Starplex cinema coming to Ashburn

Starplex Cinemas will open an 11-screen movie theater in Ashburn as part of a new development called Loudoun Station being built along the Dulles Greenway at Shellhorn Road.

Developer Comstock Partners broke ground on the project this spring and ultimately plans more than 3 million square feet, including offices, restaurants, shopping and 1,500 new apartments or condominiums.

The project will also be immediately accessible by the last stop on the first leg of Metro’s Silver Line when it opens in 2014.

The theater is scheduled to open on Central Station Drive in 2014 and will feature “first-run films in state-of-the-art auditoriums at affordable prices.”

Though Starplex theaters aren’t of the luxury variety, the Dallas company joins a growing number of cinema chains that are opening new locations in the Washington area.

“We are very excited about this new location and would like to be known as a family-oriented movie theater with affordable prices the entire clan can enjoy,” said Tod Hanna , Starplex chief operating, in a statement.
