CMX CinéBistro Concept Set to Open in Wheeling

The newest location for CMX CinéBistro  is set to open Feb. 14 in the Lynmark Corporation’s Wheeling Town Center as the retail anchor for the space, which opened in Spring 2019.  This newest addition, which brings the commercial space of the mixed-use development in Wheeling, IL to 97% capacity, is the largest tenant and will occupy 40,000 square feet.

CMX CinéBistro Wheeling will offer moviegoers a bar and lounge area that can accommodate 183 patrons, along with seven auditoriums with a total capacity of 624. Each theater is equipped with extra-wide leather reclining seats with swing tables for food and beverage service.

“Wheeling Town Center is a prime example of a highly successful mixed-use development for today’s ever-changing retail environment,” said James Schutter, senior managing director at NKF, who is overseeing leasing of the project’s retail.

Connect Industrial Midwest is coming to Rosemont, IL on March 4. For more information, or to register, click here.
