The old Xpect Discounts in North Haven, Connecticut was demolished for a 48,000 Square Foot Dicks Sporting Goods.

This article appeared in The Meriden-Record Journal on July 6th, 2015. It also talks about the new Cinemark Theater opening on  July 22nd.

NORTH HAVEN — The new Cinemark NextGen theater on Universal Drive promises to be an entertainment blockbuster when it opens July 22, a marketing manager said this week.

The Rave Cinemas closed recently to make way for the 57,202-square-foot entertainment complex behind it. Cinemark, of Plano, Texas, bought Rave Cinemas last year. The former theater will be demolished to make way for four new businesses.

Cinemark estimates it will spend $16.2 million for wall-to-wall screens in all 14 auditoriums, digital projection and real 3-D capability in several, enhanced sound, a cafeteria-style concession stand, and Cinemark XD, a massive-screen extreme digital auditorium with luxury lounge recliners and 60-plus-speaker digital surround sound.

The new cinema will show movies and live events, including boxing matches and Metropolitan Opera productions, according to James Meredith, Cinemark’s vice president of marketing.

“All cinemas have enhanced digital surround sound, so it’s a great opportunity for people in the area to enjoy high-quality movies and other events,” Meredith said.

During site plan approval, Cinemark also agreed to an easement that will allow for development of the Quinnipiac Marsh Trail at the rear of the property.

Last year, the town’s Planning and Zoning Commission approved a special permit to allow Cinemark to serve alcoholic beverages at a lounge inside the complex. Customers cannot consume alcoholic beverages inside the theaters, but there will be a lounge where they can enjoy beer and wine.

“The plan is really a good one,” commission member James Giulietti said at the time of the approvals. “The premises as they sit today are largely in disrepair and the parking lot has been in disrepair for years.”

Across the street, developers are working on razing the former Xpect Discount store and renovating the 339,000-square-foot- Home Depot Plaza.

“The new building under construction will be occupied by Dick’s Sporting Goods and is expected to open later this fall,” said Nicholas Brown, vice president of development for the northeast region of Kimco Realty.

“The shopping center will also receive various site improvements and a façade renovation.”

The center is anchored by BJ’s Wholesale Club and Home Depot. Plans call for the demolition of Xpect and to replace it with a new 48,000-square-foot prototypical Dick’s Sporting Goods store.

The façades for the balance of the non-anchored stores are being renovated, and various other site improvements are also being constructed, including a renovated pylon sign, new site lighting, additional landscaping and a new parking lot.

Construction began in March 2015 and the total cost is $8.3 million, according to the Kimco website.

First Selectman Mike Freda mentioned the town’s commercial sector and the Cinemark Theater when accepting a Celebrate CT! award from the Connecticut Economic Resource Center last November.

“Look at these projects and see a lot is happening in North Haven,” Freda said at the time. “I spend a lot of time on economic development and meet with developers, commercial real estate agents and retailers on a regular basis to create opportunities and bring them to positive outcomes.”

Showcase Cinemas got bought out by Rave a few years ago. Then Cinemark bought them out, but the Rave in Southington (Milldale or Plantsville) and Berlin (Kensington) were sold to Starplex.

Not all Showcase Cinemas and Multiplex Cinemas were sold.  National Amusements still has Showcase Cinemas, Cinema De Lux, and Multiplex Cinemas locations in the Metro NYC-Long Island area (as Cinema De Lux or Multiplex Cinemas), Rhode Island, Connecticut, Massachusetts, and the Springdale 18: Cinema De Lux (in Springdale, OH), and Edgewater Multiplex Cinemas (in Edgewater), NJ
