November 4th, 2015 marked the groundbreaking for a new 55,000 square foot theater at Manhattan Town Center in Manhattan, Kansas. The masonry and steel structure will house 13 stadium-seating auditoriums, including one IMAX large format theater. The project is the first of this prototype, which includes a unique split with half of the auditoriums offering a traditional theater experience and half offering a VIP Dine-In experience. Customers will have the ability to choose the event that fits their mood at the ticket counter!
The new facility will replace the existing 12-screen Carmike theater. It is a cornerstone of the vision of the owner, Urban Retail, to reinvigorate Manhattan Town Center.
The facility is slated to open Fall of 2016.
