A Plano favorite has just re-opened to the public with a brand new makeover and is now known as Cinemark Central Plano, formerly Cinemark Movies 10.

Cinemark Central Plano offers film fans 10 different screens on which they can see the most recent Hollywood blockbusters. The new auditoriums have been updated to include Cinemark’s signature Luxury Loungers seats with heating options.

In the lobby, moviegoers can order snacks, sodas, wine and local beers on tap and more. They will also be able to order frozen Jack Daniels and Coca Cola cocktails. Cinemark Central Plano has also partnered with Pizza Hut, allowing guests to order personal pan pizzas to enjoy while watching movies. Cinemark Central Plano will offer free refills on large-sized popcorn and sodas.

Eventually, Cinemark Central Plano moviegoers will be able to order concessions using the Cinemark mobile application, and then pick them up in a designated area.

In the parking lot, guests in electronic cars will find designated spots to charge their vehicles while they watch movies.

While the theater was known as the “dollar movies,” prior to its facelift, Cinemark Central Plano, unfortunately, will not offer the $2 tickets that Planoites knew and loved. The arcade will also not be making a return. However, Cinemark Central Plano will still offer discounts for senior citizens every day of the week, as well as discounted tickets on Tuesdays for all moviegoers.
