Emagine to open with charity-event weekend

The brand-new Emagine movie theater complex will open in downtown Royal Oak May 13 with a three-day charity extravaganza designed to raise money from opening day ticket sales to donate to local charities.  The complex hopes to raise $250,000 for partnering charities, which include the Judson Center, Variety Detroit, Gleaners Food Bank, the Royal Oak Foundation for Public Education and the Royal Oak Boys and Girls Clubs of South Oakland County.

“We’ve overcome a number of challenges,” said Paul Glantz, CEO of
Emagine Entertainment. “It’s a very attractive venue inside and out. We
feel like we addressed the concerns of the community and we hope we have
done so.”

The 10-screen movie theater complex will have a 16-lane bowling alley
inside, along with a liquor license to sell alcohol to patrons. The
71,000-square-foot facility is located at 200 Main St., near the corner
of 11 Mile and Main.
