AMC NewPark 12
ELS was retained by Rouse Properties to completely transform a vacant three-level department store into a state-of-the-art AMC theater with IMAX at NewPark Mall. ELS incorporated a former loading dock into the plan as an open-air garden space with seating and a bamboo grove for moviegoers and mall patrons alike. The cinema lobby is a double-height glass wall through which a massive mural of iconic movie images glows at night into the parking lot and entry plaza. Beneath the AMC is a large format entertainment tenant featuring meeting rooms, games, amusement park rides and an extensive arcade.
