The Malco Powerhouse Cinema Grill in Memphis, Tennessee is opening to the public Thursday, March 7, 2019, according to a press release issued recently by Malco Theatres, Inc.

Located at 540 South Front Street in the historic South Main District, the 7-screen movie theater will include luxury recliner seats that you can reserve ahead of time. One auditorium will be the debut of Malco's MXT "Extreme" Theatre, which appears to be a premium large-format screen that has become popular with many theater chains. At least one auditorium (we assume the MXT) will have a Dolby Atmos immersive sound system. A full-service restaurant with a wood-fired pizza oven delivers food to your seat, and there is also a full bar.

Memphis-based Malco Theatres currently operates 33 locations in six states, including nine in Memphis (this location will make it 10). The closest Malco location, the Malco Studio on the Square, is actually the next closest movie theater to the Powerhouse Cinema Grill.

”We left Downtown Memphis over 40 years ago”, said David Tashie, Senior VP of Operations. “We are very excited to be bringing the Powerhouse Cinema Grill to the historic downtown South Main District. Our family has been in this business for over 100 years, and we’ve always embraced any new idea that enhances the moviegoing experience for our patrons. We believe the Powerhouse amenities will add to the already fun and exciting experience of going out to the movies.”

The theater is located in the 1914 brick building that was once a power source to South Main's Central Station, which served the Illinois Central railway line nearby. The smokestack remains, but the building needed extensive renovation, all under the watchful gaze of the Historic Preservation Office and Federal Transit Administration.

We anticipate getting the theater's showtimes very soon, so keep an eye on the Showtimes page for the Malco Powerhouse Cinema Grill for updates!
