The Premiere Cinemas in Plant City stadium cinema has long been a local favorite, but its best days are yet to come. Premiere announced today the facility is getting a major makeover according to Director Sonya Dunn. The theatre is closing temporarily to allow construction workers to effect the transformation, as the cinema has been fully re-imagined into a luxurious boutique recliner-seated facility, full service pizza and wings, an adult bar and bottomless concession refills on every visit.


The theatre will be closed from Monday August 12th and reopen in its new format mid-November.  "We are so excited to see all the updates being made," said Ms. Dunn. "The free refills are going to be a big hit with our guests, and they're going to love our new leather reclining seats and reserved-seating."


Plant City Premiere LUX Cine & Pizza Pub will feature 8 auditoriums complete with state-of-the-art luxury recliners. Guests will be able to reserve their seats directly through the website at, at the self-serve ticketing kiosks or through their favorite smiling cashier at the concession stand. The seats come packed with features including full recline, private swivel snack tray and even a USB phone charger where you can plug up, turn off and leave with a fully recharged phone.


In the lobby, Premiere is also adding Dippin' Dots ice cream, meaning the "ice cream of the future" is here now. Guests will also notice something else completely new, Premiere's full-featured Pizza Pub and bar which serves fresh gourmet pizza, wings and assorted appetizer favorites, for in-lobby or in-theatre dining during the movie. Servers will even bring your order right to the theatre for a one-stop movie/dining experience.


Premiere CEO Gary Moore added that the update is part of Premiere's global lux recliner initiative to continually enhance the movie-going experience. "We've been busy converting pretty much all of our cinemas across the country to recliners and the response has been significant. Given the choice, I think everyone prefers recliner seating, it's transforming the way people enjoy their movies these days."


Premiere is located in Lake Walden Square Centre at 220 West Alexander in Plant City. Showtimes will be posted on PCC's website prior to the cinema's reopening for advance-ticket purchases. For further information, please contact us at
