Meridian theater snapped up by global chain

Meridian’s Majestic Cinemas has a new owner: Cinemark.

The Dallas-based chain purchased the theater and another location in Walla Walla from Washington-based Hallett Cinemas. The Meridian Majestic opened on Overland Rd. in Meridian in 2005, sporting 18 screens and special features like open captioning.

Cinemark is the world’s third-largest theater owner, with more than 4,500 screens in the United States and nearly 6,000 globally.

The changeover happened Thursday according to the Walla Walla Union-Bulletin, and according to our friend Loren – branding is already up at the Meridian theater.

“We are so appreciative of the Hallett family and very excited to have such a great theatre join the Cinemark team,” Cinemark VP James Meredith said of the Walla Walla theater in an email obtained by the Union-Bulletin.

The Meridian Theater is now known as the Cinemark Majestic Cinemas. It is the first location for the chain in the State of Idaho.
