Brooks added a “high-energy bar” and arcade will be among features at the theater.

“We are thrilled to make this announcement of expansion in our community,” Santikos Enterprises CEO Tim Handren said in a news release.

The announcement comes after the entertainment group pushed back its reopening of the Galaxy Theater on the Northeast Side to Nov. 22. It was originally set to open Friday.

The theater, located at 2938 NE Loop 410, was rebranded as the Rialto BrewHaus in 2003 but closed in July. It was gutted to reflect its original space-themed look.

The Galaxy Theater originally opened in 1979.
