Emagine is planning to open the largest CinemaScope screen in the Midwest at their Canton Township theater next week.
The Super EMax CinemaScope screen will measure 94 feet wide and will debut on Dec. 19. 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.
A Grand Opening celebration of Emagine’s Super EMAX will take place Thursday, December 19th, with an official ribbon cutting at 7:00 p.m., which is open to the media. The first paid ticketed showing open to the public in the Super EMAX auditorium will commence at 7:30pm with STAR WARS: THE RISE OF SKYWALKER.
Special engagement adult Super EMAX tickets, like those for STAR WARS: THE RISE OF SKYWALKER, will be priced at $10.00 for matinees and $15.00 for shows starting after 6:00 p.m. Tickets are available at www.emagine-entertainment.com, at in-theatre lobby kiosks, the box office, and on Emagine’s Smartphone app.
With the addition of the new screen at its Canton/Westland location, Emagine Entertainment, Inc.’s affiliates operate 128 movie screens at 11 locations.
