Downtown Flushing in Queens has not had a movie theater in nearly 30 years. That will all change as of 2018.
The South Korean cinema chain, CJ CGV, will open a theater as part of the brand-new, 1.2 million square-foot development called Tangram. According to a recent report by Commercial Observer, the lease for the space was signed for “20 years with options.” So it won’t be going away anytime soon!
The movie screen will extend further than a regular theater’s, and you’ll be able to experience the flick through “motion vibration and environmental effects [like] wind and rain.”
Here’s what the screens will probably look like:
And what we can possibly expect the theater itself to look like:
Real Estate groups F&T Group and SCG America have partnered up to develop Tangram. Along with the 4D multiplex, which will make up 34,000 square-feet, the monstrous building will include a hotel, 312 luxury condo units, 48 office units, a food hall, and a retail area of 225,000 square-feet.
When it comes to the new development, giant is an understatement. It’s practically a small city all on its own!
Plans for CGV Cinemas opening are currently set for late 2018. Not only will it be the first theater in flushing in several decades, but it will be the first of its kind for NYC.
