PALMYRA, PA — After eleven years of operation, Palmyra, Pennsylvania’s Cinema Center 12 has closed.

As far as funerals go, this one went almost unnoticed.

There was no big motorcade, no cascading flower arrangements, no somber speeches. Just a moving van, some cardboard boxes and a couple of lonely popcorn kernels.

After 11 years as the town’s only movie theater, the Cinema Center of Palmyra closed last week.

This theatre was run by the Troutman family, the same people who ran the Capitol theatre in Bloomsburg, Pa. into the ground. I did help with the installation of the cinema center but they just don’t care. You can’t charge $5.00 a hotdog in Central Pa. just because that is what they pay in New York,, they tried it guess what it failed. I feel sorry for the people nice area.
