Your days of driving all the way to Dallas to see good movies are numbered, friends. In a city known for its love of art and world class museums The Citizen will be Fort Worth's first twin screen art-house theater. In addition to showing amazing new and repertory films we will also serve fresh gourmet concessions from Spiral Diner’s treasure trove of dessert recipes along with a top notch beer and wine selection. At The Citizen we take the film going experience to heart and will show all films with state-of-the-art sound and projection. The theater's design will hearken back to the most beautiful classic movie palaces. Our design team consist of architect Joe Self of Firm 817 and Interior Designer Kara Keith of The Usual fame. We also have Jack Panzeca and his good folks at Universal Cinema Services as consultants and to help us outfit the theaters with the most state-of-art technical equipment for the best picture and sound. Also, throughout the design and construction process we will strive to meet and exceed LEED standards. This would make The Citizen one of a handful of LEED certified cinemas in the country.
Owner, Amy McNutt, creator/owner of the Spiral Diner & Bakery chain of award-winning vegan restaurants, not only has considerable experience creating and running every aspect of a highly demanding business, she also has a degree from the top-rated film school in the country, The University of Southern California School of Cinema-Television. Opening a twin-screen theater is something she's been dreaming of and planning for the last 10 years and it's going to be awesome.
The Citizen Theater will be located on the corner of Fairmount and Magnolia in the heart of the near Southside. We are currently in the design and permitting phase and are set to start construction next year. We are accepting individual investors.
