CMX Cinemas, the eighth largest movie theater chain in the U.S. with 36 theaters across America, will open its first New York City outpost, CMX CinéBistro New York 62nd, on Thursday, October 18, 2018.

The new location at 400 East 62nd Street will bring CMX’s signature VIP movie-going experience to the heart of the Upper East Side, complete with world-class, in-theater dining and luxurious reclining loveseats, all within a distinctively intimate setting.

CMX renovated the existing six-story theater to complement the neighborhood and provide the community with a unique and intimate theater experience they can enjoy with their family and friends. Maintaining the integrity of the building’s original structure, the newly enhanced theater reflects a modern and minimalist design, featuring rich textures and bold fixtures that embody the spirit and passion of New York.

“It is with great pleasure that we open our first theater in New York City, a location that is poised to become a literal icon and flagship for CMX Cinemas with its city-inspired sophistication,” said Jose Leonardo Marti, CEO of CMX Cinemas. “New York’s newest one-stop-destination for entertainment, CMX CinéBistro’s intimate environment affords moviegoers the exclusive feeling of being in their very own screening room, complete with the luxurious comforts of top-notch service and superior cuisine and cocktails.”

Featuring a vertical layout with 45,500 sq. feet of theater space, each level contains two auditoriums and immersive bars in the common areas. Ranging in size from 46 to 64 seats, CMX CinéBistro’s six auditoriums feature the latest in projection technology, including a Dolby 7.1 sound system, and lush oversized reclining love seats with leather accents and foot rests, complete with a swivel table. Each chair also includes a dim LED light and storage compartment for safe keeping of personal items.
