FLOURTOWN, PA—Dallas-based Movie Tavern has begun work on a new eight-screen theatre here at the Flourtown Shopping Center at 1842 Bethlehem Pike.

The facility scheduled to open in early 2014 will be the firm’s second theatre in the Delaware Valley, joining its existing complex—the Providence Town Center Movie Tavern—in Collegeville, PA. The deal at the Flourtown Shopping Center was struck with Federal Realty Investment Trust.

“We are very excited to bring Movie Tavern to Flourtown, as part of our plan to increase our presence in the Philadelphia market after we found such tremendous success in Collegeville,” says John H. Hersker, president and CEO of Movie Tavern. “We look forward to providing families in Flourtown and surrounding cities the movie-going experience they deserve with offerings that merge both cutting edge technology and modern convenience with great value.”

Movie Tavern specializes in creating an in-theatre dining experience that utilizes a chef inspired menu and offerings from a full bar, where guests can order food and drinks from their seats throughout the show. Full food and beverage service are also available at the properties. Features of the new build will also include luxury reclining loungers in every auditorium and all-reserved purchase seating, company officials say.
