JohnMessick commented about Filmmaker Michael Moore wants to restore Michigan theaters on Aug 7, 2010 at 3:43 am

Most people DO NOT understand what capitalism is. I still wonder why Michael Moore imbibes in it, but hates it so.

My mistake….He didn’t own the National. I knew he owned 4 theaters. I got the Grand and the National mixed up.

Kelly Cadillac was built on farmland. I think Kelly has been there around 15 years plus or minus.

John..I remember as a kid, there was a drive in that you could see off 283 near the Millerville/East Petersburg exit. There is a bottled water company and if memory serves a trucking/trailer company. I thought that was home to the Comet.

Isn’t there a bottled water company on the land the Comet use to be on?

Ross, there was a 4 screen indoor theater on the premises, run by AMC. I haven’t been by as of late so I am not sure if that building still stands.

Several years ago I contacted the Dauphin County Historical Society. Looking for pictures of Harrisburg theaters I have several of the Senate. One of the Colonial. No interior shots. None of the other area theaters.

JohnMessick commented about Sony studio head asks for healthier food concessions at theaters on Mar 22, 2010 at 7:12 am

Michael Lynton is an idiot. If people were buying healthier snacks, the theater owners would have provided these snacks along time ago.
