Harkins Theatres announced its plans to open a new 12-screen luxury movie theater at the Northglenn Marketplace in late 2020. This will be the catalyst anchor tenant to revitalize and re-energize the center. The new 55,000-square-foot theater will be located on the northern end of the center in the area presently occupied by Bed Bath and Beyond.
Bed Bath and Beyond has signed a lease to relocate to the former 25,100-square-foot Borders building on the east side of the Marketplace. They plan to start interior and exterior improvements and move in late summer or early fall. Once relocated, construction will begin on the theater.
In late 2018, Hutensky Capital Partners (HCP) of Hartford, Conn., purchased 439,000 square feet at the Marketplace for $48 million. HCP and the Northglenn Urban Renewal Authority (NURA) entered into a public/private redevelopment agreement to invest in the redevelopment and stabilization of the center. “We are bringing Harkins Theatres to Northglenn Marketplace because we believe it will add an exciting entertainment component to the property as part of our effort to deliver a first class tenant line-up to the market,” said Brad Hutensky, founder and CEO of HCP.
Founded in 1933, Harkins Theatres is a family-owned and operated business. They are the largest independently-owned movie exhibitor in the country with more than 500 screens. “We are excited to be able to bring the most advanced state-of-the art theater to Northglenn, Colorado,” said Dan Harkins, owner and executive chairman of Harkins Theatres. “It will include our latest and greatest amenities and programs that we are thrilled to share with a new community of movie-lovers.”
“The theater will be a game changer for the Marketplace,” said Rosie Garner, NURA chair. “Once again, NURA is a collaborative partner in re-energizing another of Northglenn's iconic retail locations.”
Mayor Dodge expressed, “We are excited that our plans for this phase of our dynamic entertainment destination are coming to fruition. It will position the Northglenn Marketplace as a regional destination.”
