New Theatre & Show Fountain Coming to Renaissance

Malco Theatres and Outside the Lines issued the following press releases:

Malco Theatres is pleased to announce that construction has begun on its 6-screen boutique theatre development in Ridgeland, Mississippi.

The cinema, located at Renaissance at Colony Park, is scheduled to open in the late summer of 2019. It will anchor the second phase of the development and be located at the entrance to the new synchronized water and music feature.

The new building will encompass approximately 25,000 square feet and will sport six all-luxury recliner auditoriums with reserved seating, state-of-the-art Dolby 7.1 digital surround sound & Dolby® Atmos™ audio system in select auditoriums. Patrons will also have access to a grill option that will include gourmet quick-casual selections, as well as a full bar with beer, wine and cocktails.

Additional amenities such as reloadable gift cards, birthday parties, group discounts (select days and times), corporate rentals and worship space will also be available. For added customer convenience, lobby kiosks will allow for online/advance ticketing redemption, so patrons can “skip the box office line”.

“Malco is very excited about bringing a state of the art, cinema to the Ridgeland community. The end product will be something the community will be very proud to have and enjoy for many years to come”, said Jimmy Tashie, Executive VP of Theatre Operations.

“Our emphasis has always been on quality and we have always stressed the importance of staying ''ahead of the curve'' in sight and sound technology. Our family has been in this business for over 100 years, and we've always embraced any new idea that enhances the moviegoing experience for our patrons. We believe these new amenities will add to the already fun and exciting experience of going out to the movies.''

“Renaissance at Colony Park is pleased and fortunate to have the Malco brand as a part of its merchandising mix. It will truly enrich the entertainment component of the Renaissance experience”, said Andrew Mattiace, co-owner and developer of the center.

If you look behind the fountain you’ll notice the weird bridge structure/awning infront of a Cspire is gone. Are they demolishing that?

Anonymous said...

No, the bridge to nowhere will lead to somewhere, finally. It's being extended and then steps down

Will they be showing the same movies as at Grandview less than a mile down the road? Could you buy tickets for this theater at Grandview? Since Northpark Cinema closed does Malco think they have a monopoly on movies in the North metro?

Great news for Renaissance! Everywhere that gets a movie theater ends up doing wonderfully!

Will this affect the Costco development?

Didn't we already have a movie theatre in Ridgeland? Yep, that worked out well.

Anonymous said...

@10:49am Yes! That's what they have. A monopoly on movie theaters in North metro.

Lifestyles Of The Ridgeland Rich.. said...

You plebians need not even be concerned. This will be a very artsy, high-dollar, silk-stocking venue. Don't come anywhere near the ticket emporium smelling like you've just left Outback or Shuckers. From sixty feet off, cameras will scan the number of beads your lady is wearing and will carefully check to ensure your trousers are zipped and that you're not wearing a crotch-sock. This is not for the popcorn and small-drink crowd. If you're even beginning to contemplate 'how much are a ticket?', get the hell outa here now.

I am amazed, or maybe not. You people continually fuss about there being nothing nice in the metro area, yet here comes a venue very few cities in the region can boast about having and all you do is make fun of it. Try viewing a movie at Eastover, or anywhere in Jackson for that matter. If you don't like nice things then shut up and enjoy your miserable life locked behind window bars.

Perfect. A big Costco and a new luxury movie theater sooo close. I can shop till I drop into a recliner at the new movie theater. PS. I am buying my movie stacks at Costco.

Cynical Sam said...

@11:25 AM - as you cynically already know, the theater at Northpark closed because of all of the riff-raff from Jackson causing problems, and thus chasing away the law-abiding paying customers.

E. County Line Road businesses will continue to close and migrate further north, thanks to Baby Choks beloved Jacktown thugs.

The Renaissance is the best retail development in Mississippi and Rivals any in adjoining states. This will only make it better. Costco is better than Sams any day.

Still no movie theater in Jackson proper. Sure wish the District movie theater concept had materialized.

I like the Renaissance, but I equally like Dogwood in Flowood. Glad we have both options.

The District will struggle because it's in Jackson. They are already losing the Mexican restaurant.

Good to see our tax dollars hard at work. All Mississippians can be proud of this beautiful monument. I expect people will be coming in from all over the globe to view its greatness!

Great news!
And The District is doing great as well. Issues beyond their control and a new restaurant already in the works!

Very Nice. Looking forward to the experience of going to a great theater!
Wonderful for Jackson & Mississississippi.

Love the wonderful restaurants in the Renaissance.

Makes us look less backwoods & all back of the bus!

'Try viewing a movie at Eastover, or anywhere in Jackson for that matter.'

Why would anyone try that? I have a 9042p HHDDTTVV TwinProp YeTiCooled 122 inch screen and an audio system with 43.41 DeblyTHCSurround-A-BOOM and 47 speakers in my garage (but the good system is in the TheatreRoom, along with a keg fridge and popcorn machine). Me and the boys can hold a Will Farrell movie marathon and watch the Portuguese soccer championship on split-screen. We can't stand soccer and have no idea where Portugu is, but shit, after enough craft beer, we don't care. Em, what where we talking about? Oh, yeah, theaters...can I get drunk, plop down in my LazyFatAssBoy and watch that shit in my underwear? No? Probably just a bunch of that Hollywood liberal crap anyway...MAGA!

Anybody that builds a movie theater in 2019 is a total moron. Dinosaur.

Luvin' On Rankin... said...

Who the hell could love Flowood and the hodge-podge of traffic lights and storefronts for three miles along 'Dogwood'. All they are lacking is another Barnett Body Shop to handle all the fender benders.

If you're one of the three people in Rankin, Scott and Madison Counties who does not already have a stack of orange cones behind the shed in your back yard, pick yours up any day at Dogwood. While supplies last (which should be six years at least).

A lifestyle shopping center. Hrrrmmm. It’s a real nice place and all, but most folks don’t go shopping for the architecture.

I wonder what all of this stuff like the Madison Kroger etc. is going to look like in 50 years.

Anonymous said...

@4:19 AM - In 50 years, do tell, as you will be about 62-65 then?

Anonymous said...

4:19 - In 1999 we wondered what Madison Kroger would look like in ten years. So, they leveled it and started over. Ten years from NOW it will have a helicopter pad on the top deck so Mary can visit from Natchez.

February 23, 2019 at 1:20 AM You should get out more. This is actually a new thing. Seems you're the dinosaur. Give a movie a try, then you won't have to be up until all hours typing on a blog site.

The District wants to replace Cantina Laredo. Plenty of business but poor service. Already released to a new concept restaurant.

Look at that photo-illustration again. It suddenly becomes Pearl with the Malco sign.

As usual, another half-assed example of what passes in Mississippi as good design. This time it's a dead-mall version of Vegas. Oh, wait..there's a Water Feature! Klassy!

Here's the solution, y'all can just stay your a-- in Pearl then! Problem solved.

The Northpark 14 movie theatre did not close due to "riff-raff" it closed simply because it was dated and didn't produce the volume needed to update it. City of Ridgeland has recently approved renovations to the cinema from a new operator B&B Theatres who plans to convert it into a luxury theater with a bar, grill, and reclinable seating.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Trollfest '07

Jackson Jambalaya is the home of Trollfest '07. Catch this great event which promises to leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag.
