Angelika Plano Celebrates 3 Years!

March 28, 2008


The Angelika Film Center & Café at The Shops at Legacy celebrates its third year in operation as North Texasâ?? most upscale and stylish boutique cinema devoted to independent and specialty film. The Angelikaâ??s elegant interior, comfortable auditoriums featuring leather seating, and uncompromising standards of service make the Angelika Plano the cinema of choice for even the most discriminating filmgoers.


Originally hesitant to open an Angelika in a suburb, as its other locations are located in major metropolitan centers such as New York Cityâ??s fashionable Soho district, Ellen Cotter, Chief Operating Officer of Angelika Film Center & Café, was soon convinced that the sophisticated demographic in Plano and Collin County, together with a first class mixed use development, would create the perfect setting for an Angelika. â??The Shops at Legacy offers our guests a similar all-inclusive environment of shopping, award-winning restaurants, and exciting lounges and entertainment options that normally are only found in big cities,â? says Cotter, â??The Shops at Legacy was a natural choice for the Angelikaâ??s fourth location.â? Cotter says that filmgoers this season will be pleasantly surprised with the unique lineup of films scheduled for 2008. Some of the upcoming features include Smart People starring Dennis Quaid, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Ellen Page, Priceless starring Audrey Tautou, The Life Before Her Eyes starring Uma Thurman, Then She Found Me starring Colin Firth, among other exciting upcoming titles.


Terry Welch, General Manager of the Angelika, along with cinema industry veteran Tim Taylor, who is Vice President of the company, say to look for a new and improved café menu with an expansive new selection of fine wines along with enticing new appetizers and light fare coming soon.


Ideal for any social or business gathering, the Angelika Film Center & Café is the perfect venue to host a special event. The Angelika offers state of the art technical equipment, a dedicated event planner and a professional and courteous staff to ensure that any meeting or event is a success.
