BLOOMINGTON, Minn. (Jan. 18, 2017) – CMX, a subsidiary of Cinemex, the sixth largest cinema chain in the world, will bring the VIP cinema experience to Mall of America in the fall of 2017. Opening on level 4, south, the 64,000-square-foot location will be the first CMX theater to open in the Midwest. Complete with cutting-edge audio technology, CMX will offer moviegoers the ultimate upscale and relaxing experience with high-end décor, oversized reclining seats, Grab & Go gourmet dining options and an exceptional assortment of wines and handcrafted cocktails.
“Our theater in Mall of America, the most iconic shopping mall and one of the most visited tourist attractions in the U.S. is a prime location for CMX as we continue our aggressive and strategic U.S. development,” notes Jaime Rionda, CEO of CMX. “Our CMX cinema will provide moviegoers an exceptional entertainment experience with the latest technology, comfort and gourmet dining.”
Construction will take approximately nine months to complete as the current theater space is completely overhauled to make way for a new design.
