MENIFEE – Regent Properties recently announced that Krikorian Premiere Theatres will open a luxury movie theater entertainment complex at the Menifee Town Center.
Regent’s Menifee Town Center, which is currently under construction, is an ambitious 172-acre mixed-use development that will include a variety of housing options as well as retail, dining and entertainment spaces and potential municipal and state government offices.
Once complete, the vibrant mixed-use development is destined to become a modern civic center and the central gathering place of Menifee.
Regent Properties’ officials are thrilled to bring Krikorian Premiere Theatres on board, calling them an ideal tenant with a new idea for a lively entertainment complex that will add to an already-inviting atmosphere.
“We welcome Krikorian to the Menifee Town Center and look forward to all the excitement they will bring to our project and this community,” said Daniel T. Gryczman, executive vice president of Regent Properties. “Their one-of-a-kind concept is certain to be become one of the most bustling spots in town.”
In announcing the agreement to purchase land in Menifee Town Center, George Krikorian, president and CEO of Krikorian Premiere Theatres, said the company is eager to move into the Menifee marketplace and enthused about the opportunities that will bring.
“We have been watching with interest the growth of Menifee and have long wanted to be a part of the community,” Krikorian said. “It was just a question of finding the right site, and with the Menifee Town Center, we firmly believe we have found the heart of Menifee.”
The Krikorian complex, which is projected to open in the summer of 2015, will include 12 stadium seating luxury auditoriums, all outfitted with leather, fully reclining seats, in-theater food and beverage service, and state-of-the-art sound systems.
In addition to the movie screens, the Krikorian complex will feature a 16-lane bowling alley, a restaurant/sports bar with a 70-foot screen and luxury sofa seating, and a family entertainment center complete with private rooms for birthdays and other special events.
“We are creating a completely different entertainment experience than what’s out there in this area today,” Krikorian added.
Menifee Mayor Scott Mann, who announced the coming of the Krikorian complex during a recent city council meeting, had a hard time containing his delight about the coming attractions at the Menifee Town Center.
“I can’t wait for this complex to open and look forward to taking my family for dinner and a movie,” Mann said. “The investment these people are making in our community speaks volumes about their confidence in Menifee and the tremendous growth and maturation we have experienced since becoming a city just a few short years ago.”
