New theater planned for Ozark
OZARK, MO — B&B Theatres is hoping that its new theater anticipated to be built here will be open by next Memorial Day weekend. It is estimated that the cost will be seven million. Initially, the theater will have ten screens, with the capacity to add two more, and is currently to be named the Ozark-Nixa Cinema.
The theater would be the only one in Christian County and the first located in Ozark in several decades. The Ozark Theater on the square closed in the late 1960s.
Thursday was the first time the company, based in Liberty, had publicly discussed the theater plans since word first spread in March 2009 that it was interested in building a theater in Ozark.
