MINNEAPOLIS, MN — The recently closed Chateau 14 in Rochester and the Odyssey 15 (formerly the Atlantic 15) in Burnsville have been purchased by Paragon Theaters. Paragon, based on Coconut Grove, Florida was formed by former executives of Muvico. Paragon will be renovating and upgrading both theaters.

At The Odyssey, upgrades will include a unique VIP premier seating area for those 21 and over as well as a bar and lounge with small plate food offerings. The VIP Premier is scheduled to open in Spring 2011. The Odyssey will also see a state-of-the-art expanded arcade and interactive gaming for kids and families. The centerpiece of the venue will be its 70-foot large format screen with the best available picture and sound, including 3D capability. “We plan to create a premier movie going experience and family destination with great amenities and outstanding customer service at a price point that is competitive with the other theaters in the marketplace,” said Whalen.

I hope they aren’t going to destroy the really cool lobby art and statues at the old Atlantis, nee Odyssey.
