The public is invited to celebrate the official groundbreaking of the Patriot 12 Cinema this week.
The groundbreaking event will be held on Wednesday at 3 p.m. at the Patriot 12 Cinema site located at the corner of Old Highway H and GW Lane Road
The ground breaking event represents the final step in the process to acquire the new theatre site between B&B Theatres, the City of Waynesville and Havens Commercial LLC.
"The developer has been clearing land and bringing the hillside down up until this point but we are now ready to begin working on the theatre building site and could not be more excited," Bob Bagby, President of B&B Theatres said.
"We have a 23-year relationship with Waynesville, St. Robert and Fort Leonard Wood communities and this new state-of-the-art theatre will cement that relationship for decades to come"
Larry Snyder Construction of Ozark has been selected as the General Contractor for the project and Guaranty Bank of Springfield will provide the financing.
The Patriot 12 Cinema will feature stadium seating in all auditoriums and some will have 3D projection technology. All auditoriums will feature B&B's latest design, with Dolby 7.1 digital surround sound as well as wall-to-wall curved screens.
