Rochester and Burnsville, MN: Two CineMagic Movie Theaters Sold to Florida Operator, Closed for Updates

Posted on Friday, February 4th, 2011 3:47 PM. Last Updated on Monday, July 15th, 2013 4:06 PM by Scott Jentsch

CineMagic logoThe CineMagic Chateau 14 Theatres in Rochester, Minnesota and the CineMagic Atlantis 15 in Burnsville, Minnesota have been sold to Florida-based Paragon Entertainment, LLC., according to articles on the web sites for KTTC-TV and the Sun-Current.

Both theaters were closed at the end of January by CineMagic Theatres, which went into Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in September 2010. They are being upgraded by Paragon Entertainment to offer Digital Cinema Projection systems in all auditoriums (with 3D in some of them), as well as upgraded and reserved seating and lounges that serve alcoholic drinks.

Premier Seats at the Muvico Village 12
The Muvico Village 12, operated by Paragon Entertainment, opened to the public in May 2010.

While the theaters are closed, moviegoers in Rochester will have two other theaters as choices, and those in Burnsville will have seven theaters nearby.

According to an article in the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, the Atlantis 15 will be renamed to Odyssey 15, and will re-open in about two weeks. The VIP seating, bar and lounge, and "small-plate food offerings" will follow in the spring. The Chateau 14 is scheduled to reopen in late February or early March.

Paragon Entertainment operates the Paragon Grove 13 in Miami, Florida and the Muvico Village 12 in Fredericksburg, Virginia.

CineMagic Theatres operates seven other movie theaters in Iowa, Minnesota, and Wisconsin. Customers with gift certificates for the Chateau 14 may redeem them at their other Rochester location, the CineMagic Hollywood Luxury Stadium 12. Company spokesman Bryan Sieve is quoted in the KTTC article as saying that the company has no plans to close that theater but no mention was made of the other locations and their fates as a result of the company's financial condition.
