Bringing Hollywood to south end

It’s about time!
A potential first-run movie theater in south Macomb County.
Since the Woods, Beacon East, Shores and Eastland theaters have closed over the years, movie-goers in the Grosse Pointes, St. Clair Shores, Roseville, Eastpointe and Harper Woods have had no nearby options to view the new offerings from Hollywood.
That may change with Emagine possibly opening at 12 Mile and Little Mack in the Shores.
I originally thought the site may not be able to fit the facility. But if Emagine takes over the office building next to the commercial property, it appears there should be plenty of room. I don't think parking issues would thwart the project like it thwarted a plan a few years ago to expand the old Shores Theatre on Greater Mack at 9 Mile a few years ago as well as more recently Emagine's planned theater facility at a Grosse Pointe site.
But hopefully city and Emagine officials work it out. South Macombers deserve the ability to avoid trekking to Warren, Clinton Township or Sterling Heights to catch the latest flick.
