Golden Ticket Cinemas Bringing New Luxury Moviegoing Experience Featuring The Regions First IMAX Screen To Greenville

November 2, 2023, Greenville, NC – Golden Ticket Cinemas is proud to announce that the former Regal Grande movie theatre in Greenville will be reopening later this holiday season as Golden Ticket Cinemas Greenville Grande 14.

Upon opening, the facility will feature all stadium seating, reserved luxury recliners, signature snuggle loungers, a wide assortment of hot food menu options which can be delivered to your seat, a full array of draft and bottled beer, and our new Golden Ticket Non-Stop, unlimited popcorn and soda.

The complex will partially open this December, right before the busy holiday moviegoing season, with additional auditoriums opening several weeks afterwards. The IMAX auditorium has a planned opening in 2024.

“We have quietly been hard at work over the last 10 months or so and now we are finally excited to unveil our plans. Our team is beyond excited to reopen this amazing facility in Greenville and be a part of the community.” said John Bloemeke, President of Golden Ticket Cinemas. “We are very motivated to get this facility open in time for the holidays so some of the upcoming big blockbusters can be shown on the greatest screens in Greenville. I am so excited to share this modern upgraded movie experience with all the moviegoers in the area. Furthermore, to be able to bring the first IMAX theatre to Greenville, which we expect to open in 2024, is something we are very proud of.”

When the IMAX theatre opens in 2024 it will feature the largest screen in Greenville paired with amazing crystal-clear laser projection and a 12 channel immersive sound system. There will simply be no comparison in the market.

In addition to IMAX, Golden Ticket will be unveiling an ELITE auditorium upon opening in December, giving Greenville two premium auditoriums under the same roof.

“While the IMAX brand speaks for itself, we are equally excited to share our ELITE auditorium. Going to the movies is magical and having both an IMAX and ELITE auditorium yields a movie experience that just cannot be replicated at home or anywhere else” Bloemeke explains.

The ELITE auditorium is a premium auditorium which features heated luxury recliners, 4K laser projection, Dolby Atmos 11.1 immersive sound and unparalleled theater aesthetics and lighting, which you can only find at Golden Ticket Cinemas locations.

Beyond the amazing auditoriums, Golden Ticket is also completely remodeling the interior of the facility and introducing enhanced food and beverage options. This means plenty of food options that can be delivered right to your recliner along with draft beer and wine.

“Of course, movies are better with freshly popped popcorn and ice-cold Coca Cola products. We are taking that a step further with our introduction of Golden Ticket Non-Stop, which is our bottomless popcorn and drink program. Basically, when you purchase a popcorn or soda during your visit, you get unlimited refills during your same day visit. You can refill your soda and drinks as you want with our self-serve drink and self-serve fresh popcorn station” stated Bloemeke.

The Golden Ticket Greenville Grande 14 is opening this holiday season, just in time for the big releases of Wonka, Aquaman: The Lost Kingdom and Color Purple in addition to countless other films.

The specific opening date will be announced soon.
