Movie Theater Headed for Loganville

Officials expect to make an announcement on which theater, and where it will be built, as early as Thursday.

On the heels of news of a roller rink coming to , 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.

I agree with having a local Stein Mart here in the city of Loganville and also a Kohl's there is plenty of space money is the issue. It would be grand to even have a Mall sit on land of the Walton Ponds.please update you all comments.

The skating rink has been in, but in Gwinnett, for a while. Still no update on the movie theater though. Everything went quiet again. I'll check this week and see if that means its been dropped - I certainly hope not!

The economy is improving and I hope all of this happens here in Loganville. I think it will work but I would like to see some of it in the Walton County area.

When will Walton county/Loganville get any kind of an entertainment outlet. If they open one more hair/nail salon I am going to scream... Plus we need some kind of a sea food place??? Capt'D's would be nice?? Instead of driving to Monroe or GRayson.
