Upscale Theater and More Coming To Queensgate

Posted: Updated:
RICHLAND, WA- There is a lot of development in the Queensgate area of Richland these days, and some more major developments are making their way in now. Not only an upscale theater, but a new hotel and restaurant area will be built too. 

The City of Richland and Amara Development Company announced Thursday the new Fairchild Cinemas will be right behind Gold's Gym in Queensgate. You can expect to check out the movies by Thanksgiving of this year.

The Home 2 Suites by Hilton will open by mid-2016, just in time for tourist season. Five acres of restaurant and retail space is all high end and right next door.

Amara Development said this will be the ultimate "one stop shop".

Brett Keller works at Amara and explained this is, "Making a really gutsy move into a market, the higher scale market, where every seat caters to the client. To the customer, power reclining seats, better speakers, better projections, better projectors on the sound, it makes a difference when you go to the movie theater."

Ticket prices have not been set for the 1100 seat theater, but better quality food will be available, including a large dining area inside. Alcohol will not be served at this theater.

You can expect to see these buildings start to take shape within the next few weeks.
