Dunkirk, NY: Spotlight Cinemas Dunkirk Under New Ownership [Aug 19, 2022]

Saw a movie here this week. They seemed kind of understaffed. The county fair was in town, and they may not have expected the large crown of 30-40 people to come in to watch movies instead of see the popular grandstand event at the fair.

No real improvements to the theater in the last three years. Half built displays on the right hand side when you walk in the front door. It sure would be nice if they fixed the place up, but I understand why they don’t sink large amounts of money in the place.

Restrooms have larger issues. 2 years, and no stadium seats, so I guess thats not going to happen.

It’s been open a year now, and still needs work. The restrooms have some issues. Some of the video games have severe playability issues. At least one of the screens has large spots on it.

Advertised recently that they have a 3d screen now. And during a recent weekend, the owner stated that the two largest rooms are going to be adjusted to being stadium seating. (I was not there for that, so at this time, I would only call this a rumor. But I heard it from a trustworthy source.)

Still suffers from the same issues that bothered me when it first opened. The seating is still not staggered, and there is no real slope to the rooms. (Unless, by staggering, you offset the seats by 1.2 inch in random directions from one row to the next.) When I saw a movie here recently, a woman sitting 3 rows in front of obscured a portion of the screen. Still can’t rate this theater as a worthy place to see a movie.

The theater is reopening today, Dec 18, 2009, under new management. According to the local paper, it is actually old management, the guy who built the theater in the first place. He claims better seats and lower prices.

Corporate Info:

Glenwood Movieplex Coroporation
Kevin Mullin, Owner
118 Oxyoke Drive
Rutland, VT 05701-9301
(802) 353-6770

The paper also states that he is opening locations in Painted Post and Hudson, NY.

There are rumors of a new owner, but I have been unable to confirm anything yet. However, Over the last week or so I seen a dumpster out in front, and 2-4 cars parked in front of the theater; along with interior and some exterior lights on.

Lets hope that if someone is fixing this place up, they do a decent job, including staggering the rows. (When built, the ‘designer’ set the seats up so that every seat was aligned from front to back. Never a good seat in the house.)

This cinema is locate in a former Ames Department Store, and opened circa 1990. Was a Hoyt’s cinema in the mid to late 1990’s.
