“Stone Theatres is extremely excited to bring this much needed stat-of-the-art facility to Indian Trail and the surrounding Union County Communities,” says company President and CEO Herman Stone. “Additionally, we are extremely enthusiastic about this wonderful opportunity to be a part of the Sun Valley Commons. We expect to build a beautiful show palace for the community, a place you will be proud to see a movie at. The site will be convenient for this growing residential community and upon completion should employ as many as 50 employees.”

According to Dennis W. Moser, MAI, President, and CEO of The Moser Group, INC. the company is adding 27.7 acres for Phase III to accommodate the theatre. Sun Valley Commons will include a total of 53 acres and include outparcels available for retail/office and/or restaurants. All sites will be pre-graded with the majority including parking, lighting, water, sewer, and storm drainage. "This development will change the shopping pattern for southern Mecklenburg County and all of Union County, keeping residents at home and spending in Union County. It is great for our tax base, jobs, and schools."

"The total investment for Phase III will be $45 to $60 million, creating over 500 jobs. Based on our research, the Sun Valley Commons area is underserved by retail and resaurants. The theatres' regional draw will support the new proposed uses including national tenants" says Katherine Southard of The Moser Group, Inc., who will be marketing the project along with Van Southard, CCIM, MBA.

Stone Theatres, headquartered in Charlotte, NC presently operates 3 locations with 44 screens located in North and South Carolina. Prior to forming Stone Theatres, Mr. Stone was President and CEO of Consolidated Theatres headquartered in Charlotte, NC. Consolidated Theatres consisted of 34 locations and over 400screens operating along the Eastern seaboard, including Phillips Place, Park Terrace and Arboretum in Charlotte and Union Square in Monroe.

The company has plans for continued growth throughout the eastern United States. Stone Theatres is committed to continuing its reputation as the premier theater operating company in the United States.

The Moser Group, Inc., headquartered in Indian Trail, recently completed the new Lowe’s Home Improvement, McDonald’s, Starbucks, Papa John’s, and CVS in the Sun Valley Commons area. The company also has contracts pending.
