Two auditoriums at the Premiere Cinemas' Bassett theater are being torn down for the IMAX auditorium.  The 420 seat theater will be six stories high and have a 75-foot-wide screen.

Marketing Manager of Bassett Place, Marguerite Byers, said construction should be done by the fall.

The theater will show IMAX's signature documentary films as well as IMAX-remastered Hollywood blockbusters.
