Wausau City leaders and representatives from Micon came together on Friday to answer questions about converting the old downtown Sears building into a movie theater.
The project includes the city giving the company a one million dollar forgivable loan with a price tag of $2 million for taxpayers.
Micon officials said they expect the theater to have a ripple effect on local businesses.
"I think they would benefit from it and I think it would be a great partnership with the City of Wausau," said Dan Olson of Micon. "It's great diversity."
Construction is expected to start this spring and should take about a year to complete.
For the first time, a Wausau office dragged by a fleeing driver is speaking out.
Some sunshine Thursday, showers possible Friday but mild.
