Texas exhibitor EVO Entertainment Group will open a new movie theater / entertainment center in the Hampton Roads region, Virginia, the company said Tuesday (February 15th). Construction of the 50,000-square-foot site is already underway, and opening is expected in April 2022.
Upon completion, the new eight-screen movie theater will be the first EVO venue in Virginia and the first of its flagship venues under the EVO Entertainment brand to open outside of Texas. The “multi-entertainment” venue will include button and chair service in eight auditoriums, as well as nine-lane bowling, a video room, a restaurant and bar, and private events.
The new venue, dubbed EVO Entertainment Hampton, will be located in downtown Peninsula Town on the site of the former Move Grill studio and is expected to employ more than 75 people. The location is close to the Hampton Coliseum, the Hampton Roads Convention Center and other popular shopping and entertainment venues.
“We couldn’t be happier to bring our brand of entertainment experience to Hampton,” said EVO founder and CEO Mitch Roberts. “We spent a lot of time here and fell in love with the history and charm of this vibrant, diverse and family-oriented community.”
EVO Entertainment Hampton will bring the national EVO trail to 18 venues, 163 screens, 129 bowling alleys and more than 45,000 square feet of games and rides in five states.
