New movie theater in Savannah opening in old Frank Theater on Victory Dr.
SAVANNAH, Ga. (WTOC) - A new movie theater opening in Savannah is looking to fill dozens of jobs.
Neighborhood Cinema Group is completing renovations on their new location on Victory Drive in Savannah. They are renovating the old Frank Theater after being shuttered for several years.
“Even just today my taxi driver on the way from the airport to the hotel...my driver knew exactly where the location was. He’s been wondering what’s going on with the construction,” said Christa Molter, Chief People Officer for NCG.
Molter said they’re giving it a makeover.
“A lot of locals already excited to embrace us and welcome us into the neighborhood.”
It might not look like it yet, but they’re just weeks away from completing renovations. We got a sneak peek of the progress. Molter said it’s starting to come together.
“We’ve had our eyes on Savannah for a while,” she said. “This is an up and coming community and we’re just thrilled to be a part of it.”
The theater will also host a job fair and they’re expecting hundreds of people to show up. Molter said they’re ready to hire a full staff and be a part of the neighborhood.
“You come here you have fun. You make a difference in someone’s life and you go home and it’s wonderful.”
The building upgrades include state of the art Dolby technology, expanded ceilings, new luxury seats, modern finishes throughout and an updated exterior.
They will offer other luxuries, such as free refills on drinks and popcorn, reserved seating, and special perks for My NCG Rewards loyalty members.
They hope to have the theater completed and opened by the end of February, in time for the premiere of “The Batman.”
The theater will host a grand opening community event in the coming months.
NCG Cinema is looking to hire 40 qualified candidates for their new location at Victory Drive and Skidaway Road in Savannah.
The theater has immediate openings for full and part time positions in all roles including concessions, usher, box office, maintenance and janitorial, and assistant managers.
The job fair will take place at the new theater, 1901 East Victory Drive, on Saturday, Feb. 5 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Interested candidates can sign up in advance at https://ncgmovies.com/savannah-job-fair/ to reserve an interview time during the job fair. All candidates who participate in the job fair will receive a free movie pass.
