On Thursday, Forest City announced that it had signed a lease with Showplace Icon Theaters for a 16-screen movie theater at The Yards. Construction is expected to start next year with completion in 2018.

Like most new movie theaters, the Showplace Icon will be on the high-end side with recliner seats and reserved seating.

“The facility will also have exclusive VIP levels with adults-only access and tables for enjoying food and beverages inside the auditoriums,” a press release said. “The theatre’s Lobby Lounge will feature a full bar, along with a tasty menu of appetizers, small plates, snacks and desserts for enjoying before, during or after the show.”

In addition to a 16-screen movie theater, the three-block project, located just east of the ballpark at N Place SE and the future 1 1/2 Street SE (approximate map), calls for two apartment and retail buildings. The plan was announced back in 2013.
