Good to see Universal moving forward with CityWalk. This and HP World will be good all the way around.
Universal Orlando’s CityWalk entertainment district is getting IMAX movie technology and a pair of new eateries.
The resort announced this morning that it has installed an IMAX theater in CityWalk’s 20-screen cineplex. The changes included replacing an existing screen with a larger IMAX screen positioned closer to the audience, adding IMAX’s digital-project system and upgrading the sound system.
The revamped theater will open at 12:01 a.m. on Dec. 18, coinciding with the premiere of the much-hyped 3-D movie “Avatar” by director James Cameron. “With the addition of the IMAX at AMC Universal Cineplex in CityWalk our guests now get the highest picture and sound quality in the industry along with an incredible entertainment experience” Ric Florell, a Universal senior vice president and general manager of resort revenue operations, said in a written statement.
In addition, Universal said CityWalk is also adding two new quick-service restaurant concepts: Fusion Bistro Sushi & Sake Bar and a Fat Tuesday frozen-daiquiri bar. Fusion will open in January and Fat Tuesday will open in February.
