A complete remodel and overhaul is now complete at the Tomball Premiere Cinemas venue in the Four Corners shopping center at SH 249 and FM 2920.
The remodel was part of a complete renovation of the entire shopping center.
“It was gutted all the way down to the studs,” said Joel Davis, Premiere’s Chief Operating Officer and a Tomball native. “The construction team came in and did a great job. We are happy to see the entire center has come back.”
“The whole shopping center is turned inside-out,” said Tomball General Manager Jennifer Mendoza. “It’s amazing and something we can all be really proud of.”
New amenities in the theater include high-back rocking chairs, a new party room, 3D capability, two new lobbies and a state of the art concession area.
There is also a new auditorium, bringing the total number of screens available to seven.
The new theater has a 100 percent digital projector, which allows the theater more flexibility and better quality.
“It’s great technology,” Davis said. “It’s always in focus, can’t scratch it and it is never off frame.”
The technology allows for greater freedoms, especially during midnight movie premieres. If the theater sells out on a screen during a premeire, the movie can be loaded to another screen quickly, allowing another auditorium to be filled.
The theater, which was originally built in 1986, also has new food and beverage equipment, fresh-made cotton candy and a Dippin Dots ice cream cart. There are also several feet of self-service areas where guests can butter their own popcorn, among other things.
“People have driven here from miles away to get Dippin Dots already,” Mendoza said.
The theater is donating a portion of its grand opening proceeds to the Variety Children’s Charity of Texas, which helps special needs children throughout the state by providing funding for therapy, walkers, wheelchairs, prosthetic limbs among other experiences.
“It’s a great place for people to take their family,” Davis said. “There’s nothing like a good movie and some popcorn.”
