FREDERICKSBURG, VA — Opened on May 7, the new twelve-screen Muvico Village 12 in the Spotsylvania Towne Center features digital projection, 3-D capability, all stadium seating, deluxe VIP seating, cocktail service for those of age, and a bowling center with sixteen lanes called Splitsville. There is a story here.
However, a mural painted above the theater’s Civil War-themed outdoor bar area has angered some patrons because it includes the a partial image of a Confederate flag. The flag will be painted over. Stories here andhere.
It would be great to have this type of theater closer, perhaps within closer distance to the 95 DC/MD/VA beltway. Fredericksburg is in the middle of nowhere except maybe Potomac Mills Mall. The former Muvico, now Cinemark Egyptian doesn’t have these amenities. Screenwise, the place is already saturated with Regal and AMC.
