Pinewood Forest, a 235-acre master-planned residential and mixed-use development adjacent to Pinewood Atlanta Studios, has broken ground for its nine-screen cinema.
Pace Lynch Corporation and Spotlight Theatres have partnered to develop and operate the theatre, which is projected to open in early 2021.
The cinema, which is expected to host premieres for movies such as those filmed at Pinewood Atlanta Studios, corporate functions and live broadcasts of sporting events, will seat approximately 850 patrons in its nine theatres.
The ninth screen (Screen 9) will serve as the building’s outdoor rooftop experience.
The attraction is expected to bring more than 300,000 visitors to Fayetteville’s Pinewood Forest community annually.
“We are excited to create a unique and innovative boutique theatre celebrating the artistry of film,” Rob Parker, president of Pinewood Forest, said in a press release.
“There is no place more fitting to observe Georgia’s major contribution to the film industry than within arm’s reach of North America’s largest production facility, Pinewood Atlanta Studios.”
The theatre will be situated within the 25-acre Town Center at Pinewood Forest.
Pinewood Forest’s theatre will feature Immersive Digital Audio complementing digital 4k projection, seating that reclines, wall-to-wall screens and amenities including online advanced ticketing, will-call, reserved seating and an expanded concession menu.
The surrounding area will include a boutique and select-service hotel, office spaces, a variety of shops and restaurants, as well as the Piedmont Wellness Center, a 60,000-square-foot state-of-the-art wellness facility which opened in November of 2019.
