IDAHO FALLS, ID (February 25, 2020) - Following a December 2019 announcement on a joint venture project between Ball Ventures and the Larry H. Miller Group of Companies, the team is sharing additional details regarding the new Megaplex Theatre planned for Snake River Landing, a 450-acre, mixed-use development in Idaho Falls, Idaho.
The new Megaplex luxury theatre aims to redefine the user experience. Plans include 38,000 square feet of new construction, 10 screens and 975 all-luxury leather recliners. The cinemas are designed to provide the utmost comfort and a spectacular movie experience, equipped with state-of-the-art sound and image technology, with the largest screen spanning 80 feet in length. Each cinema will also contain a quiet room to allow new parents and children a refuge to enjoy their film.
With the new “no lines” concept, the lobby turns its focus from waiting in ticket sales lines to creating a luxury lounging environment to offer patrons gourmet food and beverage options. The new lobby experience will incorporate technology, variable seating options, lighting and refined materials to enhance the user experience. Megaplex offers an unparalleled cinema experience from the awe-inspiring moment patrons enter the lobby to the magnificent viewing experience of a favorite film.
“We are excited to enter the Idaho Falls market,” said Blake Andersen, President Larry H. Miller Megaplex Theatres. “Our construction team is diligently working on plans to bring a world-class building that will complement our Megaplex commitment to providing our customers with the best movie-viewing experience available.”
“The Larry H. Miller Group of Companies casts a wide net of successful ventures and have defined their ABC’s of success: automobile dealerships, basketball, and community involvement,” said Cortney Liddiard, Chief Executive Officer of Ball Ventures. “Ball Ventures is excited to be a part of their future in Idaho Falls and to bring the new Megaplex to Snake River Landing.”
Initial work on the site will begin in mid-March, with construction on the building starting in late spring. Estimated completion of the project is early 2021.
The development is located at the corner of Sunnyside Road and Snake River Parkway, next to the planned Heritage Park along the banks of the Snake River. Conveniently located near downtown Idaho Falls and I-15, the site provides convenient access to surrounding communities, ample parking, and pads for four restaurants.
Snake River Landing is a growing, vibrant community with over 30 businesses, great restaurants, 400 residential units, a daytime population of over 2,000 people, three new office buildings planned or under construction, and the planned Heritage Park and Mountain America Center.
