New Cinemark concept heading to La Plaza Mall

CUT by Cinemark's freshly prepared menu items include hand-stretched pizzas baked in an Italian stone oven, burgers, specialty sandwiches and more.

Something new is coming to La Plaza Mall in 2021: a brand new theater.

“Cinemark is excited to bring our new, fresh, dine-in theatre concept to McAllen,” said Mark Zoradi, Cinemark’s CEO, in a news release.

The theater, named CUT!, will feature eight screens and allow viewers to enjoy a meal while watching a movie.

This will be the second CUT! theater to open in Texas.

According to the news release, CUT! will offer freshly prepared foods; a number of beers, martinis, wines and cocktails; high-tech screens; and more features found in modern movie theaters.

Construction is expected to begin in April 2020, with plans to open the theater in 2021.
