A new movie theater coming to the RedStone development will be the largest of its kind in the Indian Land area.

Construction on the 53,000-square-foot cinema will start soon, and opening is expected in the fall of 2016, according to a joint statement from Charlotte-based Stone Theatres and MPV Properties, which will manage the property.

The 40-acre retail development, approved in February, is at U.S. 521 and S.C. 160 in the Indian Land area of Lancaster County, just south of Ballantyne. The development’s new theater will have approximately 2,800 stadium seats and 14 wall-to-wall screens.

“Indian Land is experiencing tremendous residential and commercial growth, and RedStone is ideally located to serve the growing retail needs of this market,” said Mike Bilodeau of MPV Properties. “We expect to attract a number of national, regional and local retailers to this project.”

Herman Stone, Stone Theatres president and CEO, said the theater will employ as many as 50 people once it’s complete.

Stone Theatres operates four cinemas with 56 screens in North and South Carolina, including Sun Valley 14 located in Indian Trail.
