Movie Theater Project Proposed for Downtown GR E-mail
A new 60,000 sq. ft. mixed-use building that includes a movie theater has been proposed for the Area 5 parking lot on Ionia Ave SW & Oakes. Loeks Theatres presented the project at today's Downtown Development Authority meeting. The multi-level building would likely have restaurants and retail space on the first floor, with theaters above. The movie theater space would be available for lease during the day by educational and convention groups needing AV equipment and room presentations and show first-run national movies during the afternoons and evenings.

No timeframe for construction has been announced and the cost of the project has not been released.

In March, the Downtown Development Authority voted to approve a reconstruction of Oakes SW between Market and Ottawa that will include placement of trees, ornamental street lights and underground high-voltage electrical systems.
