According to a press release sent out by Marie Moe, executive director at Dickinson State University, after months of discussion Odyssey Entertainment, Inc. and Dickinson State University  signed a lease on Wednesday allowing the entertainment group to use space in the Student Center at DSU.

The university conducted an internal survey of faculty, staff and students before signing the lease.

“It was important to the university that we first understand our campus needs,” said DSU President Dr. Thomas Mitzel. “Overall, the input from the campus was supportive.”

Marty Parsons, vice president for finance and administration at DSU said, “There were some concerns that needed to be addressed. . . The University worked with legal counsel and the City of Dickinson to make sure that the project was sound before we moved forward.”

The cinema will have stadium seating and electric power luxury recliners, and Odyssey  projects an opening date later this month. 

The theater will be known as the Odyssey University Cinema, as Odyssey’s is constructing a new theater called the Dakota Grand 8 in Downtown Dickinson this Spring.

Odyssey previously had a theater at the Prairie Hills Mall in Dickinson, but it closed its doors earlier this Fall.

“We felt it was important to keep a theater available to our patrons of Dickinson and the possibility of working with the fine folks at DSU to make it happen is a great opportunity for both Odyssey and DSU,” said Gary Westmark, vice president of operations for Odyssey Theaters.
