Westfield Montgomery has released a video simulation of the ArcLight Cinemas and renovated food court planned for the mall.
According to the Facebook page announcement, the mall is now under construction and a renovated dining terrace is expected by late fall 2013, followed by the opening of the 16-screen ArcLight Cinema in spring of 2014.
The video "sneak peak" takes viewers through a simulation of the expanded seating and dining at the food court and the entrance to the cinemas, located on the second level above the eateries. More fast-casual dining similar to Noodles & Co. is planned for the second level near the theater, according to the Facebook announcement.
The California-based theater chain charges a “premium” ticket price – about 20 percent more than conventional theaters – for amenities including reserved seating, commercial-free movies, gourmet food, and special events with filmmakers.
"This is all happening where the current Food Court is, the ceiling is being raised. The ArcLight theater will go on top of the existing Food Court parking garage and expand over the current driveway leading up to the Food Court," mall representatives wrote via Facebook. "With the expansion the Dining Terrace will then expand outward to where the current driveway is to create more seating and dining options."
The current food court and movie theater will remain open during construction, according to the Facebook announcement. Following the opening of the ArcLight Cinema, the current three-screen theater will be converted into retail shops, Patch reported.
