  • It's official: the highly anticipated 12-theatre cinema complex in Waynesville will open this month.
    B&B Theatres announced Monday the grand opening of its newest location, the Patriot 12 Cinema, will take place on Aug. 29.
    Construction crews have been working at the Waynesville Patriot 12 Cinema site, owned and operated by B&B Theatres, for more than a year now. The site is located on GW Lane near Waynesville High School.
    The construction process was delayed several months due to the harsh winter conditions, high winds, and site complications.
    What to expect
    All 12 auditoriums in the theatre will feature stadium-style seating and will be equipped with the latest B&B technology including digital surround sound and wall-to-wall curved screens.
    Two auditoriums named the Marquee Suites will feature leather, power reclining chairs, a full-service waiting staff, and a full bar and grill. Only guests 21 years of age and older will be able to enter the suites, but guests do not have to buy a movie ticket to enjoy the bar and grill services.
    The Marquee Bar and Grille will be located just off the lobby and will feature a lounge area, outdoor patio, full bar and grille. This is the first time B&B has constructed the kitchen for the suites in a way that is accessible for theatre guests to order items.
    But perhaps the cinema's most impressive asset that sets it apart from others in the area is the Grand Screen — spanning a massive six stories wide and three stories high, making it one of the largest screens in the nation.
    B&B Waynesville History
    B&B Theatres has been operating in Waynesville for more than 23 years. The Waynesville Cinema 4 opened in 1990 and will remain open until the week of the grand opening of the new theatre.
    Bagby said that most likely 50 to 60 employees will work at the new theatre.
    Grand Opening
    A ribbon cutting is planned for 5:45  p.m. on Friday, Aug. 29.  The first fifty (50) guests following the completion of the ribbon cutting will be given free B&B Theatres Swag Bag, packed with all sorts of great surprises.
    Tickets will be on sale on Friday the 29th at bbtheatres.com for the opening weekend, and a free popcorn will be given to every guest that purchases a ticket for a film on Friday or Saturday.
