sized, which leads me to believe the other screens, with the exception of the Big Show, are all similar or smaller. Picture, sound, and seat quality were all fine; they have the same wider, deeper recliners as the DC location as opposed to the narrow ones at Woodbridge. Food service was fine considering how new they are. The layout is stacked, somewhat similar to the DC location, except there’s nothing on the street level except the escalator/elevator lobby. The box office, bar, Big Show, and Theatres 2-5 are on the second level, with Theatres 6-9 stacked on top of 2-5 on the third floor.
