INGLEWOOD — City officials celebrated the opening of a new movie theater July 21.

Cinépolis Luxury Cinemas Hollywood Park is the first movie theater to open in Inglewood in 30 years.

As we continue to innovate our concepts to meet the needs of our ever-evolving moviegoers, we are exceptionally thrilled to introduce such a special cinema experience to the Inglewood community,” said Luis Olloqui, chief executive officer of Cinépolis Luxury Cinemas. “Immersive by design, our latest partnership with IMAX provides cutting-edge entertainment coupled with refined luxury and convenience to underscore Hollywood Park’s status as a world-class sports and entertainment destination for all to enjoy.”

The movie theater is located inside Hollywood Park which is already home to SoFi Stadium, YouTube Theatre and the Wesley Apartments.

The ribbon-cutting ceremony was attended by Inglewood Mayor James T. Butts Jr. and City Councilwoman Gloria Gray.

“This is one of the most magnificent, multi-plex theaters in the United States of America,” Butts said. “It keeps in theme with the new Inglewood where we say ‘the only thing that’s changed is everything.’”

The theater features sophisticated interior décor with a stylish open-air lounge and sports bar showcasing modern furnishings and big screen TVs, complete with dining options for guests to mingle and relax before and after movies, concerts and sporting events.

Each theater is outfitted with leather reclining chairs and offer an expansive dine-in menu featuring gourmet food with vegan options and a full wine and spirits bar.

We could not ask for a better partner to open Hollywood Park’s retail district than Cinepolis Luxury Cinemas, one of the world’s leading movie theater operators,” said Jason Gannon, managing director of SoFi Stadium and Hollywood Park. “From the beginning, our local community identified the movie theater as being an important component of the Hollywood Park project and with the opening of Cinepolis, this will be the first movie theater in Inglewood in nearly 30 years.

“We look forward to welcoming Inglewood and greater Los Angeles to enjoy Cinepolis’ incredible entertainment experience and share in Stan Kroenke’s vision to turn Hollywood Park into a year-round destination for the community.”

The cinema offers daily discounts including: happy hour, half-price tickets on Tuesday’s, and $6 bloody Marys and mimosas on Sundays.

The theater is open seven days a week with ticket prices ranging from $9-$19 depending on day of week and showtime.

Other local businesses will soon open at Hollywood Park including Three Weavers Brewery, Iconix Fitness gym, Red Bay Coffee, Grilled Fraiche, Antojitos Martin and Sky’s Gourmet Tacos.
