After months of delays, the Maya Cinema Fresno 16 held a grand opening Friday that signaled the start of The Square at Campus Pointe shopping center.

The center, tucked between Chestnut Avenue and Highway 168 just east of Fresno State’s Save Mart Center, will soon have restaurants and more. Lance-Kashian & Company is the developer.

The movie theater is the fourth to open in the Maya chain. The lineup for the opening includes “Poltergeist,” “Tomorrowland,” “Mad Max: Fury Road,” “The Avengers: Age of Ultron,” “Pitch Perfect 2,” “Far from the Madding Crowd,” “Furious 7,” “The Water Diviner,” “Hot Pursuit” and “Monkey Kingdom.”

As part of the grand opening, there will be free popcorn and $1.50 hot dogs May 22-25. On Memorial Day, Monday, May 25, all veterans and active military get in free.

Along with traditional movie snacks, the cinema’s menu includes pizza, pretzels and the Maya Rock U Chili Bowl with Fritos, chili, melted cheese, sour cream, jalapenos and popcorn.
