OAKLEY, OH (FOX19) -

Area residents will be able to enjoy a night out at the movies in Oakley this summer.

The new Cinemark Theater is nearing completion at Oakley Station, a $120 million project on 74 acres of mixed-use land.

The developers, Vandercar Holdings Inc., believe the Oakley Station will be a big boost for the City of Cincinnati.

The site is located on the east side of Interstate 71 and Ridge Road, and it will have more than 300 apartments,  a 14 screen movie theater and not to mention, the largest Kroger in Greater Cincinnati.

"We need more grocery stores and entertainment. I think it's a plus," resident Cornelia Beamon told FOX19's Jessica Brown.

Developers say they also plan to add offices, retailers and restaurants to the site.

Nearby local business owner Tracy Monson of Essencha Tea House says the project is a plus for the community.

"It'll be nice. Hopefully it will bring some more people to this side of town, as opposed to just the square," said Monson.

Oakley Station developers say they will be finished with the streets and utilities by end of June.

Thirty-three of the 'Boulevard at Oakley Station' apartments will be available by mid-July. A specific opening date for the Cinemark Theater has not yet been confirmed.

The Kroger store is expected to be completed by 2015.
