KERRVILLE, TX — It was recently announced that Rio Entertainment, which already leases the Plaza 6 theater here, has started construction on a new state of the art 10 screen cinema with all stadium seating and digital sound. The target is December 2005 with a Christmas opening date.

Word is that the Plaza 6 would remain open once the new location opens and instead of showing first run films the Plaza, it would then run art films instead.

Texas Cinemas, out of San Marcos, Texas, which has two theaters there (The Showplace 3 and Starplex 12) also said they would begin construction on a new 12 screen theater to be called GateWay 12 with all staduim seating and digital sound. It will be located at the corner of Ih10 & Sidneybaker in a new shopping center project.

UPDATE: Texas Cinemas announced today that they are not going to build a theatre here due to the fact they dont think the market can support 28 screens and also in the wake of rio entertainments rapid progress of contsruction of their new cinema 10 so that leaves kerrville with just rio entertainments two complexes yepe! I am hoping that another chain like cinemark or regal or amc will look at kerrville and give rio a run for their money.
