A theater chain is one step closer to building an entertainment complex in downtown Queen Creek. During their June 5 meeting, members of the Queen Creek Town Council voted unanimously to approve a site plan for phase one of the movie theater complex being proposed by Los Angeles-based Maya Cinemas. If completed as planned, the complex would occupy a 19-acre parcel of town- owned property north of Maya Boulevard, south of Rittenhouse Road, east of Ellsworth Loop Road and west of Ellsworth Road, according to a staff report to the council.
The town would serve as landlord for the project, but could negotiate a sale or lease of the property, according to Wayne Balmer, the town’s planning administrator.
Phase one of the three-phase plan includes a 59,000-square-foot, 2,300-seat theater; 7,500 square feet of restaurants, retail space and parking, according to the report.

He remembers when senior program technician Tammy Kelly parked her camper outside the arena to catch sleep in between coordinating stalls for horses and getting RVs hooked up for event contestants arriving to the park late at night.
