Malco Theatres has opened a new theater in Owensboro, Kentucky and closed another several miles away from the new location. The Malco Owensboro Cinema Grill in the Gateway Commons development near Highway 54 and US 60 opened June 20, 2019, while the Malco Owensboro Cinema 16 on Frederica Street (about six miles to the west) closed June 18th.

The new fourteen-screen movie theater will feature one of Malco's MXT "Extreme Theater" auditoriums, with a 72 foot wide screen, laser projection, a Dolby Atmos immersive sound system, and leather seating that you can reserve ahead of time.

Additional amenities at the theater include a gourmet grill menu with hand-crafted pizzas and cheeseburgers, a full bar with wine, beer, and cocktail selections, and an outdoor patio with fire pit.

A press release from Malco Theatres contained the following quote from David Tashie, President and Chief Operating Officer:

”We are excited to bring these new amenities to the Owensboro market. For over 80 years we have been a proud member of this community and feel like it is our second home, said David Tashie, President & COO. “Our emphasis has always been on quality and we have always stressed the importance of staying ”ahead of the curve” in sight and sound technology. Now, we’ll be adding another layer of excellence by increasing the seating comfort for our patrons. 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 these new amenities will add to the already fun and exciting experience of going out to the movies.”
