Dallas-based movie theater chain Cinemark is looking at El Paso for its new Gamescape by Cinemark concept. The company began registering the name trademark in March and hasn’t built any locations yet.
“El Paso is a fantastic market, and we’re really excited to bring Gamescape to the local community,” said Julia McCartha, a Cinemark public relations representative, in an email. She said Cinemark will share more details about the project in the future.
In El Paso, the company plans to build a 67,000-square-foot family entertainment center at 13661 Gateway West that would include seven movie auditoriums, 18 bowling lanes, an arcade, rock climbing, laser tag and a bar and dining area.
Cinemark is working with Dallas-based architecture firm The Beck Group, according to a project listing with the Texas Department of Licensing and Registration.
Construction on the project is listed to begin in December and finish at the end of 2024.
The Gamescape by Cinemark location would be near Interstate 10 and the Amazon warehouse, an area of El Paso that has experienced rapid growth over the last 10 years.
