Southlake, TX: New Harkins Southlake Town Square 14 Hopes to Impress Audiences

Posted on Thursday, June 1st, 2006 and updated on Thursday, June 1st, 2006 1:56 PM

A new theater opened last weekend in Southlake, Texas (Dallas / Ft. Worth area), and it is making every attempt to impress its customers. The theater actually has two theaters in one, the Harkins Southlake Town Center 14 and the Harkins Cine Capri at Southlake Town Center. The Dallas Morning News has an article by movie critic Philip Wuntch:
"We believe in a word that's missing from some exhibitors' vocabularies," says owner and president Dan Harkins. "The word is 'showmanship.' " And nowhere is showmanship more evident than in the Southlake's premier auditorium, the 600-seat Cine Capri. The first glance at the auditorium reminds veteran moviegoers of how theaters used to look in a less streamlined era. During intermissions, gold waterfall curtains cover the Cine Capri's giant 70-foot screen. On the draped walls and behind the screen are 150 speakers delivering 26,900 watts of virtually flawless digital sound. The other 13 auditoriums also are attractive, with handsomely designed soundproof walls. And the seats, designed by Mr. Harkins' chiropractor wife, Karen, are comfortable, with just the right amount of mobility.
