Talk intensifying over Vicksburg cinema
VICKSBURG, MS — Something is going on within the city of Vicksburg all of sudden. During the summer, the talk of a new cinema died down. Now the talk around town has started again. I’ve been trying to track down what it’s all about but so far—nothing. I had two sources who verified the talk part. But something is going on.
Second former Alderwoman Gertrude Young who frequently adds her commentary on the Live local talk show, “Live from the Klondike,” has frequently been bragging the fact that she has been in touch with new cinema investors. On the last one I heard, she spoke of cinema subsidiary Viacom Inc. I found out that would be Odeon Cinemas in the Northeast. I learned too that Odeon Cinemas wouldn’t open a cinema in this part of the country.
All of sudden she’s dropped off the radar screen on the subject. One more thing: people and I suspect tourists as well are wondering why the city of Vicksburg, with a population of 25,000 doesn’t have a cinema. But talk is increasing and growing.
