Weingarten Realty is proud to announce the debut of Sundance Cinemas to both Los Angeles and the Weingarten portfolio. The theater will be located at the newly acquired 8000 Sunset Strip on the corner of Sunset Blvd & Crescent Heights Blvd in the heart of Hollywood.
The grand opening date of the completely refurbished Sundance Sunset Cinema is set for August 31, 2012. Sundance Cinemas President and CEO Paul Richardson said “The new Sundance Sunset Cinema is going to be a gem located in the heart of Hollywood in Los Angeles. It’s long been a dream to build a theatre in my home town, and I’m certain that this will be a place that patrons will enjoy as much as I will.” Programming will specialize in American Independent and foreign language titles.
Sundance Cinemas’ remodel is rustic, elegant and comfortable with the latest digital presentation systems, all reserved stadium seating with plush rockers and tablettes and a bar serving beer and wine which may be brought into the theatre during +21 shows. The experience has been expanded to include an upstairs lounge and a patio where patrons are invited to chat, drink and eat before or after the show.
Weingarten Realty is honored Sundance Sunset Cinema will be the first tenant to open at 8000 Sunset Strip since the purchase of the property in late June. We are looking forward to a long lasting partnership. Malibu Fish Grill and Pei Wei Asian Market are currently under construction and are scheduled to open this fall, joining Burke Williams, CB2 and Trader Joe’s.
