12-Screen Movie Theater with Reclining Chairs, Café Opens in Taylor


A new 12-screen movie theater has opened in Taylor, offering wall-to-wall screens, enhanced sound systems, electric reclining chairs, and a café.

Mark Zoradi, CEO of Cinemark Holdings Inc., the owner of the theater, says the Cinemark Southland Center theater, located at 23000 Eureka Rd. between Pardee Road and Racho Boulevard, will show first-run films, including The Huntsman: Winter’s WarCaptain America: Civil War; and X-Men Apocalypse, among others.

Zoradi says the Cinemark Southland Center theater features electric-powered, oversized reclining seats with footrests and cup holders; a concession stand offering popcorn, soft drinks, and candy; and Cinema Café, offering hamburgers, chicken tenders, pizzas, and teas and coffees.

Online and kiosk ticketing is available, along with reserved seating. Zoradi says moviegoers can download the Cinemark app to view show times and purchase tickets.

“This new state-of-the-art theater in Taylor will be Cinemark’s first new build in the greater Detroit market since 1991,” Zoradi says.
