ENTERPRISE, OR — Closed since late 2008, the OK Theater in Enterprise has re-opened under new ownership. (And, by coincidence, the opening attraction was “Star Trek”).

Nine months after the 90-year-old movie theater turned off its projector and closed up shop at the end of 2008, it fired up the dusty equipment under new ownership Saturday, Sept. 12, for a test run and as a benefit for the local food bank. The theater will re-open for good Friday, Sept. 18.

Approximately 225 lined up with two cans of food donation to see “Star Trek” and welcome the theater back into their lives at the benefit showing.
