PHOENIX — Harkins unveiled a multimillion-dollar remodel of its Tempe Marketplace theater last week.

The renovations and upgraded amenities include plush leather and electronic recliner chairs, a new CINE XL large format with a curved screen, laser projection and an in-lobby bar, according to a press release.

The theater, located at 2000 E. Rio Salado Parkway, also features updated lobby finishes and Dolby Atmos 360-degree multidimensional sound.

“The CINE XL auditorium with its giant screen, laser projection and immersive Dolby Atmos sound is the premiere way for moviegoers to enjoy one of the year’s most anticipated movies, ‘Top Gun: Maverick,'” Dan Harkins, owner of Harkins Theatres, said in the release.

The renovations come just in time for summer movie releases, including “Elvis,” “Jurassic World Dominion” and “Lightyear.”
