Cinema theater chain Cinépolis USA will make its first foray into Tarrant County when it opens in 2017 at the Glade Park power retail center in Euless.
The Southern California-based chain has signed a lease for 52,000-square-feet in the second phase of Glade Park, located at the southwest corner of State Highway 1 21 and Glade Road.
Blake Shipp with The Weitzman Group handled negotiations for Cinépolis USA as the theater chain’s tenant representative in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Neil Baron represented the cinema chain as its in-house representative.
Cinépolis USA will develop a multi-screen cinema at Glade Park that will feature plush automated recliners, a bar and gourmet snacks. The location should open in time for the summer movie season in 2017, according to a press release. The exhibitor’s parent company, Cinépolis, founded in Mexico in 1971, is the fourth-largest movie theater exhibitor in the world. The first location in the United States opened in 2011, and the theater now operates several U.S. locations. The first Texas location for Cinépolis USA is now under construction at mixed-use project Victory Park in downtown Dallas. That site is also scheduled to open in 2017.
The Glade Park development already includes a Dick’s Sporting Goods, a Dave and Busters, a Home Goods, a Five Below and a Michaels retail store. Late last year, Belk’s broke ground on a 95,000 square-foot fashion store that should open soon.
