Still a great place to see a movie.

The Multiplex in Johnstown continues to show first run motion pictures. It is well maintained.

Partners Bruce Wendell and Joseph Tesiero will reopen the former Johnstown Movie Plex on December 5, 2009.

The Cinema North Corporation has ceased operations. The Johnstown Movieplex 9 is closed. The Manager of the Pyramid Mall, where it is located, hopes to get another movie chain to take over the building.

The chain for this theater should be Cinema North Corporation.

Wow I go here a lot and I’m surprised at the people who complain. I was watching a movie, the film got screwed up so I went and told them and next thing you know its fixed. It may of been that bratty teen who made your life a living hell there, not the entire establishment. Also about it being cold, you went in july i’m assuming because that is what the date is when you posted, would you really want a toasty theatre in the middle of july? Be realistic and stop complaining.

I am a local teacher in the area and I want to let you know what wonderful place this theater is, I also Know Ms. Bouck,please Remember like the other comment said “THERE ARE TWO SIDES TO EVERY STORY”. Shame on those who have too much time on their hands and like conflict. And also in the 10 years I ’ve gone to this theater, I asked, they have never had a nc-17 movie there.

I find it refreshing to hear the opinion of the employees of the theater (and their friends and family) who do not prefer a quiet, comfortably heated theater; where an adult crowd can watch & hear an nc-17 film containing graphic sex, sadistic torture scenes or any such thing completely unsuitable for my 12 or 13 year old unsupervised child. Unless you are there to watch a less controversial/ less graphic movie that does not appeal as much to the younger patrons or attending a film with your kids while wearing your winter boots and jacket; I think that the 15 minute ride to the next theater is worth it even though I have the typical hectic schedule of any devoted mom and homemaker while working full time.

I go to the Johnstown Movie Plex at least once a week,with my kids and the staff and manager are wonderful, I ’ve been going since it opened and if there was a problem, they have been handled very professionaly by the manager. I think the people on this site who have negative things to say, (one) didn’t get things their way (two)have too much time on there hands. I think the Movie Plex is wonderful, the prices are good, popcorn is excellent, the staff is friendly and happy and they go out of their way to please. I ’ve been to the other theaters in our area, NO Thanks I love the wonderful vibes at the Johnstown theater. And remember there is ALWAYS TWO SIDES TO EVERY STORY!!!!

I enjoy going to The Johnstown Movie-Plex, it’s one of the nicest theatre’s in the area and sure beats having to go 45 mins down the road to watch a movie, as well as pay for the extra gas and extra price in tickets. The staff has always been very nice and willing to help. I have to agree that the theatre isn’t a babysitter for people with kids even though it sure seems that’s what the parents in Johnstown do, just drop off thier kids on the weekend and expect them to actually go see a movie.

This is not my first problem there but it WILL be my last (they would not refund tickets when patrons talked so loudly I could not hear the movie, I left the theater after complaining to her during the movie.)I HAVE contacted Cinema North. They offered no response…and the manager in question wrote a letter in response to my Better Business Bureau complaint confabulating the entire incident to make me sound a crazed lunatic. The statement made by the sign was contrary to their business practice, as she confirmed in that letter (even further; what I witnessed when the children bought the tickets was not what she said happened yet I have no proof). In fact; she clarified the fact I made about ID…she said the children were allowed to by the tickets because an adult was called. The B.B.B. was satisfied and informed me that civil court was my next recourse. My conclusion is… Johnstown Movie-Plex Nine…No photo id required, no complaints addressed, no ethical business practice left unturned.

Cinema North should be made aware of this. It will benefit Johnstown’s parents who are not aware of the manager’s policy. Lost Memory has been nice enough to make it easy to connect to Cinema North.

The sign in the window at Johnstown Movieplex 9 states; “For R-Rated films you must be 17 years of age or accompanied by a parent or adult guardian.” Photo ID required.“ Yet when I witnessed my 12 year old’s friends (12 year olds also) purchase tickets for Hostel II, rated R, I asked the children how they bought the tickets with no guardian. They told me the clerk often does this…he has gotten a phone call from another friend’s mom to allow the kids to buy whatever; they do it all the time. I asked the manager if she knew this was happening and she stated "It is not a violation of law, we only do it for a courtesy to Hollywood. I will not remove the sign (as I read it to her) and we are not a Friday Night Babysitter.” I ask, is this not a false advertisement? Misleading the consumer and violating children are of no concern to her. I commiserate with the struggling business owner trying to make a buck but this is corrupt. The other comment posted here is 100% correct as well. I will be taking my business elsewhere. Accomidating customers is not her goal.

Pandatear, contact Cinema North who owns the theatre. They have a website and will respond to you. It sounds like there is a new manager there who needs to be talked to as well as his staff).

This theatre has to be the worst theatre that I ever have been in. First I was asked to open my purse then my coat pockets, not for camcorders, guns or that, FOR FOOD!! I never felt like a criminal in my life for bringing a candy bar, 1 I tell you, in my life my god they were like I was going to break it up in to pieces and start selling it. The theatre was so cold I would have brought a blanket if I ever had to see a movie there again. They never get the rare movies or movies that might be a little risky. EVERY!!! time I have been there they have film problems and sound problems and not even a apology from the staff or management. One of the bratty teens that work there even said under there breath “Then go some place else” when I ask why its always so cold in theatre. This other time I was near another theatre but the movie I wanted to see was playing a little too late so I called and there recorded message told me one time and I get there and it had already started. Again the management never there when someone has to complain. All in all I say drive a little farther and get your moneys worth at a different place.

The manager is very accommodating to the patrons of this multiplex
