Cinemark USA Debuts 12-Screen Theater in Mansfield, Texas
Commercial Contractor Bob Moore Construction and Kossman Development Company Deliver First Ever Cinema to Growing Dallas / Fort Worth Suburb
ARLINGTON, TEXAS - July 13, 2005 - Cinemark USA, Inc. is one of the largest motion picture exhibitors in North America, with 302 theatres and 3,254 screens in 33 U.S. States and 13 other countries. Their newest theater is a stunning 12-screen facility in Mansfield, Texas, which opened to the public on June 29.
The new Cinemark 12 is the company's 18th theater in the Dallas / Fort Worth area. It is the first theater ever in Mansfield and is expected to be a centerpiece of this dynamic community's expansion. The theater is located in Mansfield Town Center West, a 39 acre retail and office complex owned and operated by Kossman Development Company in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Bob Moore Construction Company was the general contractor and Beck Architecture in Dallas was the architect for this project.
The new 42,265 square-foot theater features a large concession area and seating for 2,010 patrons. The exterior features a dramatic full-height stone veneer, the first time this finish has ever been used on a Cinemark theater. All 12 screens employ top quality Christie projectors, wall-to-wall screens and Dolby digital sound; the Cinemark 12 provides "the best seat in town" with the most modern version of stadium seating on the market, including high-backed rocking seats.
"It turned out great," said Chris Cline, Project Manager for Cinemark USA. "We're very happy with the work Bob Moore Construction did. The superintendents and everyone involved were very professional and the quality of workmanship is just outstanding."
"We worked with Cinemark and our subcontractors from day one to build a sense of pride," said Curt Hellen, Senior Project Manager for Bob Moore Construction. "I think it's telling that when the workers who built this theater were invited to bring their families for a sneak preview before the grand opening, over 1,200 people participated. I saw a lot of pride and excitement in the community, in Kossman and Cinemark and in our subs. That resulted in a superb project we were able to deliver ahead of schedule."
While the schedule originally called for the theater to open July 10 Bob Moore Construction Company completed the project almost two weeks early, in time for the release of the summer blockbuster War of the Worlds and a special grand opening celebration on June 28.
"It was a big deal for us that Bob Moore Construction could get the theater done ahead of schedule, in time for the movie's release," Cline said. "We originally planned to open July 10 but the City of Mansfield wanted us to open by July 4. Then with the release of War of the Worlds, we wanted to move it up to June 29. It meant a lot to us and to the city and everyone else that we could do that."
