The theater complex at Meadowbrook Mall is under new ownership, a move officials will enhance the movie experience for local moviegoers. Officials also say it should increase the flow of customers.

The cineplex is now owned by ShowPlex Cinemas, Inc., a theater circuit owned by Texas-based Trinity Hunt Partners, with locations in Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Nebraska and Arkansas.

The company has partnered with Cinedigm Digital Cinema Corp. to have new digital movie equipment installed in the theaters, officials said in a press release.

That includes new screens that are capable of showing 3-D films as well as live sporting events.

“It allows moviegoers in this area a better opportunity to see the shows as they were designed to be seen,” said J. Todd Ewing, vice president and general manager of Great Plains Developments, L.L.C., which operates Meadowbrook. “Overall we expect traffic to increase.”

ShowPlex officials were not readily available for comment, but according to the release, most of the installations are anticipated to be done in the next 12 months, with the final few to be completed in the beginning of 2012.

“ShowPlex Cinemas is committed to providing the finest movie-going experience for consumers making Cinedigm the perfect partner both for the deployment and for the digital content our consumers want to see, including LIVE 3D sports, gaming, special events and more,” said Al Lane, CEO of ShowPlex Cinemas.

With Cinedigm’s turnkey suite of digital cinema technologies, the release continued, ShowPlex Cinemas will feature all-new digital entertainment options, including 3D films, live sports programming and 3D theatrical concerts.

“We are extremely pleased to welcome ShowPlex Cinemas to our proud list of exhibitor partners,” said Chuck Goldwater, President, Cinedigm’s Media Services Group.

“Our team is excited to be working with the ShowPlex team to help them take full advantage of the operational and the programming applications made available by Cinedigm’s digital cinema platform.”
