After shutting down for several weeks while undergoing renovations, Premiere Cinemas in Tomball has reopened with an array of new features, including a state-of-the-art digital projection system.
"It's a complete upgrade from the old Cinema 6, which was here for 30 years," said Jennifer Mendoza, general manager of the Tomball location. "We're excited that we are able to renovate and provide a better atmosphere for the public."
Other new features include a new 165-seat auditorium theater with 3D capabilities—bringing the total screen count to seven—as well as high back rocking chairs. Two new lobbies have been installed with modular seating and a video arcade. Concessions now include fresh-made cotton candy and a Dippin Dots ice cream cart. The upgraded concession area allows patrons to dress their own popcorn, hot dogs and nachos to their liking.
The theater started screening movies on Dec. 14 and celebrated with an official Chamber of Commerce ribbon cutting Dec. 20.
"This renovation is a part of a larger redevelopment effort at the Four Corners Shopping Center," said Bruce Hillegeist, president of the Chamber of Commerce. "We hope for it to be a whole new center soon."
Standard ticket prices are $7 for adults after 6 p.m. and $5 for shows before 6 p.m. Tickets for children between ages 3 and 12, as well as seniors over 60, are always $5. An additional $2 is charged for digital 3D features shown on the new 3D screen.
