A movie theater is still in the works for the vacant Sears building in downtown Wausau. Christian Schock, the planning, community and economic development director for the city updated city council Tuesday evening.
Schock said a developer is still working with Micon Cinema to take over the space which has been vacant for over a year.
"Those discussions have gone well," said Schock. "We think there's some alignment on the parties and working together, there have been many discussions between the mall owner, the manager, Micon and the potential developers who are interested."
Schock said getting this done quickly is a priority. He said he hopes to have a proposal for the city's economic development committee Jan. 18.
