DECATUR, AL (WAFF) -

It's another week and another business opening in Decatur.

Bringing jobs with it, Kohl's celebrated its new-location, grand opening Wednesday night, and Thursday a new, top-of-the-line movie theater will open.

Carmike Cinemas is opening a 12-screen, "Big D, for Digital" experience - a first for Alabama.

A ribbon cutting ceremony was held Wednesday night.

With the theater upgrade comes a new area of job openings.

Carmike's marketing director, Terrell Mayton, said he is happy to be part of the economic boom in Decatur.

"It's been great. The Kohl's opening up down the road, and also Mellow Mushroom and a new Carmike 12 here at the Decatur Mall. You see all the new and different things that are happening and the construction on the roadways. It's just a really dynamic time in Decatur, and we hope to be part of the economic engine," said Mayton.

The new movie theater will open Thursday at 7 p.m.
