Cinetopia to open 20-screen megaplex in Overland Park
OVERLAND PARK, KS — Upscale theater operator Cinetopia has announced plans to open a twenty-screen theater at the Prairiefire at LionsGate center in this suburb of Kansas City. The emerging chain has one theater open in Vancouver, WA and is in the midst of construction of two more, one at the Vancouver Mall and another in Beaverton, OR. The new Kansas City-area Cinetopia theater will, as its other theaters do, feature at least one large format screen, a restaurant, a wine bar, and some of its “Living Room” 21+ screening salons.
“We have an amazing opportunity … to enhance the educational experience by highlighting documentaries and movies simultaneously,” Rudyard Coltman, president of Cinetopia LLC, said in a release.
Cinetopia will host community and performing arts events in addition to first-run movies. Tickets will cost between $8.50 and $10.50.
