The excitement is palpable. When Epic Theatres announced in 2016 it was planning a state-of-the-art multiplex in Mount Dora, movie-lovers waited anxiously, with every passing month seeming like an eternity.
Epic announced giddy movie enthusiasts will be in the seats at the 12-screen multiplex starting April 26.
The 50,000 square-foot project is being erected on the land between Target and Walmart. It will feature 1,400 reclining seats, beer and wine, two extra-large screens, optional reserved seats and an enhanced concession menu.
Epic expects to hire between 30-50 employees, depending on the season, to staff the $10 million project.
