Founded in Mexico in 1971, Cinépolis Luxury Cinemas are known for pioneering the concept of luxury movie theaters and for being the world’s second largest movie theater chain by attendance.

One of its Florida locations, Cinépolis Luxury Cinemas Coconut Grove, is the entertainment anchor of CocoWalk, the popular open-air lifestyle center in Miami’s upscale Coconut Grove neighborhood. When Cinépolis approached us with their desire to elevate the existing luxury movie-theater experience to an even higher level, we eagerly accepted the challenge! Cuhaci Peterson worked with Cinépolis to add a kitchen and renovate all theaters and common areas in support of their mission to provide an unparalleled movie-going experience from the moment guests step through the doors. Partnering with Cinépolis Luxury Cinemas, our team reimagined every obstacle into opportunities to use our diverse expertise to deliver exceptional results! From stunning aesthetic features to inventive structural revamping, this 51,000 square-foot theater is one of our favorite projects to date!

In 2019, the property developer began a full overhaul of the 1990s era mall, including adding a new five-story office tower and renovating all its stores.

As part of the widespread renovation effort, Cinépolis wanted a complete refresh of its 14-screen, 648-seat, 51,371-square-foot theater and to expand its food menu while in the process. And that’s where we came in! The newly redesigned space includes a full-service kitchen and bar with remote ordering and tableside service. All theaters are equipped with reclining seats featuring a push-button ordering system where customers can place their order with a waiter and enjoy a restaurant-quality meal prepared fresh by a professional chef.

One of the biggest challenges our team faced was the entry stairs, which are the first thing customers see when they step through the theater doors. The stairs were not ADA compliant, so they had to be completely reimagined to bring them up to code. After consulting with the original structural engineer for the mall, our team found a solution that exceeded our client’s expectations and satisfied the code requirements.

Once atop the entry staircase, you’re greeted with high-end finishes from custom zebrawood veneers to gold metallic wallcoverings along the promenades, and marble mosaics at the bar and lounges. Guests can enjoy the six-screen video wall in the primary seating area that features the latest in sports, entertainment, or news. With a variety of lounge areas, there are ample places to relax and unwind before a movie, or between a double-feature!
