Big time movement now. Runoff/orange fences everywhere. Big toys, moving big piles of dirt. I'll try and get some photos later today.

Here's photos of the current progress as of June 30 2017. I'll update bi-weekly if there's interest. P.s how do I have it not flip my photos?

Talked to folks today, and it looks like August 2018 is the new target date. They've talked to three or four national chains to come in as the restaurant on the south end. No names given.

fallschase theater ground clearing 2017072 sm.jpg
Ground clearing has begun. This was 7/2/2017.

Never sure these projects are going to get off of the ground until the bulldozers start working.

Front page of the Dem today.

"Smith said he's not just doing the Cobb Theatre. There's more to come, but he declined to offer further details."

This is really moving along. They're saying Fall of 2018, and I wondered why it might take so long. A lot of iron going into this building. Big iron. A friend is doing the HVAC insulation on the project and he says that it's really high end, with nothing left to chance. I guess that we'll get to see the screens by Halloween.

CMX Cinemas acquires Cobb Theaters. This could make things interesting.

I missed the sale. I was looking at Cobb Rewards and things like that, and stumbled across it. It's close to my house, so we're pretty interested.

I wonder if this few lines it going to help or hurt in Tallahassee? Will be interested in seeing what happens over the next few motnhs.

"These luxury-class of movie theatres are the next big trend in movie experiences. While market leader AMC, for one, has experimented with this model, it hasn’t gone as far CMX and others in elevating the experience. Regal, the other big multiplex player, has largely ignored the trend. As a result, AMC and Regal’s fortunes depend primarily on the blockbuster -- or not -- movie offerings coming out of Hollywood.

CMX and others of its ilk do not. Castelazo explains “CMX has set a new standard, starting in Miami, in the guest’s movie-going experience. Its overall design is inspired by a luxury hotel lobby design, two bars, a luxury upstairs lounge, full-service dining experience before, during or after your movie and laser technology.” Such added amenities make these theatres true destinations, and as a result, tend to attract more mid-week audiences than traditional movie theaters, he tells me.

And these audiences will pay higher ticket prices and spend significantly more on their dining experiences. An added benefit, Castelzo notes, is that, “Luxury cinema-goers tend to be more frequent and heavy visitors vs. a traditional theater-goer due to the amenities and services available.”

They also want more sophisticated movies to watch. So these theatres show movies that film aficionados want to see. Not just blockbuster movies, but foreign, indie and award-winning and nominated films that appeal to an upscale, educated and artistically-inclined audience."

Alamo Drafthouse has been ahead of the curve on this trend by about 20 years. They've created spaces for real film nerds to come and enjoy movies. They do all sorts of special events, and really cater to their audiences. They show crazy found footage ahead of their films, instead of advertisements. Their "no talking, we will seriously kick you out" policy is the best. I wish we had something like that here.

I'm sure Florida will still be contributing to the site. I don't think much will change, what does change might be welcomed.

I guess the question one has to ask is what is the target market for the CMX approach and is there enough of that market in Tally to support it.

This is what I am worried about.

I'm kind of concerned about that. One of the nice things about the site being 'independent' is there is not much concern about spin regarding projects under a particular ownership or affiliation.

This statement worries me. It suggests: 1) there will be no neutrality within the non-local marketplace; and 2) there will be no neutrality within the local marketplace either, outside of our sharing of information on forums. NAI TALCOR might, for example, write stories only about their properties and show only those stories on the front page to the exclusion of all others. Sure, site members can share information on the forums. But the website will change. It will no longer be neutral.

And I get it. NAI TALCOR didn't purchase UrbanTallahassee as a magnanimous gesture to the community. The company intends to monetize this site for its benefit. It offered the owner a price he would accept in exchange for his relinquishing ownership, and it will seek the fruits of its investment.
