Moving Fast

I travel through this part of Dickson City on a regular basis.  Either I haven't been observant, or the project has been moving rapidly, or a combination of both.  Above is the 14 screen Great Escape cineplex, under connstruction just off Commerce Boulevard.

One of the screens will be Imax equipped.  That means a bigger screen with higher definition than standard movies.

Looking back through WNEP's files, I see the theaters will provide more than fifty jobs.  It also translates into more businesses for all the stores and restaurants in the area.

Even though I haven't been to a movie in a couple years, it's nice to see some economic development during these difficult times.
