Are you saying that they are building one? If you go to imax.com and look for locations it doesn't show Kingsport. Closest is Knoxville but this would be great news!!

Why would they put an IMAX theater in A-NUS-ville rather than JC?

New theater coming to kingsport but not an IMAX. Big difference in what they are claiming they will do as to what an IMAX Theater is.

IMAX is royal only. Are you people really that stupid? This theater will be two screens less than the current theater in JC and will have the same amount of 3D screens. Its also a much smaller company than Carmike. Carmike is the 4th biggest chain in the US. I would imagine that if this theater actually is built and is as nice as advertised...you'll see a HUGE renovation if not a rebuild for the Carmike in JC....maybe even a Big D screen!(Big D is Carmikes answer to IMAX with 7.1 digital sound and a much larger screen...not to mention reclining seats and a private doorman to cater to your every need). There's also a cinemark in Bristol (3rd largest company). The Carmike and cinemark would bully the little company around and take away all rights to shows in the area (in case you didn't know...theaters have to bid for movies these days. Company's and distributors are going to choose the big player over a mom and pop place any day)

Jealous of what exactly? A stinky cess pool of uneducated, white trash? Redneck central? I wish that Kingsport would actually build some kind of entertainment & this would keep all of the redneck trash out of Johnson City. Keep your lowriders & guido mustaches over toward South West Virginia were it belongs.

City of Johnson you must be crazy. Better look in the mirror...your post says you are posting from Elizabethton. I worked in Elizabethton and trust me I have never seen more of a "stinky cess pool of uneducated white trash" as you say. Even worse is Unicoi, Erwin, and downtown Johnson City. I could not wait to get out of there. Bunch of inbreds that come down out of the mountains. Give me Kingsport ANY day. I worked in a doctor's office and saw unfit parents dragging around ratty little kids wearing diapers and no shoes out in public, men who come in the office with no shirt on and missing 1/2 their teeth, people trying to get drugs, people trying to get on disability when there is NOTHING wrong with them. I saw it all, every day.

I'm not even from JC. I don't give two poops about JC. I just know that you're not getting an IMAX because THEY ARE ONLY ALLOWED TO BE PUT UP IN REGAL THEATERS BECAUSE IT'S A REGAL NAME. please continue to show your ignorance

Yeah...why are you so insistent that Imax is owned by Regal. Google it! Imax is how a movie is filmed, it means ImageMAXimum. It is not exclusive to any one company, anyone can build a theater that gives you the MAXimum experience. And yes, even Franks theater in Kingsport can transform two standard theaters, too meet to specific requirements of an Imax film.
And another thing, using the word 'retard', tells us more about you, than the party in which you are speaking to.
