Multiplex transformed into gym

NORTH HUNTINGDON, PA — The four-screen Norwin Hills Cinema is being transformed into Galaxy Fitness with an anticipated January opening.

Cinema 1 will become a studio with 60 pieces of cardio equipment while the walls between the other theaters will be torn down to accommodate a fitness center for kids.

The sloped flooring is being leveled with Styrofoam and then topped with concrete. Levelling the floor is the most difficult aspect of the renovation.

Showers are also being added to the rest rooms and the ceilings will be retooled.

The Norwin Hills Cinema closed last August after 28 years of showing movies. Galaxy Fitness has pledged to give the theater seats to the 70-year-old, 375-seat Lamp Theatre in downtown Irwin which is being renovated.

Dickinson had a huge megaplex in Kansas City, the SouthGlen, after they sold it to Goodrich it turned into the SouthQuality. It was a REALLY nice theatre, its now a 24 Hour Fitness. I just cant picture turning something like a theatre into a gym.
