Work could begin sometime this summer on the construction of a new 12-screen luxury theater in Northglenn, Colorado.
The project will belong to the Harkins Theater company.
Based in Scottsdale, Arizona, that company currently has 34 theaters up and running in Arizona, California, Colorado, Oklahoma, and Texas.
The new Northglenn 55,000 square-foot movie house, adding to the three theaters that Harkins already has in metro Denver, will go up at the intersection of Interstate 25 and 104th Avenue.
The theater will be located on the north end section of the Northglenn Marketplace in an area of rapid suburban residential and commercial growth.
In a statement, Dan Harkins, owner and executive chairman of Harkins Theater, said the Northglenn facility will “include our latest and greatest amenities and programs that we are thrilled to share with a new community of movie-lovers.”
Although when work will officially begin on the project has not yet been announced, the new theater is expected to be open for business sometime in the fall of 2020.
With roots reaching back to 1933, Harkins is the fifth largest movie chain outfit in the U.S. and the single largest family-owned and operated theater company in the country.
Last year Harkins announced it was launching a $150 million effort to renovate and update its theater properties, adding larger screens, in-lobby bars, and leather reclining seats.
