The principal at Gresham Middle School in Knoxville will soon have a wish fulfilled.

The 1930's-era auditorium at the school was recently renovated.
Principal Donna Parker wants to make it into a movie theater once again.

Wednesday, representatives from Regal Cinemas were on site taking measurements and checking out the projection room. They have teamed up with WBIR to install a high tech video projector and screen.

"I want to show movies here. I want to showcase the talents of our children here in this schoolhouse and I want the community to feel like that they can do something with it," said Parker.

The folks from Regal hope to have the donated projector and screen installed in three to four months.
