New cinemas on the drawing board for Miami and Green Oaks
GREEN OAKS, IL — Milwaukee-based Marcus Theatres has announced that it will acquire the land required to build a theater with as many as fifteen screens just off I-94 in Green Oaks, IL which is east of Libertyville. One of the screening rooms will be home to one of the company’s large format UltraScreens. An opening in early 2012 is anticipated. There is more in the Libertyville Review.
MIAMI, FL — For quite some time, residents of downtown Miami have had to travel quite some distance to see the latest releases at a modern cinema. But this is expected to change late in late 2012 early in 2013. Silverspot Theaters has agreed to build a luxury twelve-plex in the Metropolitan Miami Complex at Biscayne Boulevard and Southeast Third Avenue where it will join a luxury hotel and a Whole Foods as part of an emerging upscale urban center. Silverspot currently operates an upscale multiplex in Naples, FL. The story appeared in the Miami Herald.
