TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) -- Residents on Tallahassee's north side will soon have a new movie theater option right in their neck of the woods.
On Thursday, Leon Capital Group, a Dallas-based investment company, announced plans for Cinépolis USA to join the Market Square mixed-use development located off of Thomasville Road and Interstate 10.
Investors say the planned 8-screen Cinépolis Luxury Cinemas will be the first luxury theater concept from Cinépolis USA in North Florida.
Leon Capital Group says the theater will offer guests, "a luxury movie-going experience with fully reclining leather seats, full bar, gourmet dining and in-theater waiter service available at the touch of a button."
Construction is scheduled to begin in early 2019, with a grand opening expected in 2020.
The theater will anchor a line-up of local, regional and national retailers, restaurants, offices and a hotel planned for the Market Square development.
There are already several Cinépolis USA locations across Florida, including in Coconut Grove, Jupiter, Deerfield Beach, Polk County and Orlando, with new locations recently announced for Lake Nona.
