Construction starts on new Ozark-Nixa theater

NIXA, MO — Municipal officials and B&B Theatres owner Bob Bagby jointly broke ground on September 24 for the construction of what will be the Ozark-Nixa Theater. This article, which also contains a short video, indicates that there will be no projection booths as the projection will be handled in a lobby area control room that patrons can observe.

The theater will also be attached to a 12,000 foot retail center.

Ozark has been trying to get a movie theater for several years and the project developer says he’s looked at four different sites before settling on this spot.

No projection booth.Makes sense haven’t had real operators in the business since my days managing in 1983.Might as well have the concessionstand girls run the movie.Sad.

I am sure they are going to harness the D-Cinema Projectors in the back of the auditoriums and pull all the control cable to the concession area. It saves a boat load on construction costs. Plus D-Cinema Machines are quiet and stable enough that the audience will not notice them.

Boy, the theatre business has changed since the early 80’s.
