CHARLOTTE, N.C., May 8, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- EDENS, a leading national retail real estate owner, operator and developer, and AMC Theatres®, the largest movie exhibition company in the world, is excited to announce that guest-favorite moviegoing is coming to Park Road Shopping Center in 2019.
"EDENS is very glad to be working with AMC to bring great movie theatre entertainment to this neighborhood," says Lyle Darnall, Managing Director of EDENS. "This has been an active theatre since 1964, and we know the Charlotte community values that history. We have great local retail partners, and now – with AMC – we are bringing the complementary, elevated entertainment this community deserves."
The theatre will undergo a period of renovations, which will incorporate new design elements and movie-going amenities, including the wildly popular AMC Signature Recliner seating. The renovations will also give the theatre a completely refreshed look and feel, while preserving the historic nature of the building.
