It’s been about 18 months since construction started on a massive movie theater that will anchor the new RedStone development in Indian Land, near the Red Ventures headquarters. I’ve heard from several readers asking about the status of the project.
According to MPV Properties, the firm managing the site, the developer is targeting early February as an opening date for the theater. The 14-screen theater will have 2,800 seats, making it the largest of its kind in the Indian Land area.
The theater, which will be called RedStone 14, will employ about 50 people.
The first phase of the development will include nearly 55,000 square feet of retail shop space, in addition to the movie theater. It will have a slew of restaurants – including Viva Chicken, Moe’s Southwest Grill and Menchie’s Frozen Yogurt – as well as a nail salon, credit union, dry cleaners and other shops.
The 40-acre retail development, approved in February 2015, is at U.S. 521 and S.C. 160 in the fast-growing Indian Land area of Lancaster County, just south of Ballantyne.
Stone Theatres, the parent company operating the new RedStone theater, operates four cinemas with 56 screens in North and South Carolina, including Sun Valley 14 in Indian Trail.
MPV is planning for a second phase of the project, which will include more retail space. When completed, RedStone will total 310,000 square feet of retail space. Ely Portillo contributed.
