    WESTFALL, PA — Located in a space once occupied by a supermarket, the Majestic 7 opened on May 20. Operated by Majestic-Star of Teaneck, New Jersey, the seven-screen theater will be the only theater in a twenty mile radius, featuring wall-to-wall screens, digital projection and “wild purple” carpet.

    New, high-back rocking seats, still covered in protective plastic, give off a sort of new-car smell in each auditorium.

    The cinema has been under construction for the last six months. Page and partner Tom Ferrie signed a deal in late 2010 to take on the $3 million project, which includes full digital 3-D projection and sound and wall-to-wall screens.
