Cinemark 12 Theatre

Southland Mall in Taylor, Michigan features the most recent Cinemark “nextgen” theatre design, offering a state of the art experience to the movie-going public. The theatre houses twelve studios with 1,161 electrically powered king size VIP plush leather recliner seats on super-deep riser platforms every three steps in height. Front row, “orchestra pit” style seating is also tiered, allowing for uncompromised sight lines to 100% of the seated audience. Large, wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling screens encompass every patron’s vision.

The theater’s “XD-Extreme Digital Cinema” experience occurs in a large, 241 seat auditorium featuring a 68’-4” wide by 36’-7” high curved screen, 38 wall speakers, 18 suspended ceiling speakers and 8 speaker racks behind the screen. The digital, 3-D with XD sound projection system provides the very best movie experience to Cinemark Taylor’s theatergoers.

The theatre’s design utilizes LED accent lighting throughout the entrance lobby, concession area and promenades. The 5,200 sf lobby features a 30 ft. high vaulted ceiling with suspended lighting and acoustical accent panels. Three large custom murals grace an upper wall of the lobby. All concession areas and public restrooms feature floor-to-ceiling ceramic tile covered walls and floors. The concession area features custom millwork cabinets with colorful fronts and a solid surface counter top. The concession area houses four large corn poppers, five double wide soda towers, two “ice-specialty” beverage machines and four candy display cabinets. Unique menu offerings include gourmet grilled cheese and BLT sandwiches and fries.
