AmStar 14 at Brannon Crossing will convert to a Movie Tavern later this year.
Both AmStar and Movie Tavern are subsidiaries of New Orleans-based Southern Theatres, which acquired Movie Tavern in 2013.
Movie Tavern has 19 theaters in states from Colorado to Texas. It operates its sole current Kentucky theater in Lexington.
The theater renovations might not begin until May, but the theater will remain open while being renovated. The Movie Tavern will include in-theater dining and a bar area.
Never miss a local story.
"We're trying to avoid closing down for any period of time," said Anisa Blanks, marketing manager for Dallas-based Movie Tavern.
Plans are for renovations to be completed by the end of the summer, Blanks said.
