New theaters coming to Simpsonville, SC and Warner Robins, GA
SIMPSONVILLE, SC — Great Escape Theatres is planing a March opening of its new 14-screen multiplex in this Upstate city. One of the auditoriums will be for IMAX presentations, and the complex will include a cocktail lounge.
A new movie theater is opening in the Upstate this spring. It will have the only Imax screen between Charlotte and Atlanta.
Great Escape is under construction on South Street in Simpsonville just off interstate 385 in between Fairview and West Georgia roads. “We expect folks to drive over from that famous Woodruff road area, drive over to the movies,” said Simpsonville mayor Dennis Waldrop.
The theater will also have a lounge that serves meals and drinks, not just popcorn.
