TUCSON, Ariz. - A popular westside theater will be getting a facelift.

Harkins Theatres announced that it will renovate the Harkins Tucson Spectrum at 5455 S. Calle Santa Cruz.

“Tucson Spectrum holds a special place in our hearts as our first Tucson location, especially for me as a native Tucsonan,” said Mike Bowers, President and CEO of Harkins Theatres, in a statement. “Delivering the ultimate moviegoing experience for our guests is always our number one priority. Part of delivering on this promise is to reinvest in our theatres with best-in-show technology and amenities. We are thrilled to announce the enhancements coming to Harkins Tucson Spectrum.”

The theater will be outfitted with plush leather electronic recliners and rocking seats in each theater, reserved seating and an updated lobby bar with wine and beer.

Also coming is a large-format Cine1 auditorium, with Dolby Atmos 3D object-based sound, an upgraded interior and recliner seats.

The renovation will be ready for the holiday blockbuster season.
