Today the city of Muscatine will get to finally show off its new theater.

City leaders broke ground in July for the new 10-plex movie theater after local firefighters cleared the land, burning down existing buildings as a training experience. The construction's now finished, and the 30,000 square foot development is ready to open.

One of the first movies that will be shown at the Palms theaters will be "Oz the Great and Powerful." The new theater is at the corner of highway 61 and Mulberry Avenue, on the north side of the city. Wednesday, TV-6 took a walk through to give you a showing of this brand new 10-plex theater.

The overall project cost just about 9 million dollars and will feature everything from concessions to party rooms. Like most movie theaters you can purchase tickets from a ticket seller, at a kiosk or reserve them online.

The auditoriums will range from 75 seats up to the palm's big screen, a 249-seat theater with Dolby Atmos sound, giving movie goers an experience similar to going to an IMAX theater. That screen is 53 feet wide and three stories tall and will cost $2 more a ticket.

On top of all of that, the operations manager says there will be a special theater reserved for adults, 21 and older.

The way it will work, they will designate an auditorium or specific theater to serve beer, wine and mixed drinks. They'll pour from a portable bar, which will only serve the specific auditorium. That way they can facilitate who is drinking and contain the alcohol to that theater.

Aside from the theater itself, city leaders are hopeful the new multi-plex will attract other businesses with open land near the venue.

"It's not only the Fridley theater lot and the building, but the development of the land and the out-lots of the building. Palms drive we've put in and we've also increased Mulberry's turning lane and did some work on there," said Operations director Russell Vanndorsel.

The theater is already on websites like www.movietickets.com.
