Caruso taps Cinepolis to revive classic Bay Theatre in Palisades project
The classic Bay Theatre, designed by S. Charles Lee in 1948, will be making an encore at developer Rick Caruso’s Palisades Village project on Swathmore Avenue.
Caruso announced exhibitor Cinépolis USA will be reviving the luxury theater brand and resurrecting its marquee sign at the complex .
The newly designed theater will have five screening rooms with 40 to 60 leather reclining seats, reserved seating and call buttons for food and bar service, Deadline reported.
Palisades Village is slated to open this summer, with other tenants including Vintage Grocers and Bentons Sports Shop.
It’s not the first time Caruso has partnered with Mexico-based cinema chain Cinépolis. The development firm opened a Cinépolis at the Westlake Promenade shopping center in 2012. [Deadline] — Subrina Hudson
