Tuesday, December 30, 2003 Movies to star at megaplex New home, business construction attracted Emagine Entertainment to Canton Township By Maureen Feighan / The Detroit News CANTON TOWNSHIP — A long-awaited, 18-screen movie megaplex with plush seats, digital sound and a huge lobby is finally on its way in Canton Township. Officials from Troy-based Emagine Entertainment broke ground this month on Emagine Canton, a 72,966-square-foot movie theater on the south side of Ford Road, a quarter-mile east of Interstate 275. The massive theater has been in the planning stages for more than a year but briefly was stalled by glitches with the parking lot, which also falls in Westland. Now, with approval in place from both Canton and Westland, work is under way and should be completed by summer. The complex will include 3,800 seats and a 22,000-square-foot lobby with roughly 20 concession stations. It will be nearly identical to the Emagine theater off 12 Mile in Novi’s Fountain Walk. “The lobby will be a little bit bigger, but it’s almost an exact replica,” said Ruth Daniels, vice president of sales and marketing for Emagine Entertainment. Daniels said Emagine picked Canton for its newest theater because of all the homes and businesses under construction. Canton’s population has surged 8 percent since 2000, from 76,366 to 82,468, according to estimates from the Southeast Michigan Council of Governments. “If you drive around there, it’s amazing to see all the new construction,” Daniels said. “(But) it’s an underserved market as far as movies. People go to Livonia or Ypsilanti or Downriver.” Township Supervisor Thomas Yack is looking forward to Canton’s new addition, especially since Emagine recently donated $25,000 toward the township’s new performance arts center, which also is under construction. He thinks it will be a major boon to area restaurants. “People combine the two,” Yack said. “So Emagine plans to do a lot of work offering packages with the restaurants. We’ll be cross-marketing with (Emagine) as well.” And because the theater is still months from completion, Yack isn’t sure how it will affect Canton’s current movie complex, Cinema Six. Yack said earlier that the theater’s operators submitted plans to upgrade the theaters and build a seventh, but those plans since have been withdrawn.
