Great Escape Theatres to open new megaplex in South Carolina
SIMPSONVILLE, SC — Boasting fourteen screens, including an IMAX auditorium, the Great Escape 14 is scheduled to open at the end of April. The complex cost $14 million to construct and contains 2,200 seats.
When the Great Escape 14 movie theater opens in late April in Simpsonville, it plans to take full advantage of the latest technology changes. That’s why the fully digital theater will have four screens specially fitted to show movies in 3-D.
That’s not counting the four-story screen in the first and only digital IMAX theater in the Upstate.
“More and more movies are in 3-D and now they’re backing up on top of one another,” said David Poland, vice president of operations with Aliance Entertainment, the Indiana-based theater development company that built the $14 million, 14-screen theater in Simpsonville.
