Let's Talk Hot Off The Press...

Be on the Look out for the opening of...



Showtime is just three weeks away for CMX CinéBistro, an upscale dinner-and-a-movie destination launching Friday, Oct. 1, at Coastland Center mall in Naples. 

The new 35,000-square-foot freestanding cinema, built on the footprint of the longtime Sears store demolished years ago on the northwestern corner of the mall, marks a rebirth for Miami-based CMX Cinemas, which filed for bankruptcy last spring after the pandemic lockdown. 

The company has hired about 80 team members, including eight managers and an executive chef for Naples. The cinema has six movie screens, a full-service dinner menu, a full bar and a lounge. Patrons are advised to arrive a half-hour before the movie begins to place dinner orders so that meals are delivered to their seats before the show starts. 

Admission after 6 p.m. is only for patrons 21 and over.
