Work is expected to begin later this fall on an extensive renovation of the Harkins Theater in Gilbert, Arizona.
That location is part of the more than thirty sites owned and operated by Harkins in Arizona, California, Colorado, Oklahoma, and Texas, and will see an updating of auditorium space, as well as the construction of a lobby bar.
The theater is located in the sprawling San Tan Village shopping center in the 2200 block of Williams Field Road.
The location’s upgrading is part of a larger effort to renovate Harkins’ theaters in Chandler, Peoria, and Scottsdale.
Renovation work is also expected to launch later this year, or early next year, at the Harkins Theater in the Tucson Spectrum shopping mall in Tucson.
Earlier this year, the Scottsdale-based company announced construction plans for a new 12-screen theater in Phoenix’s Laveen Village. The project is expected to see completion in the latter part of 2020.
The company has additionally started construction of its new corporate offices off McDonald Drive in Scottsdale. That $32 million project will also include space for retail tenants.
Launched as a family-owned, one-theater operation in 1933, the Harkins Theater company today comprises the fifth largest theater chain in the country.
