by - Story: 54236


A state-of-the-art six screen movie cinema will anchor a new shopping centre on the westside.

The new West Kelowna Landing will be built near the Westside Road interchange next to the Westbank First Nation offices.

The cinema will be owned and operated by Landmark Cinemas of Canada.

Landmark Cinemas also owns and operated the five screen Capital Theatre in Westbank along with the Paramount and Grand Ten Cinemas in Kelowna.

Officials with Landmark expect the new cinema to open in 2011 and also expect the Capital Theatre to remain open after the new complex is complete.

"Landmark Cinemas is pleased that the new shopping centre provides us the opportunity to bring this new, state-of-the-art facility to our many guests living in West Kelowna and area," says Landmark COO, Neil Campbell.

"The Landmark Cinema, West Kelowna will become the entertainment destination for the entire community and also those moviegoers living in Kelowna who choose to frequent the new centre because they will have easy access via the William Bennett Bridge."

WFN Chief, Robert Louie says the addition of Landmark Cinemas furthers their objective of creating exciting opportunities for growth and development of WFN strategic land assets.

Landmark Cinemas is the first tenant announced for the 42 acre shopping centre proposed to be constructed just south of the band office.

Before construction can begin, Louie says band members must approve using the community land for the shopping centre.

Band members will vote July 8.

If the vote goes through, Louie says construction would begin in September of this year and is expected to be complete by September 2011.

He expects construction to begin in September of this year.
