Twelve-screen multiplex planned for Wasilla
WASILLA, AK — Coming Attractions Theaters, based on Ashland Oregon, is planning to build a multiplex here with a dozen screens. If financing is secured, and the project built, it may force the town’s current triplex, the Mat-Su, to close.
Schweiger owns Coming Attractions Theatres Inc., based in Ashland, Ore. He said he’s been traveling between Alaska and Oregon for two years, working on the project.
He said Wasilla — and the Valley market — is appealing because it’s the right-sized community and a fast-growing area. That, and “Oregon’s full,” he said.
Schweiger said he’s invested heavily in architecture and engineering designs for the project and has traveled to Wasilla several times to walk the property, which his company purchased this summer, and work out details. He hopes the deal goes through.
