McCandless Cinemark set to open Sept. 19

Tuesday, Aug. 26, 2014, 12:54 p.m.

The new movie theater in McCandless Crossing is officially scheduled to open Sept. 19, according to officials with Cinemark.

The opening of the theater has been delayed several times. Construction plans were announced in 2011, and the theater originally was scheduled to open in fall 2012.

In January, Selma, N.C.-based AdVenture Development LLC said the 12-screen Cinemark theater, which will have stadium seating and 100-percent digital projection, would open in May. But in May, the firm said the theater's construction would be finished in time for a mid-August opening.

McCandless Crossing is a mixed-use project being built on 130 acres on the east and west sides of McKnight Road, near the Duncan Avenue intersection.

When complete, the $100 million project will include stores, restaurants, banks, hotels, offices and 53 townhouses.
