The theater opened in 1970 by the late J Kenneth Ridenour. Ridenour operated the theater from 1970 to 1989.

The R stands for Recher. I contacted RC Theatres using their website…It was like pulling teeth to get an answer out of them.

Trolleyguy…from your post I take it you have diabetes…So being responsible for your health, you should know that movie theater snack foods might not be good for you.

I thought the Lycoming Mall UA was a 5 screener. Given some thought, it was a 4 screener.

JohnMessick commented about The End of Theatrical Moviegoing? on Aug 14, 2010 at 5:44 pm

Bobc007…I do not think Mark Lipsky took that into account when he wrote his blog piece. People never follow the money trail from the time the movie hits the screen to the time it airs on network tv and all points in between..all made to generate income. Take away one of those points, and the studio loses money. As we know the studios never want to lose a buck.

Scott…I have always found that once you know how something works, your life tends to become easier. If Al would understand captialism, I am sure his mind would not be filled with all that crap that is now lodged there. I enjoy reading your posts.

I think you need to look at who was holding office before Reagan. Reagan did cut taxes and the economy did take off. Remember RICH people invest…which creates jobs..YOU can’t deny that. Why worry about someone getting rich?

I would like to know what the unemployement was back when Reagan was president verus today…today tight regulations has strangled growth. Here is something to think about. Are we a freer society today? or when Reagan was in office?
