Emagine is planning to open the largest CinemaScope screen in the Midwest at their Canton Township theater.
The Super EMax CinemaScope screen will measure 94 feet wide and will debut in December. The Grand Opening for the new screen will feature Star Wars: Episode IX The Rise of Skywalker.
Paul Glantz, Chairman of Emagine Entertainment, noted “while some competitors are closing and others struggle to play catch-up, Emagine remains firmly committed to providing its guests with the finest moviegoing experience possible. We are resolved to continually enhance the quality of the theatrical experience. Nothing beats watching a blockbuster film on a 94 foot screen from the comfort of a heated reclining chair.”
The planned expansion will have to be approved by Westland, Canton Township and Wayne County. With the addition of the two new screens at the Canton / Westland location, Emagine affiliates will operate 253 movie screens at 20 locations.
