Main-street America'-styled movie theater planned for Cumming City Center

Plans for the proposed Cumming City Center  includes shops, restaurants, miniature golf and, now, a theater for both new and classic films.

The city of Cumming recently debuted plans for the new theater online,  that seat about 700 people and, in addition to movies, could host “concerts, dance recitals, clogging competitions” and more.  The City Center will be located on Canton Highway and will abut Forsyth Central High School on a 75-acre plot of land. The development will feature walking trails, park, space for businesses and a lake with a fountain.  Across Canton Highway, about 14 acres will also be donated to the city and will include other walking trails.  

 

Groundbreaking on the project could happen later this summer.  The schedule looks like it will be on the project in August.  Sewer lines through the project have to be run and upgraded and upsized.  That will be the first part of the project.

 

Forsyth Central and the city center will share a parking lot located northwest of the school’s football stadium.

Though the center will largely be green space and businesses, the Cumming Police Department and the city’s municipal court will also move to the development.
