BRYAN - Construction on the new IMAX 3D theatre has started at the Premiere Cinema. The new cinema will provide the only IMAX experience within a 90-mile radius. According to state filings the renovation is estimated at $1.5 million.

Construction plans on the 58,000-sf project include converting two of Premiere's existing theatres into one wide auditorium to make room for the massive, five-story IMAX screen and 350 reclining leather seats.

Premiere will also install a Starbucks, a fireside wine and beer bar, and an in-auditorium dining option through their restaurant, Backstage Bistro.

Bryan Business Council, the City of Bryan and IMAX Corporation are all collaborating on the project. The Bryan Business Council played an integral role in negotiating a half-million dollar loan for the project, consisting of 5 percent interest over a period of 60 months.

Although no funds from City of Bryan taxpayers were included, the new IMAX 3D theatre is guaranteed to add value to the Bryan-College Station community.

IMAX currently has approximately 700 theatres in 52 countries.
