BLACKFOOT — The Greater Blackfoot Area Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Julie Ann Goodrich, in conjunction with Mayor Paul Loomis, are pleased to announce that Kent & Ingrid Lott, owner of the Blackfoot Movie Mill, will be opening a new seven-plex movie theatre in the old Blackfoot Motors building on Bridge Street June 2018.
This has been a collaborative partnership between the Greater Blackfoot Area Chamber of Commerce, Mayor Loomis, City Economic Development Director Kurt Hibbert, Bingham County, and the regional economic development organization REDI.
The Blackfoot Movie Mill will show first run movies offering adult tickets at $7.00 and matinee, child, and senior tickets at $5.00. Concession prices are going to be much lower than other establishments, with combo prices (2 drinks and popcorn) being about the same price as a single drink at other establishments. This price matrix will make the Blackfoot Movie Mill the destination venue of choice for entertainment in our region.
This theatre in Blackfoot will sport cutting edge laser projection technology, which provides a significantly brighter and clearer picture than traditional theatres, surround sound, stadium seating, family atmosphere, and offer kid friendly summer-programs as well as accommodate corporate and business use of the facilities.
With this new development project, chain eateries that have previously discussed starting up in Blackfoot, have renewed interest and are planning on locating in this new “entertainment district” creating an eat, play, and stay destination environment in the City.
“This is a huge win for the City and the Blackfoot Urban Renewal Agency as it will be located right in the heart of the historic downtown revitalization area,” said Mayor Loomis. “The City will continue to strongly support business development and economic growth through partnerships with the Chamber and Regional Economic Development organizations.”
