The Cinemark Waco and XD in Waco, Texas has opened to the public.

Located near the intersection of I-35 and Loop 340/Highway 6 about three miles south of downtown Waco, the 14-screen movie theater features two of Cinemark's XD large-format auditoriums, reclining "Luxury Lounger" seats, and laser projection systems.

“Bringing the world-class Cinemark moviegoing experience to the Waco area is something we have been looking forward to for a long time,” said Mark Zoradi, Cinemark CEO. “We are proud to partner with such a unique and close-knit community to bring the area’s movie lovers the absolute best possible moviegoing experience. There is nothing like the immersive, cinematic nature of the theatre, and it comes just in time for a thrilling upcoming film slate.” 

A press release issued by Cinemark recently lists the following amenities at the new theater (marketing-speak straight from the press release):

  • Cinemark’s Luxury Loungers in every auditorium - electric-powered, plush, oversize recliners for maximum movie watching comfort
  • Two Cinemark XD auditoriums – premium format with the largest wall-to-wall screen in the building and 11.1 layer multichannel surround sound for the ultimate viewing experience
  • Ultra-modern auditoriums featuring immersive screens and laser projection powered by Barco for an overall brighter, sharper and more vivid picture
  • Reserved seating throughout the theatre with convenient online and kiosk ticketing
  • 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 Cinemark Signature Pizza and other hot food items, Coca-Cola Freestyle drink stations with over 100 flavors, a full-service bar
  • The Snacks In a Tap advance ordering feature, allowing guests to bypass the concession lines and order favorite movie theatre snacks and drinks online for quick pick up, or have the items delivered directly to their seats for supreme convenience.

The Cottonwood Creek Market development also has a Top Golf for golfing-related fun and a Main Event coming soon that will offer bowling, etc. as entertainment options, restaurants, and stores, along with multi-family residential units and office spaces as well.

The theater is another option for moviegoers in the area, along with the AMC Galaxy 16 near South Valley Mills Drive (Loop 396) and Franklin Avenue. It serves as a replacement for the Premiere Cinemas - Waco Premiere 6, which did not emerge from the pandemic after closing in March 2020. There are more nearby theaters, including the Regal Jewel & ScreenX off Highway 84 E.
