The Cinemark Jacksonville Atlantic North and XD in Jacksonville, Florida is opening Thursday, September 16, 2021.

Located in the Atlantic North shopping center off Atlantic Boulevard west of the Intercoastal Waterway, the 14-screen movie theater project was announced in March 2019. Originally scheduled to open in Summer 2020, the opening date was delayed in October 2019 to "early 2021" but the coronavirus pandemic likely caused additional delays.

“Cinemark is thrilled to be opening our third theatre in the greater Jacksonville area,” said Mark Zoradi, Cinemark CEO. “Movie fans can come and enjoy this upscale new theatre and everything it has to offer, including our fan-favorite Luxury Loungers and cutting-edge laser projection. We are proud to provide the community with an enhanced, larger-than-life cinematic experience that cannot be replicated at home.”

The new theater features Cinemark's Luxury Lounger powered recliners, an XD auditorium, and it appears that three auditoriums are equipped with D-Box motion seats. The press release includes a list of amenities at the theater:

  • A Cinemark XD auditorium – premium format with the largest wall-to-wall screen in the building and 11.1 layer multichannel surround sound for the ultimate viewing experience;
  • Cinemark’s Luxury Loungers – electric-powered, plush, oversize recliners for maximum movie watching comfort;
  • Reserved seating throughout the theatre with convenient online and kiosk ticketing;
  • Ultra-modern auditoriums featuring immersive screens and laser projection powered by Barco for an overall brighter, sharper and more vivid picture;
  • D-BOX seats that provide moviegoers a complete immersive dimension to the cinematographic experience by perfectly synchronizing the action on the screen with individual motion control in the seats;
  • Expanded concession offerings in addition to the irresistible movie theatre popcorn, including Pizza Hut pizzas and other hot food items, Coca-Cola Freestyle drink stations with over 100 flavors, and a full-service bar;
  • One of Cinemark’s largest game rooms, complete with a variety of fan-favorite games; and
  • A party room available for rental for birthday parties and other celebrations.

Until now, moviegoers in the area needed to visit one of the other nearby theaters, including the AMC Regency 24 in Jacksonville. Cinemark also operates the Cinemark Tinseltown and XD on Southside Boulevard and the Cinemark Durbin Park and XD on Durbin Pavilion Drive.
