MARTINSBURG, WV — After a devastating fire that practically destroyed it the Berkeley Plaza Theatre could be back next month.

Elliott said only five of the seven auditoriums, each outfitted with new screens and curtains, initially will be opened for movie showings. The remaining two need more work because they received the most damage, but he plans to eventually reopen them.

“I want to have a special grand opening,” Elliott said. “We’re going to work something up.”

He also wants to see the multiplex reopen for the patrons who appreciate the affordable movie tickets — $3 for afternoon matinees, and $5 for evening screenings.

I ran into a guy last week who used to own an ice cream shop at the Plaza. He told me the new target date for re-opening is Feb 16.

God speed to Robert Elliott and his dad Garland (the Asst. Manager) for their efforts to re-open this chunk of old time Americana.
