Seventy-year-old Morris theater to add screens
MORRIS, MN – Currently run by a theater cooperative, the Morris Theater, which opened in 1940, will soon acquire two more screens and get some much needed structural improvements.
The theater only has one screen, and movie contracts require the theater to reserve that screen for up to three weeks for one movie making airing multiple new movies impossible. By adding the two other screens, Morris Theater will be able to air a new movie every week.
According to Cooperative members the theater struggles to bring in customers after the first week of a movie. The cooperative plans to spend roughly $900,000 to not only add the two other theaters and repair the current one.
