Cinépolis USA to anchor Avonlea Town Center in Loudoun County
A luxury movie theater is set to make its debut in Virginia next year, employing more than 100 people.
Fairfax-based The Peterson Cos. announced Thursday that Cinépolis USA, a 39,000 square-foot, luxury movie theater will anchor its $70 million Avonlea Town Center in Loudoun County.
Avonlea Town Center, a 30-acre, mixed-use development near the intersection of Route 50 and Loudoun County Parkway, is set to break ground this year.
The 11-screen, 748-seat theater will include reclining leather seats, in-theater waiter service, gourmet meals and a full bar menu.
“There is tremendous enthusiasm for what we’re creating at Avonlea and we look forward to announcing a complementary array of restaurants, cafes, specialty shops and boutiques in the coming months,” Taylor O. Chess, president of retail for Peterson Cos., said in a statement.
Avonlea Town Center is expected to encompass 265,000 square feet of space, including a 40,000-square-foot supermarket, 122,500 square feet of other retail, a 32,000-square-foot health club and 40,000 square feet of office space.
