UK exhibitor Vue Entertainment will open its new $4m (£2m) Merthyr Tydfil multiplex on Sept 26.
The eight-screen, stadium-seating cinema in South Wales will make use of Dolby Digital Surround Sound and digital projectors.
The site is also digital 3D enabled and will show 3D animated Fly Me To The Moon from Oct 3.
In addition to films, the Vue multiplex will offer 'Larger than Live' screenings of music, sport and comedy via satellite links.
Vue CEO Tim Richards said: 'We are delighted to be bringing a new state-of-the-art cinema to Merthyr Tydfil. Our aim is to provide all guests a unique leisure experience and offer a variety of seating options for a higher level of comfort. We now look forward to welcoming and serving the local community of Merthyr Tydfil for many years to come.'
