AUBURN, NY — The Movieplex 10 has now re-opened, operated by Jason and Jeff Yantz, whose father Bill, is also a theater operator. This was one of Cinema North’s theaters; the company shut down its operations in October, but some of its theaters are finding new management.

The new owners are brothers Jason and Jeff Yantz, who are taking on their first independent venture after years of combined experience in the movie business. They are sons of Bill Yantz, owner of Rochester Theatre Management, which runs the cinema at Fingerlakes Mall in Aurelius.

Jason Yantz said Monday that they will do some basic cleanup in the building, but much of the cinema will initially remain the same. There will be improvements within the next year throughout the facility, he said.

Here’s the full story from the Citizen.

In addition, the Movieplex 8 in North Adams, MA has also reopened; read more here.
