A 4,000 square foot interactive arcade with redemption prizes and private facilities for birthday parties, youth parties and corporate outings will also available for entertainment seekers.
“We could not be more excited about the grand opening of Film Alley Weatherford,” said director of economic development Dennis Clayton. “In June 2016, the Dallas Business Journal ranked the Film Alley Weatherford project in the ‘Top 25’ of the North Texas Corporate Relocations and Expansions list. Film Alley Weatherford is going to attract people from across the North Texas region and enhance the regional attraction and shopping destination that Weatherford has established.”
Schulman Theatres currently own and operate four other facilities located in Hudson Oaks, Bastrop, Georgetown and Palestine. Film Alley Weatherford is the fifth location and second multi-venue center for the company.
“The entire Schulman Theatres family is so thrilled to be in Weatherford, Texas," said marketing director Shelby Tatom. “We are so proud to be part of the community and welcome everyone to our grand opening.”
“The addition of Film Alley Weatherford along the I-20 growth corridor brings a component of entertainment that we have been missing,” said city manager Sharon Hayes. “To see this project complete and know the positive impact it will bring to the Weatherford community says a lot about the vision of our City Council, staff and Schulman Theatres.”
