The new Emagine Hartland presents Night on the Red Carpet, a celebration for charity at 6 p.m. Friday, Dec. 14, 2018. All proceeds from the theater debut event will benefit two local charities, LACASA Center and Gleaners Community Food Bank.
The public is invited to attend this ticketed event and will receive “star treatment” from the moment they arrive. Valet parking, live entertainment, open bar and hors d’oeuvres, photo ops, stellar films, and concessions will be offered.
This private celebration allows film buffs and movie lovers to explore the 55,000 square-foot facility at their leisure. Guests can view full-length films throughout the evening, or visit any of the 10 theaters to get quick previews of various movies. The theater does not open to the public until the following day.
The Emagine Hartland venue features luxury amenities, including heated electronic reclining seats, which is a first for the Emagine chain in Michigan. All 10 auditoriums are equipped with state-of-the-art viewing technology, 7.1 audio in all auditoriums and pure laser digital cinema projectors, another first in Michigan. The EMAX theater offers floor-to-ceiling viewing and Dolby Atoms Sound. Every auditorium has stadium seating with unobstructed views.
Emagine is hosting the Night on the Red Carpet event and 100 percent of the ticket proceeds will be shared equally between Gleaners and LACASA. The theater is located at 10495 Hartland Square Drive, Hartland.
