Local residents save Oaks Theater
OAKMONT, PA — This story in the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review highlights some Pennsylvania theater success stories along with some history of moviegoing in the area.
When an opportunity to buy the movie theater she used to frequent as a child came up six years ago, Meg Burkardt and two friends jumped at the chance.
Burkardt, Cyndi Yount and Marc Serrao, all of Penn Hills, bought the Oaks Theater in Oakmont with one goal in mind: preserving a dying breed.
“This is definitely a labor of love,” Burkardt said.
