Santikos announces new theater and family entertainment center
Santikos Entertainment today announced plans for a new theater and Family Entertainment Center to be located on Interstate 35 in Cibolo, Texas.
The project will be located at the Southeast corner of Interstate 35 and Wiederstein Road and will include a full range of theater and family entertainment amenities. The new theater will include the latest in laser digital technology, Dolby ATMOS sound systems and luxury recliner seating. Additional amenities will include bowling, a high energy sports bar, as well as restaurant and arcade facilities.
“John Santikos was a pioneer in the development of theater and family entertainment venues in San Antonio, and this new location will carry forward that spirit of grandeur and innovation” said Santikos Entertainment CEO, David Holmes. “ We look forward to offering the ultimate cinema experience along with an array of family entertainment options that will make this new location an exciting destination for entertainment seekers of all ages.”
The new venue will serve one of the fastest growing communities in Texas, and will be a part of a larger master planned development that will include retail, restaurants and luxury apartment amenities. “The Santikos business model is unique in that the economic benefits from the operation of our theaters are channeled back into the community through contributions, programs and grants benefiting local charities, administered by the San Antonio Area Foundation”, said Holmes. “We look forward to bringing this unique business model to this fast growing area of our community.”
