TAYLOR (WWJ) – A new 10 screen digital theatre is coming to Downriver.

MJR Digital Cinemas announced Tuesday it is moving into the old Star Theatre building on Eureka Road in Taylor, across from the Southland Mall.

Extensive building renovations are scheduled to begin by the end of July and be completed in time to open for the 2014 Christmas season. The newly renovated theatre will be called the MJR Grand Taylor.

The cinema will have 10 deluxe auditoriums with 1,100 seats — big, wide, overstuffed fully reclining electric chairs complete with footrests. These seats will put the movie watching experience “over the top” for the customer. All auditoriums will feature digital projection, wall to wall and ceiling to floor wrap around screens, and Dolby Digital 7.1 sound.

The cinema will also feature the MJR Studio Bar and Lounge, where moviegoers can enjoy a cocktail, beer or wine, before, during or after the show.
