It's showtime at Harkins Arvada 14

The movie theater opened to patrons April 26

Paul Nicely hasn't been to the movie theater since Landmark Theater's Olde Town 14 closed its doors a year ago.

But on April 26, Nicely was first in line at the grand opening of the Harkins Arvada 14, the new Harkins theater, what took over the space.

Nicely didn't plan to be the first in line. But he arrived early to buy movie tickets and ended up buying the last ticket for the opening night of “Avengers: Infinity War.”

Harkins Theatres opened the doors of the brand new Arvada 14 theater just in time for the premiere of “Avengers: Infinity War,” which sold out along with every other movie playing on opening night of the new movie theater at 5550 Olde Wadsworth Blvd. in Arvada. The new theater joins existing Harkins Northfield 18 as the company's second location in the Denver area.

Harkins Theatres announced the acquisition of the Olde Town 14 in April 2017 when the $14 million remodel began.

The remodel highlights include: lounger seats, reserved auditorium seating, mobile ticketing, laser projection, a birthday party room and curved screens.

The theater also boasts a gourmet concession stand with house-made flatbread pizza, Angus burgers, a meat and cheese plate, a hummus and pita tray and popcorn. It also has a full bar serving beer, wine and cocktails.

As tradition, Dan Harkins, owner of Harkins Theaters, bought the first tickets in the new theater at the official opening.

In line not far behind Harkins, was Rickey Rennaker, 18, dressed in an Iron Man costume.

Rennaker has been anticipating the opening of the theater as well as the premier of the new Avengers movie.

“I am a huge Marvel fan and superhero fan,” Rennaker said. “And Harkins is just an amazing theater. Before this opened up, the older one was my favorite. When I found out it was shutting down, I got so disappointed because it was the only theater in town.”

But now, Rennaker is boasting a big smile not only because the renovated movie theater is officially open, but also because he got to see a movie he has been looking forward to on the opening night.
