RIDGEFIELD, CT_ Schimenti Construction will participate in the Grand Opening ceremonies of the Landmark Theatres at VIA 57 West, a mixed-use building at West 57th Street near the West Side Highway.

The venue will host a series of events leading up to the Sept. 14 Grand Opening which features the premiere of “Mother” featuring Academy Award winner Jennifer Lawrence. There will be an Open House on Sept. 12 for a public viewing of the space and a VIP event on the evening of Sept. 13.

The venue is home to eight state-of-the-art theatres.

The new theatres will feature stadium seating, theatres ranging from 22 seats to 170 seats, a custom bar and concessions with bronze, etched brass and solid wood finishes. The theatres will also feature laser projectors, leather electric recliner seats, and acoustical murals from Germany.
