The MJR Grand Digital Cinema 16 broke ground March 28, 2011 and received it’s Certificate of Occupancy on October 19, 2011.
The theater sets a standard for upscale cinematic entertainment venues and houses sixteen studios with 3,076 pedestal mount, high back rocker style seats on 46 inch deep riser platforms, each 18 inches in height. Large, wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling curved screens literally encompass the audience in their borders. The projection booths are 100% “Christie” digital and include “Real D 3-D” technology. The building is primarily masonry bearing construction with slab on metal deck mezzanine and slab on structural foam riser platforms. The 8,000 sf naturally lit lobby features a vaulted ceiling with decorative glazed tile wall finishes and a cast in place, slate textured, entrance floor. The exterior finishes are composed of brick veneer and EIFS stucco with ceramic tile accents and a “MJR-Red” full height, curved glass, reflective curtain wall that vaults to a 52 ft. high, circular dome clerestory feature above the theater’s entrance
The project also includes a new ten acre asphalt parking lot, extensive landscape plantings and double patron drop off and pick up lanes at the main entrance.
