Phoenix, AZ — Aftermath, the nation’s largest theater chain, is bringing Blue Entertainment Centers to the Arizona Republic Building.
The theater chain has been working on the expansion since 2013, when it bought the existing theater in downtown Phoenix.
The first theater opened in downtown Tempe, and the remaining three will open this summer in Tempe and Phoenix.
The new theater will house three different programming areas.
“We have been very happy with the way Blue Entertainment centers have been receiving new and returning patrons,” said Matt Legg, CEO of Aftermath.
“We are thrilled to expand this area with Blue entertainment centers.”
The Phoenix location will be located near the University of Phoenix campus, a former military base in the city of Tempe.
The property was previously home to the Phoenix Children’s Museum.
At Blue Entertainment Centers, fans will see “Battleground,” a live musical featuring The Voice’s Justin Timberlake, The Rock, Sting, and The National, which premieres at 5:30 p.m. on June 12, and “Dumb and Dumber,” featuring Fred Armisen, Bill Hader, and Jon Hamm.
Fans can also watch the new shows at Blue Entertainment Centre.
Blue Entertainment Centers is one of the fastest growing movie and television venues in the United States.
The chain has seen more than 200 movie and TV shows, and it’s currently the number two theater chain in the country, according to Revenu.
Legg said the chain is excited to partner with the Republic to expand its footprint in the Republic Building, a historic building in downtown Arizona, where Aftermath operates three other theaters.
“This will be the first major expansion for Blue Entertainment,” Legg said.
“Phoenix is an exciting and vibrant city, and we’re thrilled to have Blue Entertainment expand to its new home in the building.
The Republic is the perfect location for our company to operate in.”
