College Station will also house 200,000 sqf. of retail, restaurants and office space.

The 54,000-square-foot complex, targeted for a fall 2006 opening, will feature "stadium-style" seating, guaranteeing an unobstructed view of the wall-to-wall screens plus extra legroom. Each auditorium will be outfitted with luxurious high-back rocker chair seats with padded cup holder armrests that lift so couples can "cozy-up" during the movie during the movie. Additionally, patrons can expect the latest in acoustic design advances and digital surrounded sound technologies, automated and online ticketing; large efficient concession stands featuring the finest quality movie favorites and daily bargain matinees.

There will also be a 450 space car park with the first level having over 100,000 sgf. of retail, restuarants and office space. The car park will have a skywalk so you can get to the complex without stepping foot outside.

Sounds exciting. The proposed carpark just shows that Springfield developments are much smarter than those in nearby cities. Can't wait.

I reallly like how they used the bottom floor of the carpark for retail, restaurants, office..... I think it a great use of space. This whole dev. will be done by the fall this year.

Very cool and definitely worth a visit when I go there. I wish NWA would build a movie theatre complex like this one, but I doubt it would ever happen.

Yes, MasonsDad, I wish NWA had a major Multiscreen Theatre in one of it's Downtowns. It certainly adds to Downtown Nightlife and the ever spending dollar. This should help Springfield's Downtown become more attractive at night.

I don't think Downtown Springfield needs any help in the nightlife department but yes it will definately add that extra spunk.

What does Downtown Springfield have to offer?

I'm only aware of Hammons Stadium.

That's a lot but I know for a fact that doesn't nearly cover all the attractions in Downtown Springfield. A couple that you didn't mention is Founders Park with it's drive-in styled movies every weekend and the Discovery Center of Springfield, which is a great family attraction. Just so much to do downtown and even so much more coming soon.

Thanks for adding that. I really cant wait for this to get done mainly because I have never been to anything like it. This means that I can eat at a great restaurant, shop around and see a movie without ever leaving the same building. :D

I also forgot the Jordan Valley Ice Park which is two ice rinks. Then theres the big fountains at Jordan Valley Park which alot of families and sometimes intoxicated bar hoppers play in at night.

I've been to the Discovery Center, it's a great facility. I really enjoy the aquarium there.

It looks like College Station will not open until next summer for a number of reasons. The city is actually building the 500 space car park adjacent to CS but when they got the first set of bids back it was a million off so they have to do some revamping. Then Hollywood Cinema is desiging a new look in the midt's of the construction and doesn't want to build any new theaters until the new design theme is complete. Now I have to wait until next year to enjoy a dinner, movie and shopping all in one place. :(
