The theater company is trying to get its new 14-screen movieplex on River Watch Parkway open by then, said chairman and CEO Bill Stembler. Steel and concrete block walls are still being erected on the site near Costco and Cabela’s in west Augusta. Rainy weather has made the construction slow going, Stembler said. “We’re working around the clock. You can see how muddy it is now,” said Bo Chambliss, the president of the St. Simons Island, Ga. -based company. The new theater will be the first in the company where every seat is a full electric recliner. It is also adopting the concept of dinner and a movie in one location: A 4,000-square-foot restaurant inside the theater will offer an American bistro menu and a full-service bar. Chambliss said the company is changing its Web site to allow people to buy tickets online, to be followed by a smartphone app that allows online ticket purchases separate from Fandango. Chambliss said he expects the app to be ready by the time the new Augusta theater is open. The big wall is up – the four-story one that will back the 80-foot-wide, 40-foot-high Georgia Theatre Xtreme (GTX) screen, the company’s premium digital competitor to IMAX.
STOUGHTON (AP) - At the new Norwegian heritage center in Stoughton, 33 video screens dominate one wall, forming a large, interactive mosaic. The Wisconsin State Journal reports that Stoughton, a city of about 13,000 people 18 miles southeast of Madison, has long capitalized on its Norwegian roots. The heritage center's grand opening Saturday will coincide with the city's annual Syttende Mai celebration, which honors Norwegian Constitution Day. In designing the center, its creators sought to complement existing attractions in Stoughton, not compete with them. "This is about helping the city and doing what we can to make it more of a destination than a pass-through community," said June Bunting, executive director of the Bryant Foundation, which built the center and will be its sole funding source going... The Stoughton-based foundation was established in 1993 by Janet L. Bryant to honor her late husband, Edwin E. Bryant, a co-founder of the Nelson Muffler Corp. The foundation did no public fundraising for the center and will not charge admission. Gryttenholm, who serves on the Bryant Foundation's board, said the foundation is choosing not to reveal the project's cost.
The road to Brek Shea’s house snakes through the jungle-like forest. His house resembles an oversized, suburban cabana, except with a big, granite-countertop kitchen and cathedral ceilings. Brek and his long-time girlfriend, Carling – named, like all women in her family, for her ancestors, who started the famous Canadian beer company – only moved in a few weeks ago after bouncing between hotels for six months. Eric Avila, Shea’s Orlando City Soccer Club teammate and close friend, moved in soon after. Only the TV room is set up, with white couches and a pool table-sized flat-screen. Nothing adorns the walls but a Texan flag. a wine cooler with a soccer ball painted on it. the pink sneakers Shea designed himself – is the upshot of the nomadic existence of a professional athlete. In a few weeks, one of his brothers will drive a U-Haul from Texas with his many artworks and painting supplies, as well as a gun collection of mysterious quantity – “More than I’d want to admit. more than my mom would want to know that I have,” Shea says with a smile. Oh, and his brother will bring some furniture as well.
