The unique look of the new iPic Theater in Mizner Park is turning heads.
The upscale movie theater set to open in May is still under construction. But the exterior is starting to take shape. A deep cherry wood frame covers one corner of the building. Several brightly colored and uniquely designed mosaic tiles decorate the hardwood panels.
A combination of wood, glass and metal complete the outdoor design and entrance to the theater.
This new look for Mizner Park is also a unique design unlike any other iPic Theater, said Hamid Hashemi, president and CEO of iPic Theaters.
“We are extremely excited to introduce the concept to marketplace and to see how the public will react to what we have in store for them at both iPic Theaters Mizner Park as well as our independent restaurant concept Tanzy launching this summer,” Hashemi said.
Hashemi declined to comment on the cost of the theater.
Boca Raton and Hallendale Beach will open new iPic Theaters this year. The theaters will offer restaurant and lounge services, electric reclining seats and a premium level seating option that comes with unlimited popcorn.
Moviegoers may pay $15-$25 for admission, although final prices have not been set.
In Boca Raton, the space that used to be a Sunrise Cinemas location will be transformed into a 43,000-square-foot, two-story iPic. The eight-screen theater will include an adjacent 7,000-square-foot restaurant and bar concept called Tanzy.
About 300 jobs will be created when both locations open, Hashemi said.
