South Valley’s new 12-screen movie theater opens with $2 movies starting at 6:15 p.m. at Rio Bravo and Coors Southwest.
Tonight’s lineup includes “Jurassic World III,” “Max Max Fury Road,” “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” and “Un Gallo Con Muchos Huevos,” (A Rooster with a lot of huevos).
The new theater, operated by Carmike Cinemas, includes 12 screens and an IMAX theater component. The theater project cost about $12 million, including a 47,000 square foot building with more than 2,500 seats. Crews broke ground in January 2015, according to a sstatement from Bernalillo County.
All refreshments tonight will cost $2 and benefit the El Ranchito de los Niños charity. Showtimes for tonight’s premiere are here.
In August 2012 the Bernalillo County Commission approved a $1.5 million Local Economic Development Act grant to help pay for infrastructure such as drainage and roadway improvements for a 79-acre commercial development at the intersection.
The movieplex is part of the Las Estancias development. The project is required to create 230 new, permanent jobs by 2020 per the economic development agreement. The agreement includes “clawbacks,” or protections for taxpayers in case the project fails to produce enough jobs.
