Plot thickens for a new movie theater

— The Camps are almost there, Andrea Camp said.

And that means a new movie theater is closer to almost being here.

Andrea and Dale Camp owned four plots of land on the west side of town between the Holiday Inn and Timber Glen Apartments. For more than two years, they have waited to sell three of those plots so they would have the capital to build a six-screen movie theater.

The Camps just sold the second plot, which means one more and then the movie theater is a go.

"We have every plan to move forward," Andrea said. "We've done the feasibility study and the business plan."

The first plot sold to Josh Lawson, who owns Bad to the Bone, before this year.

The second plot recently sold to the Century Shree Corporation. What it plans to do with the land is uncertain at this time.

The Camps have talked with the Wingers franchise for a possible restaurant attachment. Wingers specializes in chicken wings, but also usually contains a sports bar area.

There has not been any contact with Wingers recently, and the Camps are not certain that will be the eatery chosen to accompany the movie theater, Andrea said.
