HATTIESBURG, Miss. (WHLT) – Pretty soon movie goers in Hattiesburg will have a new type of movie experience.
Right inside Turtle Creek Mall, Southwest Movie Theaters out of Austin, Texas is remodeling the old Grand Theater location.
Owners tell us they expect to be open by the time the new Star Wars movie comes out in December.
They’re calling it a luxury styled theater.
“We’re going to have brand new seats. They’re recliners, so you’ll be able to reserve them and you won’t have to wait and have to come early for movies,” Co-owner Nathan Searer explained the benefits he theater will offer.
The theater will have nine screens which will seat anywhere from 60 to 160 people.
It’ll also bring more jobs to the Hub City. WHLT keep you updated once that process begins.
