The Newark CityPlex 12 project is an extensive renovation and addition to an existing theater located in downtown Newark, New Jersey. The development team was a collaboration between a local developer, the City of Newark and NBA star Shaquille O’Neil. The existing theater lobby was completely remodeled and its auditoriums were converted to full stadium seating with digital projection. An additional six auditoriums were added to make the theater auditorium total twelve. The additional screens are all stadium seating with full digital projection. The largest auditorium in the addition is the premium experience “SHAQ DX” house. This auditorium has luxurious leather lounge chairs paired with the state of the art sound and projection-all “SHAQ” sized. The end result was designing a hometown theater for the City of Newark that is second to none.
