Tacoma’s Grand Cinema adding fourth screen
TACOMA, WA — The Grand Cinema in Tacoma is adding a fourth screen, expanding its lobby area, and replacing all of the theater’s seats.
Cowan, the Tacoma theater’s executive director, has just announced detailed plans for the cinema’s expansion. Come September, the nonprofit art-house movie theater will expand into the adjacent area formerly leased to the Grand Impromptu art gallery to create a fourth screen, central ticketing desk and larger lobby and concessions stand. The construction is slated to finish by December this year.
“What’s exciting is the program: We’ll be able to play 33 percent more films, maybe even more,” said Cowan. “It’ll enable us to bring in more smaller films, more independent films, some film series, even art movies partnered with Tacoma Art Museum.”
