A short trip to Emagine’s Super EMAX, located at its Canton/Westland location, will allow you a unique view of the movie on the largest screen in the Midwest. Check out the news.

Emagine Entertainment, Inc., one of the nation’s leading innovators in motion picture exhibition, is pleased to unveil the largest CinemaScope screen in the Midwest: Emagine’s Super EMAX, located at its Canton/Westland location. The venue, with a heritage dating to 2004, was renovated throughout this year with heated reclining chairs and now expanded by an additional 9,000 square feet of space located predominately in the City of Westland. The expansion area will include the Super EMAX screen as well as a new event space/party room. The Grand Opening celebration of the new Super EMAX screen will take place beginning at 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, December 19th. The official ribbon cutting will be held at 7:00 p.m. followed by a showing of the most anticipated movie of the year, STAR WARS: THE RISE OF SKYWALKER. Emagine Canton/Westland is located at 39535 Ford Rd, Canton, Michigan 48187.

The expanded theatre venue now spans over two neighboring communities: The City of Westland and the Charter Township of Canton. Emagine invested over $3.0 million in the expansion alone thereby ensuring the venue’s continued role as the highest volume theatre in Wayne County.

The Super EMAX screen measures 94 feet wide by 40 feet tall making it the largest CinemaScope movie screen in the Midwest and among the largest such screens in the nation. It will feature ultra-bright crisp Christie® 4K RGB 57,000 lumen laser imagery paired with a 64-channel Dolby Atmos® immersive audio system and further enhanced with a QSC Core 110f, a multipurpose software-based digital audio signal processor that delivers the benefits of QSC’s Q-SYS solution. Used in conjunction with QSC’s DPA-Q Series amplifiers, the Core 110f provides bass management for low-frequency content in all of the Dolby Atmos® surround channels. Bass management combines the low-frequency sound content that is directed to the surround speakers and sends it instead to special surround subwoofers. The Core 110f also provides Intrinsic Correction™, which is special QSC laboratory-derived sound processing that guarantees optimal performance from any loudspeaker. The combination of the aforementioned technology should create the most awe-inspiring movie experience in the Midwest. Emagine Canton’s Super EMAX will feature 345 luxury heated reclining chairs with a special front row of cuddle chairs, an innovation designed by Emagine’s Chairman, Paul Glantz.

“The quality of our guests’ moviegoing experience is always at the forefront of our minds. We are steadfastly committed to providing our guests with an exemplary out-of-home movie-going experience. Our Super EMAX will undeniably be the largest CinemaScope screen in the Midwest, but more importantly, it will be the best place in the State of Michigan to see a blockbuster film,” said Chairman of Emagine Entertainment, Paul Glantz.

“Moviegoing is personal to us and we take great pride in providing our guests with the absolute best viewing experience in the market. We believe they will be truly wowed by our new Super EMAX auditorium,” said Anthony LaVerde, CEO of Emagine Entertainment.

Special engagement adult Super EMAX tickets, like those for STAR WARS: THE RISE OF SKYWALKER, will be priced at $10.00 for matinees and $15.00 for shows starting after 6:00 p.m. Tickets are available at www.emagine-entertainment.com, at in-theatre lobby kiosks, the box office, and on Emagine’s Smartphone app.

Since the 1989 founding of its predecessor, the Clarkston Cinema Corporation, Emagine has grown from one screen to its current multi-state footprint. The new Super EMAX at Emagine Canton/Westland is located at 39535 Ford Rd, Canton, MI 48187.
