Proposed for the 2.71-acre site now occupied by a movie theater and a closed buffet restaurant is a project that would include an expanded movie complex, a new Jack In the Box fast food restaurant (with drive-through lanes), a sit-down restaurant and an automatic car wash.
The developer is Cinemas Management, Inc. and according to the city staff report, the existing Four Star theater – with four auditoriums – would become a Starlight Cinema increased in size with a 2,846 expansion and reconfiguration to result in six auditoriums.
Total seating for the cinema will be reduced from 627 seats to 326 seats to allow for stadium-style seating with recliner seats. The existing vacant eatery would be demolished to make room for the development.
The new sit-down restaurant has not been identified, and the closed bowling alley at the south of the site is not part of the project, located at 12101 and 12111 Valley View St., south of Chapman Avenue.
The commission meets at 7 p.m. in the council chambers inside the Community Meeting Center, 11300 Stanford Ave.
