Its a discount house with tickets ranges from$1.00 to 2.00. They may hardly have no money for maitenance.
Ron N., according to their website they are running current sub-run releases. (4/2/2012)
I was at this theatre some time ago on a Saturday evening and it was absolutely empty except for the special event I was attending. I’m really surprised that it stays open.
the only reason it probably stays open is it is owned and operated by the management company leasing the property.. Probably an effort to make enough to pay the property taxes on the land. I am supprised that anyone re-opened that theater after 11 years being closed anyway.. It was definatly unique with the elevated booth and view of projection from the lobby, but at best it has always been a lackluster operation.
Theatre website indicates that 4 of the 8 screens now have digital projection.
The CONTINENT was where I saw RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK I think. They gave away a special small magazine like thing.
Currently screening a mix of second run and Bollywood films.
