MADISON, Ala. (WHNT) -- The dormant Madison movie theater project may be getting a second wind, following the contractor's decision to renew the building permit.

The Cineplanet 15 Cinemas, to be located off Hughes Road, was announced by excited city officials a year ago.

It was set to open before Christmas 2015, but the project stalled in September after a disagreement between the developer, Memphis-based Rainbow Cinemas and the contractor, Huntsville-based Consolidated Construction Company of Alabama.

The two sides filed lawsuits.  Subcontractors on the project also filed lawsuits seeking payment for work performed.

Some of the cases are scheduled for a July trial – though it is likely to be delayed – but a trial may not be necessary.

A Consolidated Construction Company representative told WHNT News 19 on Thursday the company is talking to the developer, and the two sides are trying to work out differences.

Consolidated said work on the project could resume “hopefully soon.”
