Hayden’s new discount cinema opens in Carolina
North Carolina’s Hayden Discount Cinema is now open to the public in Raleigh, as the theater is the latest of several North Carolina cinemas to be retrofitted to accommodate high-definition video streaming and a larger capacity.
Located at the North Carolina Museum of Art, the North Raleigh Cinema will seat 60 people and has been fully restored and re-branded.
The cinema is currently open through February 1, 2019, with an expected grand opening to coincide with the start of the New Year’s Eve celebration.
“We are pleased to welcome the Hayden to our community,” said Hayden president and CEO James Sperling in a statement.
“Hayden’s mission is to make the moviegoing experience affordable and convenient for everyone.”
The theater is located at 707 North Carolina St., in the historic North Raleigh area, which was originally a textile mill site in the 1920s.
The property was purchased by Hayden Cinemas in 2012, and the company has expanded to the surrounding neighborhoods.
The Hayden is expected to offer two-screen, premium-rate tickets, starting at $18 and up, and an additional two-hour premium ticket, which starts at $24.50, with a limited number of tickets available.
The theater will feature an on-screen projection screen that can be adjusted for each seat.
“This is a historic theater and we are honored to be able to serve this community,” Sperlin said in the statement.
The theater will have a limited capacity of 60 seats, but the company said it hopes to accommodate more patrons in the future.
