A second new cinema is being planned for The Village at Meridian. It’s part of the next phase of development at the property located at Eagle Road and Fairview Avenue.

Officials said the developments include upgrading the existing Village Cinema auditoriums with electric reclining seats, making the cinema the first in Idaho to offer them – as well as expanding the Dolby Atmos Sound system, currently found the Village Cinema’s two giant screen rooms, to more auditoriums in the complex. 

The seating and sound upgrades are scheduled to begin this month and the construction of an additional luxury cinema complex will begin with the next phase of development at The Village, according to a news release.

“Our goal is to continue to provide the best movie-going experience available anywhere. In the Treasure Valley, that means providing more amenities and cinema seating due to rapid growth in the area,” said Dave Corkill, CEO of Cinema West, the cinema operator at The Village at Meridian.

“There's nothing better than feeling the comforts of home while enjoying a movie on the big screen,” said Fred Bruning, CEO of CenterCal Properties. “We're excited to work with Cinema West to improve and expand movie offerings at The Village at Meridian.”

The next phase of development at The Village at Meridian will potentially include more retail, dining and lodging. Renderings and detailed plans of the Phase 2 expansion at The Village will be released in coming months, officials said.
