The Peninsula Town Center Venue is Slated to Open in April 2022
EVO Entertainment Group, the nation’s largest operator of cinema-entertainment centers, announced today its plans for a new cinema-entertainment center to serve all communities in the Hampton Roads region of Virginia. Construction efforts on the 50,000 square foot venue are underway with an expected April 2022 opening. This will be EVO’s first venue in the state of Virginia and the first of the company’s flagship “EVO Entertainment” branded venues outside of Texas.
“We could not be any more excited to bring our brand of the entertainment experience to Hampton,” said EVO Founder & Chief Executive Officer Mitch Roberts. “We’ve spent a lot of time here and have fallen in love with the history and charm of this vibrant, diverse & family-focused community.”
The multi-tainment venue will feature an eight-screen dine-in cinema with push-button service and plush recliner seating, a nine-lane bowling center, state-of-the-art video arcade, restaurant and bar, plus private event space for birthday parties, company outings, and more.
Located within Peninsula Town Center at the site of the former Studio Movie Grill, EVO Entertainment Hampton will be situated with proximity to the Hampton Coliseum, the Hampton Roads Convention Center, and other popular retail and entertainment establishments. Beyond entertainment, EVO will employ more than 75 team members, further strengthening the region’s economy and bringing new job opportunities into the market.
Upon completion, this move will further expand EVO’s growing national footprint to 18 venues, 163 screens, 129 bowling lanes and over 45,000 combined square feet of gaming and attractions across five states.
