IPIC Theaters, LLC is opening its first Georgia location on December 17, 2020, the company Wednesday announced in a press release. The Colony Square theatre was supposed to debut earlier this month, but the opening got pushed. The nine-screen, 426-seat theater in early 2021 will be joined by a 6,635-square-foot bar and restaurant Serena Pastificio, situated next door to the theater. Serena Pastificio will specialize in handmade pasta.
“IPIC Theaters offers a personalized cinematic experience that is thoughtfully designed to maximize our guests’ experience, and we are delighted to bring a new, unparalleled entertainment option to the Atlanta community,” Paul Safran, CEO and general counsel of IPIC Theaters, said in the release. “Whether you’re looking for a night out, a mid-day break, or a new family tradition, we look forward to creating a revolutionary theatrical escape for our guests.”
The dinner-and-a-movie concept offers a menu that focuses on seasonally-inspired dishes and signature plates, shareable staples, and keto and vegetarian-friendly options. Guests can also expect movie favorites such as classic and gourmet popcorn flavors, candy and treats, and a kid’s menu. Alcoholic options include a variety of wine, beer, and signature cocktails.
The new IPIC Theaters at Colony Square will feature nine auditoriums and seating between 18 to 72 seats. IPIC Theaters’ auditoriums are available for special occasions and private screenings. Select auditoriums are equipped with 4K digital projection and all seats may be reserved ahead of time on IPIC’s reservation system online or available on the IPIC app.
“When we acquired Colony Square, our team curated a merchandising plan that would strongly resonate with office workers, residents, and visitors in the district,” Adam Schwegman, partner and senior vice president of leasing at North American Properties, the owner of Colony Square, said in the release. “Through the addition of new retail, restaurants, service uses and unique entertainment options such as first-to-state IPIC, we are experiencing the revival of Midtown’s crown jewel. We are thrilled to have IPIC open their doors and bring this new, premium experience to our cherished destination.”
During its opening weekend, IPIC will show Monster Hunter, Fatale, Wild Mountain Thyme, Honest Thief, and Elf. On Christmas Day, the theatre will show Wonder Woman ’84, News of the World, and Promising Young Woman.
