The San Luis Obispo Tribune writes:

An IMAX movie theater could be rolling into downtown San Luis Obispo.

Local developers Rob Rossi and John King want the city to approve plans to build an IMAX theater behind the Fremont theater, where a small parking lot is located.

The Fremont Square Entertainment Complex is a combination of the historic Fremont theater, the renovation of the three adjacent screens known as Mission Cinemas and the addition of the proposed IMAX theater.

Rossi said he came up with the idea for an IMAX theater in the heart of downtown San Luis Obispo about 15 to 20 years ago. He believes now is the time to see the idea come to fruition.
