This formerly-blink-and-you-miss-it town with scattered horse farms and cornfields is now to be prime fodder for a new lifestyle center complete with Dillard's, Macy's, JCPenney, Embassy Suites, Barnes & Noble, Container Store, and more, as well as this new theater.

Eight-screen cinema planned in Fairview

11:35 PM CDT on Thursday, May 31, 2007

Village Roadshow Gold Class Cinemas, a joint venture between Australian and Californian entertainment companies, will locate one of its cinemas in the Village at Fairview regional shopping center planned in Collin County, says developer MGHerring Group.

Plans call for a 38,000-square-foot, eight-screen Gold Class Cinema above the retail portion of the development at the northeast corner of Stacy Road and U.S. Highway 75 in Fairview.

"Village Roadshow Gold Class Cinemas" That's quite an overly involved name for a company.

Collin County currently has 5 regular 1st-run theaters, 1 art house theater, 1 cinema grill, and 1 2nd-run theater. The county is probably still underserved by screens, but if you're going to put in an 8-plex on 75 between McKinney and Allen, it's going to have to be very nice, very cheap, or both to get people to come to it. Being in a shopping center will help (since outside of Allen's outlet mall, there isn't a mall in the county outside of Plano and Frisco), but it might be tough drawing people from Allen and McKinney who just want to see a movie.
