Lubbock to get a new megaplex in November
LUBBOCK, TX — A new sixteen-screen megaplex will open at the South Plains Mall to be operated by Premiere Cinemas of Big Spring in time for this year’s December blockbusters. The new cinema will have a digital IMAX screen and some D-BOX seats in addition to all-digital projection and stadium seating. Refreshment offerings will also include a Starbuck’s and two bars.
The owners say this new facility will bring nearly a hundred jobs to Lubbock, and they’re shooting for an opening date of November 3.
This huge venture will also provide considerable competition for Cinemark Theaters, which has been the only game in town for first-run movies for a number of years other than the Stars & Stripes Drive-in. It’s notable Premiere Cinema 16 will be going in just a couple miles away from Cinemark Movies 16 on Spur 327.
