ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The Albany High School cafeteria looked something like the scene out of a movie.

On Friday, the band played, the choir sung and the doors were opened for the first time.

The $5.5 million SPLOST project was a long time coming. 

Before construction, there was nowhere to cook food in the building. 

Breakfast and lunch were prepared every day at Dougherty Middle School and brought to the high school. 

"For my students, I do anything and that was about anything, so for them to come to a new facility I think it is well deserved," said Cafeteria Site Supervisor Markeith Paramore.

"I thought that only existed on Hollywood movies, but cafeterias really do have comfort food lines, TVs, water refillables and it's quite wonderful," explained sophomore Cameron Drake.

Drake said that he enjoyed the time he spent with his friends in the lunchroom, but now it will be even better.
