Back in 2001, the Bayshore Mall announced a major remodeling project headed by Steiner + Associates, a developer of "town centers" around the country. That project is now coming to fruition in the form of the Bayshore Town Center, a large "lifestyle" shopping center that combines living spaces with shopping.
Back on July 21st, I mentioned that the developers of the Bayshore Town Center were pushing for the development to include a movie theater. Now that the Bayshore Town Center is getting ready for its big debut on Thursday, it's being reported that the complex will indeed include a movie theater. One big difference between their plan and the typical multiplex is that, according to JSOnline, there will only be six screens and that there will be some unique features:
Steiner expects to announce soon the name of an operator for the entertainment complex in the rotunda, which is attached to the existing Bayshore building. The complex will include upscale bowling lanes and a high-end six-screen theater.
The movie theater will admit only people over age 18 and will include a full-service restaurant. The theater complex will have a total of only 500 seats, double-wide and comfortably spaced.
"It's almost like private screening rooms," Rosenberg said. Prices will be upscale too, about $2 higher than the average movie ticket in the area.

According to another article written in the North Shore Herald on September 29, 2006 and reprinted in a special insert by Community Newspapers on October 27, 2006, the plan is for these theaters to serve a high-end product to "higher-end clientele."
The theaters will seat from 48 to 82 people per theater, and would feature assigned seating in six-foot-wide love seats. It is hoped that the theaters will be rented during the week for business meetings.
These theaters will be within walking distance of the Fox Bay Cinema Grill, which offers a combination of dinner and a movie on three screens.
The theaters, as well as the luxury bowling lanes, will be located in the second floor of the rotunda, the main entrance to the Town Center. According to Steiner + Associates, the theaters are likely to open in January 2007.
