Work Starts at Site for New IMAX Theater in Sparks

SPARKS, Nev. (AP) - Work has begun at the site of a new Galaxy IMAX Theaters being built at the Outlets at Legends mall near the Sparks Marina.

Bulldozers and excavators began moving dirt at the site this week.

Dennis McGovern, general manager of the retail center, says they haven't set an opening date for the theater yet. But he tells the Reno Gazette-Journal crews will get started on construction as soon as permits, weather and other factors are settled.

The Legends theater complex will have 12 screens, including 3-D options and Galaxy's first IMAX auditorium. Galaxy officials expect they will need to hire 40 to 50 people.

Galaxy owns more than a dozen theaters across four states, including the 10-screen Fandango complex in Carson City.
