Worldcenter’s Retail Space Now Expected To Include A Movie Theater, Restaurant Row

Miami Worldcenter’s leasing agent has detailed plans to fill 300,000 square feet of retail space at the $4 billion project, in an interview with Costar.

The retail will be anchored by a “restaurant row” and a movie theater.

In addition to local restaurants and cafes, there will be “clubstaurants” that start as quiet restaurants during the day and become more like clubs at night.

The movie theater will be large, high end, and “very attractive and accessible,” the broker said.

Retail space at the project will be a combination of uses, catering to locals, families, and tourists.

The first retail spaces are already under construction, with delivery expected in less than a year.

I love those types. Valentinos in the grove, back in the early 2000’s comes to mind. Yes, I’m that old. lol.

Damn dude. You just took me back to those day in the Grove. lol. Club St. Croix on Sunday nights and Valentinos on Saturday nights. It was the first time I ever saw a concept with Valentinos. A nice quiet restaurant to eat, then come 9pm or so, tables disappeared in seconds
and into a full fledged club. literally night and day bi polar. I had some great nights there.

Also, can we get a Lucky Strike? Dave & Buster? Maybe an indoor ice skating rink? Something we don’t have in the city center would be nice!!!!

YASSSS!!! Can we get an AMC or Regal? I don’t need a full service bar and a restaurant in my move theater. I went home a few weeks ago and was literally dumbstruck…movies there still cost $8 a ticket!!!! Can you believe that?

They seem to be desperately looking for anchors because proposing another movie theater looks like they are running out of ideas. I guess the rush for food halls will soon be a thing of the past due to the many options and half way execution on most of them. Why not a bowling alley or seriously bring Eataly to Miami; I am sure it will kick La Centrale’s behind or even Mercado Little Spain of Jose Andres.

Why everything need to be upscale?! Why not a regular movie theatre? Sometimes, all I want is to watch a good movie.

It’ll be interesting where exactly this movie theater positions itself within the market. Hard to imagine with CMX and SilverSpot within a mile or so, that there’s a lot of room for yet another luxury movie theater. We shall see.

I believe the market is there. SilverSpot is always busy with no available seats. I would actually like this one at Worldcenter

I bet there are plenty of seats available Monday – Thursday. A theater is not a wise play here. It’s a single purpose building that is hard to convert if it doesn’t work out.

Just like TV killed them, then color TV, then cable, then HBO, then PPV, then Blockbuster, then HD TVs, then Netflix, etc. etc. Until you have a 70′ screen at home theaters will exist.

Bingo! I purchased a 75 inch TV back in November. At first, I was reluctant to buy it, but now, I wish I hadn’t been so hesitant. One of the best purchases I’ve ever had in my life. And you know what.. I wish it was 82 inches.

MWC is interdependent on two projects, Skyrise and the convention hotel. Without these two, they have no chance of success.

Its not dependent on skyrise, its more dependent on the convention/hotel and events/games at the AAA.

Skyrise will be the biggest catalyst for drawing crowds downtown. People will go through here to get to Skyrise. How can it not be dependent?

Miami used to have more than three movie theaters in the 1960s. It’s competition of smaller boutique theaters.

99% of movies being released not worth $5 price of admission, let alone $30. New downtown theatres already losing money. Most films will be released thru streaming services in near future, so I don’t see the upside.

People still like going to the movie theaters to get out of the house with friends and/or date and to see who else they see…among many other things. I’m in my early 40’s and have 5 streaming services, but I like the theatre -getting out of my house – experience as well. It’s a nice option.

Same here. Pay for several streaming services but still like to go to a theater at least once a month.

Great analysis.
Attendance in theaters was +6.7% last year and the US did $11.9B in ticket sales.
The Miami/Ft Lauderdale MSA theaters sold $163.5M in tickets alone last year (does not inc. food & drink).
