Construction of a high-end movie theater that will offer cocktails, appetizers and dinner along with movies is scheduled to begin early next year at Hyde Park Village in South Tampa.
The new movie theater will be built on the site of the former Sunrise Cinema.
Cobb Theatres plans to begin construction in January of a CineBistro theater that will have six screens, reserved seating and dining tables. Cocktails and appetizers will be available in the lobby bar. Patrons will be able to order a meal that will be served at the table before the movie starts.
Attendance at the theater is for customers 21 or older, and each movie screen will have about 85 seats.
Developers are shooting for a summer opening, Wasserman Real Estate, owners of Hyde Park Village, says in a written announcement released today.
The theater will be able to handle small theater productions and corporate meetings.
Hyde Park Village covers seven blocks at West Swann and South Dakota avenues.
