|IMAX Theatre's in New England as of January 2011|
I could see an IMAX theatre in one of the larger Lincoln Square buildings as part of a plan to develop the North Main area as a museum destination (See Jim M's post suggesting a museum of space in the AT&T building in North Main). I could also see an IMAX theatre coupled with a traditional theatre complex as part of a larger entertainment complex associated with the proposed Pitch at Wyman-Gordon Field near Kelley Square. I really think that the Canal District has a future as Worcester's 24/7 entertainment district and a cinema complex with IMAX would complement other ongoing efforts in the area. There was talk about City Square having a movie complex back when Berkley still controlled the deal, but I think a theatre complex with IMAX integrated into the urban fabric on the Wyman-Gordon site near Kelley Square is a far superior site than in City Square (I would much rather see the Paris Cinema/Capitol Theatre on Franklin St. rehabbed as an art cinema in this location).
