MVP3 CEO Marie Pizano expanded on the group’s plans, indicating that the grand opening would include a ribbon-cutting and walk-of-fame ceremony. “Now that we have closed, we will be working overtime to get open, and get the community on board. Our opening festivities will include specialty dining, musical concert, fireworks, and several celebrity guests. It will certainly be a special night.”
The partnership plans to open five auditorium theaters, to feature blockbuster films and concessions. Other opportunities will include membership clubs, ticketed events, naming rights and prime rental space for local businesses.
Phase 2 of the project is set to begin after the opening, which will enable the remodel of six sound stages for film and music production, café, gift shop, museum, bookstore, and other retail stores by late 2021. The group also announced that the Worsham Hotel Group is slated to begin plans to build a new hotel adjacent to the MVP3 studios next year.
