Overland Park success

BOISE, ID — This article raves about how the Overland Park Cinema is the best in Boise.

For a mere $4 you can get a bag of popcorn and a soda and sit down to enjoy a second-run, but first-class flick. Families can enjoy a real movie night-out for minor coin. Skip the popcorn, and a kid gets in for just $2. The theater also boasts $1 Tuesday movies and daily matinees.

The movie house, with its three cinemas, is practically hidden in the middle of the Overland Park Shopping Center. But plenty of nearby parking makes up for the lack of a huge marquee. Theater owners upgraded seating and sound in recent years.

Owner Mike Lehosit credits the theater’s success to low profit margins and a family orientation.

WOW!!! I actually remember when we had these here in New Jersey. I was actually a projectionist at quite a few of them. Wish they would come back, but alas, its just a pipe dream.
