Colony Square in Midtown is getting a movie theater as part of an ongoing multi-million renovation project.
A nine-screen, 426-seat luxury iPic Theater, along with a 6,700-square-foot destination bar/restaurant from James Beard Award-winning Chef Sherry Yard is planned for a 2020 opening at Colony Square.
The cinema will feature nine auditoriums showing the latest Hollywood blockbusters as well as live shows including magic, comedy, along with gaming competitions and other “iPic experiential ticketed events.” The cinema will also have those big, comfy reclining seats with pillows and blankets. At the touch of a button, a server will bring food and drinks to your seat.
“We have had our eye on the Atlanta market for five years now, and the Colony Square redevelopment project allowed us to launch the iPic brand experience into one of the top ten DMAs in the country,” said Hamid Hashemi, President and CEO of iPic Entertainment, in a media statement.
Upon completion by owners North American Properties, the reimagined Colony Square will comprise approximately 260,000 square feet of retail space, 262 luxury residences, 940,000 square feet of office space and a 466-room hotel.
