Movie, dining concept planned for KellerMay 9, 2013
An Austin-based movie-restaurant concept is planned to open in Keller just in time for whatever blockbuster opens in the summer of 2014.
Moviehouse & Eatery plans to begin construction of the dine-in theater with eight upscale auditoriums in more than 42,000 square feet at 250 Rufe Snow Drive as part of the Town Center development.
"Moviehouse is going to be a tremendous complement to this community and the Town Center development, filling a niche we have wanted for years," Keller Mayor Pat McGrail said. "We have worked for a long time to attract a high-quality entertainment destination to Keller, and this project fits the bill perfectly.”
The flagship Moviehouse & Eatery opened in Austin in November, and owners P&S Real Estate Investments I, LLC have been in discussions with staff about a Keller location — its first in the DFW market — since October, according to city officials.
At its April 16 meeting, the Keller City Council approved a site plan and development incentive and performance agreement worth more than $500,000 for the developers.
