MADISON, Ala. (WHNT) - Work has once again stalled on Madison's upcoming movie theater, CinePlanet 15, on Hughes Road.

In February, we told you that several lawsuits had been filed against multiple companies involved in the construction process claiming that construction companies had not been paid.

Now, work on the theater has completely stopped as the construction company, Consolidated Construction, is no longer on the job. The attorney representing the company, Allen Anderson, tells us Consolidated Construction was terminated - wrongly, he believes.

Anderson said the company hasn't been paid more than $1 million owed for work already completed on the theater.

Madison building director Jimmy Morgan said the dispute, now in arbitration, will further slow down the project.

Multiple attempts to contact the theater's owner, Rainbow Cinemas, have been met only with silence.
