Two luxury cinemas opening at Jacksonville’s Latitude 30 entertainment complex
JACKSONVILLE, FL — An upscale entertainment complex called Latitude 30 will be opening here in mid-December. In addition to boutique bowling, a restaurant, a sports bar, billiards, a high-tech arcade, and meeting and banquet facilities, the new facility features two cinemas, one seating seventy and the other three hundred, both with dining and cocktail service. An additional Latitude 30 complex is slated for Nashville, and the company is apparently looking for additional sites in Pittsburgh and Indianapolis.
The 50,000 square foot entertainment center is housed in the former Toys R Us store on Philips Highway, across the street from The Avenues Mall. Construction began in December 2009, but the design and concept have been in the works for more than three years, Brent Brown, managing partner of Brownstone Group, which owns Latitude 30, said Tuesday.
