Norwin Cinemas to end 28-year run
NORTH HUNTINGDON, PA — Never changing from its 4-screen format, the Norwin Cinemas is finally succumbing to the competition and closing its doors.
Norwin Cinemas made its debut with advanced technology for its time, but because of slow business throughout the years, the theater was never upgraded to newer digital technology, Kight said.
After almost 30 years, the theater still uses its original 35 mm projection equipment, which in 1980 was a step toward better quality special effects with less granularity.
Even when it first opened, Kight said, the owners did not predict great success for the theater because it was competing with a larger, more popular one at Eastgate shopping center near Greensburg.
