The new Magic Lantern four-screen cinema planned for downtown North Battleford is almost here.
“The first shovel went into the ground today,” Mayor Ryan Bater said following council Monday.
“This has been a couple of years in the works,” he added. It’s going to be a major addition to downtown and a significant anchor. It’s going to bring people. It’s going to bring consumers. It’s going to add to the quality of life because of the entertainment offerings in this community. It’s a very exciting project and I’m elated to see that it’s begun.”
