Cinépolis Luxury Cinema

Cinépolis Cinema will anchor a retail development in the Howard Hughes’ Creekside Park Village Center in The Woodlands, TX. The Austin-based dine-in movie theater occupies 42,370 square feet and nearly 900 seats at Creekside Park West, a 12-acre retail development within the retail center and will be located on Kuykendahl Road between Creekside Forest Drive and West Harmony Place. Originally branded as Movie House & Eatery, the company combined the location with Cinépolis, who previously looked at The Woodlands but, was never able to get started. The only difference between the two companies is that future movie-goers can expect is a new name primarily staffed by Movie House is currently the only Dine-In Movie Theater in The Woodlands.

3D Movie Technology

In the past few years, filmmakers have taken this attempt to recreate three-dimensional space on screen one step further. With digital 3-D, animators can fool your eyes and brain into thinking that they're looking into a 3-D space rather than at a 2-D screen. The end result is like looking through a window into a real, three-dimensional world or like having elements of the scene in the theater with you. While it's similar to older 3-D movies, the technology is considerably more advanced.

Both old and new 3-D movies rely on quirks of human vision to create deep, panoramic scenes or objects that seem to fly from the screen. Human beings have binocular vision - each eye sees a different image - and the brain combines them into a single, unified picture. The brain uses the slight difference in angle between the two images, known as parallax, to help it perceive depth. This is why people who lose sight in one eye have difficulty judging distances.

The Woodlands has Gone Hollywood

The Woodlands Convention & Visitors Bureau is promoting the community to the Texas Film Commission as a prime location for films, television and commercials. In hopes of becoming the next movie and cinema hot spot, The Woodlands will provide an inventory of its diverse shooting locations, including parks, shopping centers and suburban neighborhoods via it's new entity, "The Woodlands Area Film Commission."
The new initiative is to help The Woodlands to step out of the shadow of Houston and to market the diversity of the master planned community. Many outside the community believe that The Woodlands is still a rural setting and do not realize all the community has to offer. "It's another marketing opportunity," said Karen Hoylman, a member of the board of The Woodlands Convention & Visitors Bureau as well as president of The Woodlands Area Chamber of Commerce. "They haven't seen Market Street. It should be called Hollywoodlands."

The Woodlands has been the site of several local productions, including "The Bracelet of Bourdeaux," "Backstabbers," and "Playing House," as well as remote locations for Great Day Houston on KHOU (Channel 11), an episode of HGTV's House Hunters, and numerous music videos, commercials, public service announcements (PSAs), and short films. But The Woodlands hopes to attract a broader audience among filmmakers. Many cities in Texas have capitalized on being film-friendly and it has lead to significant economic development. For example, Smithville was the main shooting location for the film "Hope Floats" with Sandra Bullock, and as a result of shooting, sales taxes increased 17 percent there, leading to $800,000 in revenues directly tied to the film. A second film, "Tree of Life" starring Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, was also shot in Smithville.

Nick Wolda, president of The Woodlands Convention & Visitors Bureau, said films can make the community an ongoing tourist destination. Wolda said people continue to visit Savannah, Georgia to see the bench where Tom Hanks sat in "Forrest Gump," and many go to Seaside, Florida where Jim Carrey filmed "The Truman Show." "It&'s more of an education effort with the film industry," said Nelda Luce Blair, past chairwoman of The Woodlands Convention & Visitors Bureau. "It is just another way to bring business to The Woodlands. We want to emphasize what we have to offer. We want to let people know about Market Street, our statues and our suburban look and feel."

The Woodlands Theater Scene recently quadrupled from a two theater town adding AMC and Xscape Theaters in 2018 & 2019 with a fifth movie theater (Movie House & Eatery) expected late 2019 / early 2020.
Theatrical entertainment is more than just on the big screen, of course. The Woodlands is also home to the Class Act Studio, which presents several stage productions throughout the year at the Nancy Bock Center for the Performing Arts at McCullough Junior High, and The Woodlands College Park High School theater. Just about 12 miles north of The Woodlands, Stage Right Productions also hosts several performances throughout the year at the Creighton Theater in Conroe.
