Harkins Theatres announced plans to bring its new dine-in theatre concept to Lake Pleasant Towne Center in Peoria.
Harkins Ciné Grill will feature made-to-order cuisine, craft cocktails, local brews and traditional movie theatre bites combined with Harkins moviegoing experience.
The new Lake Pleasant Ciné Grill is coming to the Lake Pleasant Towne Center at the intersection of Lake Pleasant Parkway and Happy Valley Road. Harkins anticipates opening in the fourth quarter of 2022.
The company also plans to open another location at the former site of the Paradise Valley Mall in Phoenix, with construction expected in 2023.
“I’m thrilled for the opening of our dine-in theatres combining the magic of our state-of-the-art cinema and chef-inspired cuisine,” said Dan Harkins, owner of Harkins Theatres. “Bringing these together is sure to make the Harkins Ciné Grill moviegoing nirvana.”
The theatre’s kitchen and cocktail bar will offer guests made-to-order dishes from a full-service menu, curated cocktails and local beer and wine selections that they can order from their seats. Orders will be delivered discreetly before the opening credits begin, giving moviegoers time to settle into their Harkins Ultimate Loungers without interrupting a moment of the moviegoing experience.
The theatre’s indoor/outdoor bar and lounge will open onto an expansive outdoor patio that is perfect for private events and as an additional gathering place for guests to enjoy each other’s company before and after the movie.
Theatre highlights will include:
• Plush leather Ultimate Lounger electronic recliners and personal tables with reserved seating in each auditorium;
• State-of-the-art laser image and immersive sound;
• A full-service scratch kitchen;
• Indoor/outdoor cocktail bar, lounge and outdoor patio;
• Advance online/app food and beverage ordering;
• Elegant lobby design and décor with a sleek, modern flair and advanced technology featuring immersive surround sound audio, cutting-edge laser projection and a superior lighting system.
