New theater opens in Wagner, SD
WAGNER, SD — The last time Wagner had an operating movie theater, “Jaws” was the featured first-run attraction. Now a new Wagner Theater has opened, co-owned by two couples who converted a former hardware and outdoor equipment store by performing much of the work themselves. The new single screen theater has stadium seating, digital projection and surround sound.
Cerny praised the initiative shown in starting the theater, given that a previous volunteer effort failed. He anticipated the new theater will draw customers from as far as Fairfax and northern Nebraska towns such as Spencer.
“This one will give a much needed amenity to people in town here,” Cerny said. “I think people in the area are kind of hungry for a theater. … It took a lot of hard work and a lot of risk to do this venture.”
