The renovated Frontier Village cinema will reopen next week as the Picture Show Movie Theatre.
Cinema owner Jeff Stedman of Colorado Springs has invested $2 million in the cinema, which is located above the Frontier Village shopping center on Highway 69.
The theater features 10 screens and seats a maximum of 750 people. The Frontier Village cinema will be the eighth in the Picture Show chain. Stedman has owned the company for nine and a half years and previously was CFO of Cinemark for more than 20 years.
Picture Show will have a grand opening for the public Wednesday following a private ribbon-cutting ceremony on Tuesday.
The opening follows months of renovation work, Stedman said.”We have totally redone every aspect of the theater,” Stedman said. “We are adding state-of-the-art seating, which is the best of the industry.” The seats will be electric reclining chairs, Stedman said. “We put in all new sound equipment as well as all new digital projection,” Stedman said, adding that the cinema is equipped for 3D projection.
In addition to featuring first-run movies, the Picture Show will offer beer and wine bar and an expanded menu. The concession stand also features hamburgers, French fries, chicken tenders, pizza and ice cream.
I’m excited for this new chapter for the theater and hope only the best for it’s success.
