A new state-of-the-art movie theater at the Boulevard mall is expected to attract more people to the centrally located complex.

If officials have their way, some of those visitors could even be tourists meandering over from the Strip and students from UNLV. Galaxy Theatres will open a nine-screen luxury movie theater complex April 5 at the mall at 3528 S. Maryland Parkway.

“This is going to be a luxurious movie experience with reclining seats, an available bar and a café with lots of food options,” said Timo Kuusela, the mall’s general manager. “We think it’s a great fit for the locals and the UNLV students in the area, and we hope to even pull some tourist business from the Strip.”

The complex, which will be known as Galaxy Theatres Luxury Boulevard, will be the third Galaxy location in the Las Vegas Valley, though it will be the first with the new Sony Digital Cinema package. The dual-laser Sony 4K technology projects on a screen four stories tall and seven stories wide and will be available on one of the mall’s nine screens.
