The Board of Alderman approved an amended developer's agreement on September 8, 2009, to bring an 8-screen uptown movie theatre to Ozark. The theatre will be located on a 5 acre site on Highway 14 behind Mitchum Jewelers and People's Bank inside the Town & Country subdivision. The theatre is scheduled to open in May of 2010.
B&B Theatres is the 29th largest theatre circuit in North America. The theater will use digital projection, allowing it to offer 3-D movies and show events such as live sporting games and concerts. Businesses can use the digital projection system for company meetings and presentations as well.
This is wonderful news, not just for the citizens of Ozark, but the clever location will be convenient for residents of Nixa as well. I am excited about the likelihood of the theatre attracting other new economic development in Ozark, in an area where economic development has slowed tremendously over the past few years. Once the improvements to the intersection at Highways 65 and 14 are completed, I expect to see that corrider thrive with new businesses anchored around the new theatre.
