CMX Market, an innovative concept developed by CMX Cinemas, combines a luxury movie-going experience with refined CMX Market self-serve culinary and beverage selections.

Fresh from scratch chef prepared meals include only the best local and seasonal ingredients for our diners.
This unique entertainment destination will also feature an immersive center bar with handcrafted specialty cocktails and an extensive wine and spirits list provided by professional mixologists.

Our guests will be astounded by the new movie-going experience that will satisfy all family members’ preferred food and drink selection,” said Frank Stryjewski, COO of CMX Cinemas. “This is not your typical movie theatre; it’s a redefined cinema experience”.
The 64,000-square foot, 13 screen theatre will feature three auditoriums of Real D 3D technology and all theatres will have Dolby 7.1 audio technology to enhance the sound experience.
