The CMX CineBistro Old Orchard and CMX - Old Orchard Market in Skokie, Illinois are now open to the public. A grand opening celebration was held July 27, 2018.

Located fourteen miles north of dowtown Chicago, the theaters are in the Westfield Old Orchard shopping center at Skokie Boulevard and Old Orchard Road (near I-94).

The CMX CineBistro Old Orchard was formerly referred to as the CMX - Old Orchard Dine-In, which opened in December 2017 in the space on the west side of the shopping center that was formerly the Regal Gardens 1-6. The CMX - Old Orchard Market is located on the east side of the shopping center in the space formerly occupied by the Regal Gardens 7-13, which closed at the same time. Both theaters closed in 2016.

The movie theaters are operated by Cinemex Cinemas, which is based in Mexico City, Mexico. It opened its first movie theater in the United States (the CMX - Brickell City Centre in Miami, Florida) in April 2017 and has expanded quickly through acquisitions and opening new locations.

The CineBistro brand is the result of the acquisition of the Cobb Theatres chain by CMX in October 2017. The branding identifies the combination of going the movies with luxury amenities which include food and drink service. In addition to traditional movie theater snacks and sodas, an expanded food menu is available, as is a full bar with wine choices and specialty cocktails.

This news now offers moviegoers in the area a choice of what kind of experience they want to have. The CMX - Old Orchard Market offers a more traditional experience while still providing some luxurious amenities.
