Founded by the former executive management team of Muvico Theaters, Paragon Entertainment Group was established in 2009 to create a differentiated movie going experience that is superior to traditional movie theaters in comfort, technology, and amenities while still retaining a competitive price point. Paragon's "Affordable Luxury" theaters include such amenities as expanded food offerings, reserved seating, VIP luxury seats, bar/lounges, Sony 4K HD digital projection, and superior customer service.

The Florida-based Paragon Theaters has plans to begin construction on a 10-screen luxury theater at Posner Commons in Davenport, Florida at the prominent corner of I-4 and US 27.  The theater will be the entertainment anchor for this 630,000 square foot regional power center that includes tenants such as Target, Dick's Sporting Goods, Best Buy and more.
