Cinemark Melrose Park, 1001 W. North Ave., in Melrose Park, will soon be getting a serious makeover. Cinemark Holdings, Inc., announced that the theater, which first opened in 1997, will undergo renovations and upgrades in a Jan. 10 statement.

“The renovation and upgrade will include adding Luxury Lounger reclining seats to all auditoriums,” the statement reads. “Cinemark Luxury Loungers are electric-powered, plush, oversize lounge chairs with footrests and cup holders.”

The company said that the renovations will start early this year and should be completed in time for the busy summer season.
