Developers plan to build a 14-screen movie multiplex theater in Lexington next year, which, if completed next fall as anticipated, will bring to market the largest cinema house in the county at a historic landmark location.
Groundbreaking for the 55,000-square-foot movie complex at Corley Mill Retail Shopping Development is planned for January, and developers said Friday they hope to open the 2,800-seat cinema by late October or early November 2012.
The movie complex will part of the Corley Mill Retail Shopping center planned for the eastern end of the Town of Lexington on U.S. 378.
The complex will be built on what once was the site of a saw mill operated by the areas well-known Corley family, about two miles west of the Interstate 20-U.S. 378 interchange.
The theater, which Stone Theatres Management has not formally named, will be Lexingtons second movie complex, joining Pastime Pavilion Cinema located at S.C. 6 and U.S. 378, which was built and formerly operated by the current owners of the planned new complex.
