BURLESON, TX — The growing Burleson Commons area will soon have a modern movie theater with flashy additions such as a jazz bar and amphitheater.

Burleson Partners LLC and a company called Screenworks broke ground last week on a 12-screen movie theater that is regarded as one of the main anchor businesses in the commercial development here known as the Burleson Commons.

“This is a great day for the city of Burleson,” Mayor Ken Shetter said at Thursday morning’s groundbreaking ceremony at the site. “We believe it’s a good deal for the city. This is going to be an asset for Burleson families and the city of Burleson.”

Burleson Commons, a 38-acre property on the southeast corner of Texas 174 and Farm-to-Market Road 714, is under development by Burleson Partners through its parent company Cullinan Properties in Peoria, Ill.
