PHOENIX — Harkins Theatres will implement luxury upgrades to their Gateway Pavilions Theatre.

The local theater company announced the $150 million project at their Avondale location will include reserved seating, electronic recliners, state-of-the-art laser projection systems, in-lobby bar, and upgrades to the lobby.

Additionally, it will implement a new CINE1 large format auditorium with Dolby Atmos 3D object-based sound and a refreshed interior finish.

President and CEO of Harkins Theatres, Mike Bowers, said in a press release on Thursday that Harkins looks to continuously reinvest in its theaters with ungraded technology.

“At the Gateway Pavilions, we own our land and our building, so it is important to us to continue to deliver for our guests by investing in and positioning this theater for the long term,” Bowers said.

The construction will begin in 2020, and the theater will remain open during that time.
