The Howard Hughes Corporation Breaks Ground on the First Moviehouse & Eatery in The Woodlands & Houston
The New Dine-In Theater will be Located in Creekside Park West in Creekside Park Village Center
With popcorn, specially-packaged candy and a luxury recliner, executives from The Howard Hughes Corporation® and Moviehouse & Eatery® broke ground on the 12-acre retail development, Creekside Park West. Moviehouse & Eatery will open its first Houston location at Creekside Park West, situated in Creekside Park® Village Center, in The Woodlands. The luxury, dine-in theater is being developed by The Howard Hughes Corporation.
Moviehouse & Eatery will include 11 wall-to-wall screens, full-service food and beverage service at every luxury reserved recliner, a full bar and a scratch kitchen. The Moviehouse & Eatery will anchor the initial phase of the retail development, making Creekside Park the first village in The Woodlands with its own theater.
Along with the approximately 42,370-square-foot movie theater, Creekside Park will include new retailers, restaurants with outdoor patios and a gathering courtyard, complete with outdoor fountain seating. Over 550 parking spaces will be included in the development. Creekside Park West will also feature a Craftsman-style architectural design in keeping with the theme prevalent in the Village of Creekside Park.
Rip Reynolds, Vice President, Leasing & Commercial Land for The Howard Hughes Corporation shared, "We are honored that Moviehouse & Eatery has selected The Woodlands for their first location in Houston. Moviehouse & Eatery is a complementary fit, serving as anchor for the retailers and restaurants planned for Creekside Park West, and will provide a unique, dine-in moviegoing experience for our residents and guests.”
The development will be located on Kuykendahl Road between Creekside Forest Drive and West Harmony Place. An extended forest preserve and attractive stone wall will be placed between the development and nearby residences. Completion is slated for winter 2019.
“The Howard Hughes Corporation has increased forest preserves and building setbacks beyond the Commercial Planning & Design Standards,” said Robert Heineman, Vice President, Planning & Design for The Howard Hughes Corporation. “In keeping with the vision of George Mitchell, founder of The Woodlands, Creekside Park Village Center is designed to offer community-oriented amenities for the whole family to enjoy, surrounded by a variety of housing choices.”
