GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — A developer working to build a movie theater in Grand Rapids’ Arena District has received another extension on the project.
The Downtown Development Authority granted the second six-month extension to the owners of Celebration Cinema on Wednesday. The developer plans to build a theater, housing and retail project in what is currently a parking lot off Ionia Avenue SW near Van Andel Arena.
The developer, Jackson Entertainment, LLC, agreed to pay the DDA $60,000 for the extension. That will be deducted from the purchase price if Jackson Entertainment decides to buy the land.
