Construction starts on new Pooler movie theater

POOLER, GA (WTOC) - Construction is under way for a new 12-screen movie theater in Pooler.

Aubrey Stone, president of Georgia Theatre Co., said in a statement the theater is scheduled to open by Thanksgiving and that it will later be expanded to 14 screens. "We have purchased in excess of 9 acres adjacent to the new Publix in Pooler Marketplace," Stone said.

The facility will have the latest Dolby stereo audio and Christie visual equipment with all digital projectors, including multiple 3D auditoriums.

The theater is one of the anchors at the new 36-acre Pooler Marketplace, which will include a Publix, retail shops and restaurants.
