Putting Terrell on the Map: Largest Entertainment Center in East Texas

By  | 

Kaufman County and Terrell officials joined the Schulman family in a groundbreaking ceremony on Thursday, August 3, marking the commencement of work at the Crossroads at Terrell — a leading development in Kaufman County which is Texas-sized to say the least! The 74,000-square-foot complex called Film Alley Movie Entertainment Center will feature eight dine-in areas supplied by a scratch kitchen, a 4,500-square-foot arcade, 24 bowling lanes, and a bar and grille which will be central to the facility.

Located at Spur 557, Interstate 20, and Farm-to-Market (FM) 148, construction of Film Alley is anticipated to commence next month, with an opening scheduled for September 2018. In a report by Inforney.com, Kaufman County Judge Bruce Wood said of this milestone groundbreaking: “When people have a common purpose and work together, amazing things can happen. That’s exactly what is happening in this area.”

The all-digital dining auditoriums will have full-service as well as reclining seating and will include an immersive sound and a large-format auditorium. As a major anchor to the Crossroads at Terrell – a 255-acre master-planned retail and mixed-use development project – Film Alley looks to be a major draw and complement to the area. Adjacent to the Terrell Market Center, which houses a Buc-ee’s and will be the future home of a Baylor, Scott & White medical corridor, several other complementing tenants will soon be signing on to develop at Crossroads at Terrell. Chipotle, Freddy’s Frozen Custard, and Steakburgers are all opening or have opened in the vicinity, making this part of Texas, just east of Dallas a pretty sweet economic development deal! If you’re ready to get your shop on, enjoy some family bowling and movie time, and get a great variety of food service selection in one stop, Terrell’s Film Alley Movie Entertainment Center could be your 2018 home-away-from-home!
