On the heels of news of a roller rink coming to Loganville, officials expect soon to announce a movie theater is set to follow.
“We are entertaining a movie theater and have a couple of people looking so heavily we expect to have an announcement as to who and where it is going by Thursday,” said City Manager Bill Jones, adding that the city has been working with developers and movie theaters for a while and have two potential sites and a third theater group also strongly considering the city.
“It will take about 18 months to build so we can expect it in the spring or fall of 2013,” Jones said, adding it would be a multi-screen theater. “We’re looking at 12 to 17 screens.”
Jones said some of the movie theater conglomerates the city has been courting range from “the big boys to some very strong independents.”
“That’s just one more piece of what we’re looking at for the families in Loganville – we expected to be able to announce this even before the skating rink,” Jones said, hinting there would be more announcements to follow, including some popular clothing store lines.
