REGINA, SASKATCHEWAN, December 1, 2016 – Harvard Developments Inc. (Harvard), and Forster Projects Inc. (Forster), Regina-based real estate development partners, are pleased to announce that Landmark Cinemas Canada (Landmark) will bring its premium-powered recliner seating movie-going experience to Aurora, Regina’s newest regional retail site located in East Regina.
“We are honoured to have Landmark Cinemas, a leading Canadian movie exhibition company, choose Aurora as its first location to open in the Regina marketplace. Scheduled for a Spring of 2018 opening, this new to market tenant reinforces our commitment to deliver a unique experience to the residents of Regina and region, making Aurora a premier shopping destination,” said Blair Forster, President, Forster Projects. “Totalling approximately 750,000 square feet of retail uses at full build out, Aurora will offer a variety of large and small format stores providing a wide range of retail goods and services to satisfy everyday shopping needs all in one convenient location. Entertainment and dining uses will be a major focus of the initial phase of the development, with the new Landmark Cinema providing the necessary anchor draw. Leasing interest in Aurora remains strong and we hope to have more announcements in the upcoming months.”
Landmark Cinemas will offer premium-powered La-Z-Boy® style recliner seating, without the premium price, in all 8 Auditoriums. Premium-powered recliner seating necessitates a reduction in the overall theatre capacity, providing a significant increase in personal space and a more relaxing, disruption free movie-going experience. Complimentary Reserved seating, will also be part of the theatre’s premium offering.
“Experiencing a movie on the big screen, in the comfort of a powered recliner seat is an incredible entertainment experience,” offered Bill Walker, Chief Operating Officer, Landmark Cinemas. “We are thrilled to bring this concept to Aurora and are confident that movie lovers in Regina and its surrounding regions will make this their movie-going destination.”
As the dominant urban shopping centre approved for the next phase of Regina’s growth, the 68-acre Aurora site is located in one of the city’s fastest growing trade areas on Victoria Avenue East at the new Trans-Canada Highway Bypass, making it easily accessible to Regina residents and communities outside the city.
