COSHOCTON, OH — The couple who managed the Hollywood Studios Movie Theater at the Downtowner Plaza for eight years has now become its owners.

Jodi and Kim Lowe are renaming the three-screen multiplex Shelby Theaters after their daughter who passed away when she was only nine-days old.

The theater closed last August due to declining profits because of the economy and because of a new stadium-style multiplex 20 miles away in nearby Zanesville.

The couple will be replacing ceiling tiles, laying new carpet, painting, and making general repairs prior to opening on November 7th.

The theater will concentrate on family-style first-run movies with $2 matinees and $4 evening admissions.

I hope they make it. We need more people like them in the business.
