Movieland at Boulevard Square, Richmond’s first new theater in 30 years, is nearing completion.
n the past week, two large permanent signs have been erected along Boulevard and Leigh Street. The parking lot, with more than 800 spots, has recently been paved, and lighting has been installed. Workers were busy yesterday putting finishing touches on the theater’s lobby entrance.
Bow Tie Partners has spent more than $7 million this year to renovate the historic locomotive assembly plant into a 17-screen multiplex, according to cost estimates found in construction permits filed with the city. Local contractors CD Hall Construction and Northside Electric Company have done most of the work.
BizSense reported this month that Movieland plans to open in February.
