A new, high-tech, extra comfy, 14-screen movie theater is coming to Tucson.
Texas-based Cinemark announced it will build an all-digital movie theater at the Tucson Marketplace at the Bridges, the center near Interstate 10 and South Kino Parkway anchored by Walmart and Costco. The theater is expected to open in summer of 2016.
Cinemark owns the Century theaters at the El Con, Park Place and Oro Valley Marketplace malls, and the Century 12 near East Speedway and North Kolb Road.
The new theater will be the first Cinemark theater in Tucson to have “luxury lounger” electric-powered recliner chairs with foot rests. A Cinemark theater in Mesa has them. The dine-in Roadhouse Cinemas in Tucson also has recliner seating.
A 14-screen movie theater could employ about 80 to 100 people. Those new jobs would likely put Cinemark among Tucson’s largest employers.
