For over 20 years, CityWalk has offered up fun dining and shopping experiences to visiting guests to the Universal Studios Hollywood Resort and now the vibrant area will become just a little bit brighter with new enchantments and updates.

“This is an exciting time as Universal CityWalk undergoes a transformation of its own,” said Larry Kurzweil, President of Universal Studios Hollywood. “For over two decades, CityWalk has been the go to place for locals and out-of-town visitors alike to enjoy a variety of entertainment, and we’re excited to bring these significant enhancements to our guests as we continue to invest in our world-class destination.”

Check out the details below of the new experiences that have opened and are on its way to Universal Hollywood CityWalk

Universal Cinemas


CityWalk’s revitalization will elevate the Universal Cinemas to new heights as the 18 screen and IMAX 3D theatre updates with the most technologically advanced sight and sound achievements.  A complete refurbishment of the split level structure will include the installation of deluxe recliner seats to all 18 theatres—the equivalent of those found in Hollywood screening rooms—making every seat, the best seat in the house.

An all-new dedicated and stylish second level bar-lounge, flanked by the upper level theatres, will add a new dimension to the space as it blends high-tech elegance with chic sophistication for casual pre- and post- movie-going fun.

Each redesigned theatre will be fully upgraded with Christie RGB Laser projection Dolby Atmos immersive surround sound and equipped with Christie Vive speakers for optimal audio performance.  The installation of new, state-of-the art screens, perforated to enable 360 degree audio will complement the overall enhancements.
