February 3, 2020

A new 33,368 square-foot Cinépolis Luxury Cinemas location will open this week in San Diego's North County, featuring push-button in-auditorium waiter service, leather reclining seats, and the debut of exhibitor’s new gourmet menu available in eight upscale auditorium theaters.

Cinépolis was founded in Mexico in 1971 and opened its first U.S. location in Del Mar in July 2011. Today, the company has positioned itself as the world’s 2nd largest movie theater circuit in terms of attendance, operating 831 cinema complexes and 6,451 digital screens in 17 countries worldwide. It was the first cinema exhibitor in the world to pioneer the concept of luxury movie theaters, establishing the first luxury theater experience in 1999 in Mexico City.

"We opened our first U.S. cinema in San Diego, so it is particularly rewarding to launch our tenth California location here," said Luis Olloqui, Chief Executive Officer of Cinépolis Luxury Cinemas. "We’re excited to introduce our latest building design, featuring an expanded bar area and new chef driven menu, to a community that has been so supportive of us over the last 8 years. We’re excited to continue bringing our luxury movie-going experience to the area and complement the original Paseo Real location, which allows us to provide an increase in cinema viewing options."

The newest San Diego location of Cinépolis Luxury Cinemas opens on Friday, February 7 within La Costa Town Square in Carlsbad.  The eight-screen, 570-seat luxury concept will celebrate the official opening with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 11am, and the local community is invited to enjoy music, prizes, giveaways and more. Theater auditoriums at Cinépolis Luxury Cinemas La Costa Town Square will offer guests fully reclining leather seats, a full gourmet menu and in-theater waiter service available via the push of a button. The new menu will feature more chef-driven selections, including gluten-free and vegetarian options. Guests can expect dishes ranging from double dip shrimp and lobster tacos to seasonal salads, fresh pizzas, Wagyu burgers and freshly baked cookies to order.
