Hollywood Casting Call

Matt Wagner, SBJ ReporterStarting tomorrow afternoon, Hollywood Theaters will hold a three-day job fair in hopes of hiring 40-60 employees for its long-awaited downtown Springfield theater, which is set to open in College Station this fall. The job fair will run from 4-8 p.m. Friday; 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Saturday; and 2-4 p.m. Sunday at the Holiday Inn Express on St. Louis Street.

Hollywood Vice President of Marketing Heather Wright tells SBJ that her company isn’t yet ready to announce a grand opening date or specific festivities. Better hurry. Quantum of Solace, the new Bond movie, opens Nov. 14.

Wright said the theater will have 14 screens with capabilities to play digital movies in four auditoriums, 3D in two and 35mm film in 10. The complex also will boast 100 percent Dolby Digital Surround Sound.
