Bloomfield Hills-based MJR Digital Cinemas will spend $2.7 million to renovate the Partridge Creek Digital Cinema 14 in Clinton Township, which includes converting the seating to reclining seats, among other improvements. The theater will remain open throughout the renovations, set to be completed by November.
"We are very happy with the results we are seeing from our first conversion to the electric recliners and reserve seating at our MJR Chesterfield location," says Michael Mihalich, founder and CEO of MJR Digital Cinemas. "We think our renovated Partridge Creek Theatre with the lush electric recliners, reserve seating, and the great atmosphere provided by the mall, as well as all of the great restaurants, will be a huge success."
Mihalich says the renovations, scheduled to begin in June, will include converting the seating in all of the auditoriums to electric reclining seats with reserved seating. Other renovations include a new concession stand with new self-serve soft drink machines, a full-service bar in the lobby, and new carpeting and drapery.
MJR Digital Cinemas has nine locations with 148 screens in Michigan, in cities including Sterling Heights, Southgate, Troy, and Waterford Township, among others. The company, founded in 1980, employs 700 people across its theaters.
