It’s showtime for Mark Cuban’s Landmark Theatres, which will open a 30, 000-square-foot cinema at Durst’s Via 57 West, its pyramid-shaped rental tower in Midtown West.
The national chain, owned by Cuban and Todd Wagner, plans to have an eight-screen theater up and running by spring of 2017, the Wall Street Journal reported. Outfitted with leather electronic reclining seats, laser projection technology and a full bar made from Italian marble, the theater will also be available for post-screening parties and other events.
The theater located between West 57th and West 58th streets and 11th and 12th avenues, is among the first to open in the area over the past decade.
Cuban, a co-host of ABC’s “Shark Tank, ” is reportedly taking on an activist-investor role in Reading International, owner of the Angelika Film Center, the Minetta Lane Theatre and the Orpheum Theatre.
