Edens & Avant announced Thursday that Albemarle Place will soon be home to a new Regal Cinemas and the only IMAX® theater in Charlottesville.
Opening in fall 2012, the new cinema will feature state-of-the-art digital technology and 14 screens, making it the largest cinema within a 60-mile radius of Charlottesville.
Albemarle Place is a 65-acre development at the intersection of Route 29 and Hydraulic Road.
The new Regal Cinemas will be part of the first phase of a new town center by Edens & Avant that will feature a pedestrian-friendly environment with a mix of national and local retailers, an eclectic collection of restaurants, a leading grocer, and a hotel.
“We believe our loyal patrons in Charlottesville will be impressed with this first-class cinema including the IMAX premium experience,” said Dick Westerling, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Advertising for Regal Entertainment Group. ”Regal is confident that the Seminole Trail intersection with Hydraulic Road is the very best location for an entertainment destination that will attract patrons from across the region. We couldn’t be more pleased to be part of Albemarle Place."
The Albemarle County Board of Supervisors unanimously approved zoning and proffer changes on August 4, allowing Edens & Avant to begin work on the first phase of the development.
