Michigan-based Emagine Entertainment Inc. will open its first movie theater in Indiana today. The company, which operates more than two dozen theaters across the Midwest says Emagine Portage will begin showings while renovations continue throughout the summer. Emagine says it assumed the lease of the former GQT Portage 16, though it is not disclosing financial terms of the lease or the cost of renovations. The theater includes 16 traditional auditoriums and two EMAX auditoriums with floor-to-ceiling screens. Once renovations are complete, Emagine says the theater will include a full-service bar, lounge area and enhanced concessions, as well as heated reclining chairs and front row seating “cuddle chairs.” It will also feature a balcony in the largest EMAX auditorium. The theater will officially open to the public at 10 a.m.
