After years of planning and anticipation, CRST’s 7th Generation Cinema is almost a reality.
Chairman Harold Frazier along with Tribal Treasurer Benita Clark and Tribal Secretary EvAnn White Feather visited the 7th Generation Cinemas jobsite to tour the facility and receive a status update from Rodney Cockeram.
Cockeram serves as the Project Manager for Scull Construction Services who oversees the project.
Cockeram said and he is excited to see the project completed and that he plans on buying tickets for the opening day.
The 7th Generation Cinema is expected to be completed in the next few weeks and will begin operation once staff is in place and arrangements have been made to have movies shown.
Chairman Harold Frazier remarked “I look forward to the theater being up and running.” Along with feature films, the chairman stated that he would like to see some films showcasing local actors and subjects.
Actual construction of the movie theater should be complete in the next couple of weeks.
The parking lot was laid with asphalt two weeks ago. The exterior signs and marquee were also installed.
The entrance into the cinema complex moved north about 20 yards, making it a true fourway intersection with Main Street. The entrance into the old IHS hospital was closed with curb and gutter.
The relocation of the sign has caused a little confusion to drivers who have become accustomed to decades of stopping in the old location and out of habit have stopped at the old location.
