Cinemark 10 Coming Soon to Portage Crossing?

Cuyahoga Falls officials have remained mum on the details of the proposed retail project; however, Cinemark's website could offer a big clue on what's to come.

Under the "Grand Openings" section of its website, Cinemark has posted news that a 10-screen movie theatre is headed to Cuyahoga Falls.

Could this be the same theatre city officials alluded to during a Nov. 19 City Council meeting?

Cuyahoga Falls Development Director Sue Truby and Cinemark couldn't be reached Friday to offer a definitive answer.  

Over the last several weeks, Mayor Don Robart and his staff have remained mum on Portage Crossing as they work with developer Bob Stark, of Stark Enterprises, to finalize the proposed $60 million retail project.

However, Robart did recently indicate an announcement may come sometime in December.

I hope this theater is going to have full security and will be designed to be safe from someone with a gun or a bomb. We do not need that sort of crime here in our city. Let them go somewhere else if that is what they are looking to do. Let's design this building to know that it is as safe as any movie theater in the country. Even if people have to pay a little more for extra security to know they will be safe while they are watching their movie. My wife had a cousin that died from a terrorist bomb in a public station. Her brother had been talking to him just a few hours before he died. The problem was there were a number of legs and they were not sure which one was his. So we need to be careful about this sort of stuff. Bush closed down those terrorist schools in Pakistan. But new schools open up all the time.

Well said, Dick. Time for Stark to put up or get out, and he can take the Adminstration with him. Truby says it's not a giveaway (because the ordinance is on hold and hasn't been reviewed or voted on YET!). Referred to as a credit and/or subsidy, but not a giveaway? Two council persons gave different figures. $75,000 for 10 years, or $70,000 for 15 years. Either way, we electric users will be picking up this. The city sure didn't give me an electric subsidy when I built in the Falls!

Does Robart's son, Michael, work for Stark? I have heard that he does. Seems inappropriate to say the least.

I don't see this on Cinemark's site anymore. And although I am sad to see Plaza close; it wasn't a good theater. Sound systems were poorly maintained, would cut out or even buzz. Screen sizes were small and not clear. I drive to the Cinemark in Macedonia when seeing movies where they benefit from a nice big clear/sharp screen and clean surround sound. For a comedy or drama, I'm happy with Regal. At least their stuff isn't broken. I have another friend that will only take his family to Cinemark.
