You'll also be able to rent rooms in the center for private parties, view 4D movies and live shows in a theater, and participate in virtual reality experiences like the Nerve "motorcycle thrill experience".
The studio is working with the Spanish leisure park operator Parques Reunidos to bring many of its properties to life as part of Lionsgate Entertainment City. The company is planning similar parks in China and Dubai.
Lionsgate is also hoping to find other ways of monetizing its back catalogue, with a 125-city La La Land in Concert tour recently started and rumors of a Broadway transition for the film still circulating. Lionsgate Entertainment City will be our sixth IEC, following the five we announced in 2016 which are underway in Europe.
"We are very excited to collaborate with Lionsgate in this new project, which is a big milestone for our strategy to develop Indoor Entertainment Centers (IECs) in shopping malls and landmark buildings".
The main attraction will be a Hunger Games-themed flying simulator attraction that will take guests on a rescue mission to the Captiol.
Lionsgate Entertainment City is expected to attract more than 50 million guests per year and given the great location and the popular properties coming to the indoor entertainment center, this certainly seems likely. The indoor theme park Lionsgate Entertainment World is now under development in Hengqin, China, and the Lionsgate Zone of the Motiongate theme park is slated to open in Dubai later this fall.
The first major new studio in decades, Lionsgate is a global content platform whose films, television series, digital products and linear and over-the-top platforms reach next generation audiences around the world. Parques Reunidos is present in 14 countries in the Americas, Europe, Middle East and Asia, receiving approximately 20 million visitors per year.
