Charlotte, NC – Stone Theatres and MPV Properties are pleased to announce an agreement for Stone Theatres to build a 14-screen multiplex at RedStone, a 40 acre retail development located at Hwy 521 (Charlotte Hwy) and Hwy 160 in the Indian Land area of Lancaster County. The 53, 000 square-foot, state-of-the-art cinema will be the largest in the Lancaster County/Indian Land communities and is expecting to start construction soon, with an anticipated opening in late fall 2016.
The RedStone development was unanimously approved by Lancaster County Planning Commission at its February 23rd meeting and site work is slated to start immediately. The retail development is a mix of retail/restaurant and entertainment and is expected to attract national brands as tenants. “Indian Land is experiencing tremendous residential and commercial growth, and RedStone is ideally located to serve the growing retail needs of this market”, said Mike Bilodeau of MPV Properties. “We expect to attract a number of national, regional and local retailers to this project.” This development will change the shopping patterns for Lancaster County, keeping residents at home and spending in the area as well as attracting residents from southern Mecklenburg and surrounding counties. It is great for Lancaster County tax base, jobs and schools.

Approximately 2, 800+ Stadium Seats with comfortable high-back rocker seating and retractable, padded arm rests and cup holders.
