Emagine Entertainment, Inc. is opening the new Emagine Batavia movie theatre on Thursday, June 1st.
The grand opening will feature a showing of 2018 HALLOWEEN in honor of the film’s 5th Anniversary. “Michael Myers” actor James Jude Courtney will be in attendance for the opening.
The venue, formally the Randall 15 IMAX, was purchased by Emagine in the Spring of 2020 and has been renovated into an upscale movie theatre with 12 state-of-the art auditoriums which includes 2 private screening rooms, a large format EMX screen and a SUPER EMX screen, all equipped with 4k projections and feature luxury heated recliners and cuddle chairs. In addition, there is a High Roller Room which features a full-service bar, shuffleboard, video games, pool tables, large screen televisions, and four Brunswick Duckpin Social® bowling lanes featuring Spark®, the first immersive, interactive scoring experience in the bowling industry that is making its U.S. debut at Emagine Batavia. The new theatre will be open to the public at 10am.
The Super EMX auditorium offers the largest Cinemascope® screen in the state of Illinois, measuring over 96 feet wide and 53 feet tall (the size of an NBA court flipped on its side). The 4K laser-projected image will be paired with a Dolby Atmos® immersive sound system with 70 channels of sound. Final preparations on the Super EMX are still underway and the auditorium is expected to open in the coming weeks. In the meantime, guests will be able to enjoy all the other amenities at the theatre starting June 1st.
Emagine Batavia will be showing a variety of films including ABOUT MY FATHER, FAST X, GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 3, SPIDER-MAN: ACROSS THE SPIDER-VERSE, THE BOOGEYMAN, THE LITTLE MERMAID, THE MACHINE, THE SUPER MARIO BROS. MOVIE.
In addition, fans of HALLOWEEN will have the chance to purchase tickets to attend the VIP HALLOWEEN Q&A screening event taking place at 7pm Thursday evening. Attendees can participate in a Q&A with James Jude Courtney just prior to a showing of HALLOWEEN. Tickets for all movies and the VIP HALLOWEEN Q&A event are now available at www.Emagine-Entertainment.com.
