ORLANDO, FLA. — Tavistock Development Co., in partnership with Steiner + Associates, has signed Cinépolis USA, a Dallas-based movie theater chain, to Lake Nona Town Center, a 100-acre mixed-use development that anchors the master-designed Lake Nona community in Orlando. Cinépolis will open a nine-screen, 40,000-square-foot theater at Lake Nona Town Center in 2020, anchoring the project’s second phase of development. The luxury theater will feature a lobby bar and lounge; stadium-style, fully reclining leather seats; and an in-theater wait staff that will service patrons with a full menu and bar at the touch of a button. Cinépolis USA’s Mexico-based parent company, Cinépolis, is the fourth largest movie theater exhibitor in the world, operating in 14 countries including the U.S. Lake Nona Town Center’s first phase opened in 2016 with an 85,000-square-foot office building, Marriott Residence Inn, Courtyard by Marriott, the 280-unit LandonHouse apartment community, 16,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space and a multi-level parking structure.

Pixon Apartments, Park Pizza & Brewing Co. restaurant, an outdoor container park and the new BBA Aviation/Signature Flight Support headquarters are also slated to open at Lake Nona Town Center by the end of the year.
