Site of New Movie Theater

The City of Richland is getting a new movie theater, and residents say they can't wait to take a seat.

Fairchild Cinemas is planning to build a new theater on Duportail Street.

It will be constructed right next to the Gold's Gym and Home Depot.

Nearby residents we spoke with today tell us having a theater in the area will motivate them to catch more flicks than they do right now.

"I think that's a great idea. I think it adds to the customer base up here, and we get some good stores up here" said Grant Ryan, West Richland resident.

"I think it's great. I just live right down the street and they're building restaurants and what have you, so it'd be convenient and I'm looking forward to it" said Rod Baugher, Richland resident.

This area of Richland has been expanding very rapidly recently.

In the past year, the Gold's Gym, a Sterling's restaurant and Bob's Burgers have all been built nearby.
