CARY, NC (WGHP) — A new movie theater with one of the largest screens in North Carolina is set to open next month in Cary, and it won’t be your average cinematic experience.

Paragon Theaters is opening a location at 21 Fenton Main St. in the Fenton development on July 1, its second location in Cary, according to Triad Business Journal. Tickets will be $6 for a limited time after the grand opening before dropping to the location’s standard price: adult tickets starting at $11.77.

The theater will feature its Axis15 Extreme theater with a huge 66-foot-wide screen, which it says is “one of the largest in NC” and has a seating capacity of 200. The theater will be equipped with 4K laser projection and Dolby Atmos sound technology.

Similar to “luxurious first-class flight suites,” the company says it will include pod-style seats with loveseats or single seats that can electronically recline. Loveseats will have “privacy wings” and pull-out tables for each guest.

Moviegoers can order food directly to their seats in the auditoriums or dine at the 120-foot theater’s indoor/outdoor bar, accessible from the common plaza. The bar also has a fire pit and water feature, as well as a 15-foot screen for outdoor movies and sporting event presentations.

“The focus on cutting-edge design and exceptional food and beverage lineup at Fenton aligns perfectly with the Paragon brand,” said Mike Whalen, CEO of Paragon Theaters. “During last year’s closures, we took the time to consider our guests’ expectations post-pandemic and are rolling out new amenities in Fenton based on those discussions. We look forward to sharing more details as we get closer to opening.

The site was previously to become a Cinébistro before the parent company filed for bankruptcy.

“We’ve been considering a premier movie theater as an anchor tenant in Fenton for a long time,” said Kenton McKeehan, senior general manager of retail for real estate firm Hines. “Paragon is known for creating unique entertainment and brand experiences for its guests, and it was important for us to identify an operator with a bold vision for the future of cinema. one of Paragon’s leather recliners with a cool drink and good company.
